Teaser Tuesday - The Way of Kings

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

This passage made me giggle - The ardent (sort of a holy teacher/priest, I think), has just threatened to dance a jig on the table unless Shallan stops treating him so reverently.  She begs him not to...

The Tease:
 ""Are you certain?" he glanced at the desk appraisingly.
"Yes," Shallan said, imagining the ardent teetering and making a misstep, then falling off the balcony and plunging dozens of feet to the ground below.
"Please, I promise not to respect you any longer!""
 -The Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson
