Eerily, the coronation was kind of a reverse of Tatiana?s funeral. What was the old saying? The queen is dead. Long live the queen
I think we got in more trouble with Aunt Tasha,? said Christian. ?She was kind of pissed off that we didn?t tell her what was going on. I think she probably wanted to blow up the statues herself.
Some rules are bigger than the universe.
Eighteen, and already you've been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see. I couldn't be prouder.
I'm backing down now. I really do love you. That's why I'm doing this.
Sometimes talking to you is like talking to myself: pretty damned annoying.
Everything I?d been taught about eluding someone came rushing back to my head. What I wanted to do more than anything was look around and see if I had a follower, but that would have definitely attracted attention.
Impossible situations are our specialty.
Thats why your doing this? Because Lissa told you to?
For a moment, I was captivated as I studied them side by side. My mother: the perfect picture of guardian excellence and decorum. My father: always capable of achieving his goals, no matter how twisted the means. Uneasily, I began to understand how I'd inherited my bizarre personality.
It was like having a genie. I'd only get so many wishes.
The book's always better than the movie.
Fortunately for Dimitri, I had his back.
It was nice to see someone who appreciated her for her character, no matter how disgusted Christian was by the idea of ANYONE dating his aunt. And I actually kind of liked seeing Christian so obviously tormented. It was good for him.
There was a look of woe on his face that was almost comical. Raids, bullets, criminals...no problem. A missing duster? Crisis.
Having your own, um, cave at eighteen is pretty cool.
It was the most convulted, ridiculous piece of logic I'd heard in awhile... It was something I would have come up with.
They?re shooting at us,? I said incredulously. ?They?re actually shooting at us!
Honor, I thought. For real: the guardians should have taught it. Because I hadn't learned it.
Juliet had it easy; she never had to kill Romeo.
This was the last thing I expected. You destroy my life and then feed me some inspiratonal philosophy.
How do you prove we exist? Maybe we don't.
Life, unfortunately, doesn?t seem to care what we want. Act now while you can actually stop it from being a disaster.
Which is weird. But not the craziest thing I can think of Rose doing.? I appreciated the support.
I ALWAYS LOOK YOU.YOU HAVE TO KNOW
Life, unfortunately, doesn't seem to care what we want.
Why not the Bahamas? Or the Corn Palace?
And I told you, I'm not going to pursue another man's girlfriend. You want to talk honor. There it is in its purest form
I always love it whenever Rose delivers one of her witty one-liners-particularly when it's a completely serious situation. The contrast always amuses me, but then, I'm biased.
My death will not be penciled on someone's calendar.
You know, Aunt Tasha makes jokes about how you?d actually be a better queen than the others, except sometimes . . . I don?t think she?s joking.
Behaviors and feelings rarely line up
I don't know, but I think it's going to be good.
My life didn?t need to be on the line for me to enjoy dessert.
You managed to get him a duster, but you couldn't find me a pair of jeans?
Being with him after so long, after everything we'd endured...it was like coming home.
I felt a strange fluttering sensation in my chest. Butterflies, cardiac arrest . . . it was hard to say what exactly.
Really, it's my fault. It was there. A hundred times there. How often did I see it? I knew. It kept happening. Over and over, you'd say you were through with him...and over and over, I'd believe it...no matter what my eyes showed me. No matter what my heart told me. My. Fault.
You said you were a victim. That's why...that's why ultimately, you and I aren't matched for each other. In spite of everything that's happened, I've never though of myself that way. Being a victim means you're powerless. That you won't take action. Always...always I've done something to fight for myself...for others. No matter what.
But once in a while . . . I don't know. I feel so close, Rose. So close to the edge. Like if I allow myself one small misstep, I'll plunge away and never come back. It's like I'll lose myself.
I have it on good authority that Victor's going to have car trouble. Also that Robert really likes Cheerios, so if you want some, you're out of luck. He doesn't seem like the sharing type.
Sex had been amazing, but it wasn't a magical cure for everything. Damn. Somewhere along the way, I'd picked up common sense.
You're better than this. Better than whatever it is you're going to do now.
But why would Victor and Robert take her? And how the hell did two old men subdue a teenage girl anyway?
I hoped Lissa remained the only one with a surprise sibling.
She didn?t know if she could carry on by herself, but then, she realized that if this wasn?t a dream-and dear God, did it feel real-there was no magic ?stop? in real life. If she couldn?t deal with loneliness in a dream, she never would be able to while waking.
You've always been my equal, Roza.
Dmitri was at a total loss. It was a common reaction for people when I agreed to do something reasonable.
I looked back and forth at them in amazement. I didn't know if I was witnessing a fight or foreplay. I wasn't thrilled about either option.
She heard Adrian say to Christian, ?You know, your shirt?s kind of grungy-looking. Seems like you could put in a little more effort since you?re dating a princess.?
