There were drinks and food in full force, and some Moroi guy had a guitar out and was trying to impress girls with his musical skills-which were nonexistent. In fact, his music was so awful that he might have discovered a new way to kill Strigoi.
Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass
Knowing Lissa missed me hurt almost more than if she'd completely written me off. I'd never wanted to hurt her. Even when I'd resented her for feeling like she was controlling my life, I'd never hated her. I loved her like a sister and couldn't stand the thought of her suffering now on my behalf. How had things gotten so screwed up between us?
We can be together, Rose. Soon. We're almost there. And nothing will ever keep us apart.......
Because it's our duty to God to protect the rest of humanity from evil creatures of the night.
Okay, God, I thought. Get me out of this and I'll stop my half-assed church-going ways. You got me past a pack of Strigoi tonight. I mean, trapping that one between the doors really shouldn't have worked, so clearly you're on board. Let me get out of here, and I'll...I don't know. Donate Adrian's money to the poor. Get baptized. Join a convent. Well, no. Not that last one.
We studied our angels for a few moments more, looking at where we had lain side by side in that sweet, quiet moment. I wished what I'd said was true, that we had truly left our mark on the mountain. But I knew that after the next snowfall, our angels would disappear into the whiteness and be nothing more than a memory.
Bound by Love, But sworn to Kill...
Promises. I was drowning in promises.
We were going to kill ourselves in trying to kill each other.
Don't beat yourself up over what you could have or should have done. The past is gone. Move on to the future.
Rose, do you think I'd do anything that would hurt you.- Dimitri to Rose
Would he have said he loved me? I would ask myself that for the rest of my life.
For a moment, staring down and realizing what I'd just done, I wanted to throw myself in after him, because surely there was no way I could go on living now.
She says you're not awake until you're actually out of bed and standing up.
Yet, it had been Dimitri's gentleness and thoughtfulness mixed with that deadliness that made him so wonderful. The same hands that wielded stakes with such precision would carefully brush the hair out of my face. The eyes that could astutely spot any danger in the area would regard me wonderingly and worshipfully, like I was the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world.
I can be a good friend, or a bad enemy.
Study's overrated. Just find someone smart to copy off. -Adrian to Lissa
You forgot my first lesson: don't hesitate.
I had to be the next family Alchemist. My sister... well, she's older, and usually it's the oldest kid who has to do the job. But, she's kind of... worthless. -Sydney to Rose
Surely I must be a princess in an enchanted sleep. Any day now, this dream-no, nightmare would end, and I'd get my prince and happy ending.
You kill me, Rose. Everyday is agony without you.Empty. Alone. I pine for you, wondering if you're even still alive. -Adrian to Rose
I lost track of day and night too. My time was divided into Dimitri and not-Dimitri. He was my world. When he wasn't there, the moments were agony.
That's what I was supposed to say...
I unfolded the note, and it took me a few seconds to decipher Adrian's writing. If he did write me a dating proposal, I really hoped he would type it.
Then, I heard the pounding again-and worse, my whole bed shook violently. Someone was kicking it. Opening my eyes again, I turned and found myself staring into Yeva's shrewd dark eyes. If Sydney had met many dhampirs like Yeva, I could understand why she thought our race were minions of hell.
If your eyes weren't open, you wouldn't know the difference between dreaming and waking.
There was a lot of apologizing going on, but I realized that was how it was with people you cared about. You forgave each other and moved on.
I'm like a fine wine. I get better with age. The best is yet to come.
