Don't beat yourself up over what you could have or should have done. The past is gone. Move on to the future.
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.
I'd accepted a while ago that there were too many reasons for me to even think about him romantically anymore. Every once in a while, I slipped a little and kind of wished he would too. It'd have been nice to know that he still wanted me, that I still drove him crazy. Studying him now, I realized he might not ever slip because I didn't drive him crazy anymore. It was a depressing thought.
We can't stop living because other people are dead.
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?
Dierdre the counselor must not have had much of a life, because she scheduled our next appointment on a Sunday. I wasn't so thrilled about it, seeing as it wasn't just my day off-it was also the day my friends had off. Orders were orders, however, so I grudgingly showed up.
People who are crazy rarely question whether they're crazy.
You two are a match made in heaven. Or somewhere.
If I had learned anything in my life about love, it was that they were tenous things that could end at any moment. Caution was essential-but not at the cost of risking your life
You did what you did out of love. I can't be mad at you over that. It was stupid, but that's how love is. Do you have any idea what I'd do for you? To keep you safe?
It's worth it. It's worth giving up the sun and magic.
You understand your responsibilities better than guardians twice your age. You'll do what you have to do to succeed.
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.
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 getting better at avoiding this, but when something sets me off, I tend to punch first and then find out who I actually his later.
Well, she was talking to me. That's enough to make anyone lose their temper. And I accused her of sleeping with my dad because he was the soundest evolutionary choice.
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.
Don't worry, little dhampir. You might be surrounded by clouds, but you'll always be like sunshine to me.
Right. As opposed to your cradle-robbing mentor. I don't really see you making much progress with him.
You will lose what you value most, so treasure it while you can.
It matters to me. That's what you don't get. You can't understand. You can't understand what it's like knowing what I did. That whole time being Strigoi...It's like a dream now, but it's one I remember clearly. There can be no forgiveness for me. And what happened with you? I remember that most of all. Everything I did. Everything I wanted to do.
You'll have your own superhero club before you know it. -Christian Ozera
Lissa knelt down, compassion on her face. I wasn't surprised, since she'd always had a thing for animals. She'd lectured me for days after I'd instigated the infamous hamster-and-hermit-crab fight. I'd viewed the fight as a testing of worthy opponents. She'd seen it as animal cruelty.
I can be a good friend, or a bad enemy.
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.
I'm just confused. I can't read your signals. One moment you're hot, the next you're cold. You tell me you want me, you tell me you don't. If you picked one, that'd be fine, but you keep making me think one thing and then you end up going in a completely different direction. Not just now-all the time.
Well. Like I said, I dont want to fight anymore. I dont want us to hate each other. And ... well ... I squeezed my eyes shut and then opened them. No matter how I fee about us ... I want you to be happy
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.
Giving advice was a lot harder than following it.
Some people read books for fun.
You, know I'm the Queen's favorite great nephew, Well, yeah I'm her only great nephew, but that's not important, I'd still be her favorite...
It occurred to me that I was standing face to face with the hero of a love story nearly as dramatic as my own.
And sometimes, if I was really, really lucky, he'd smile at me. A real smile, too-not the dry one that accompanied the sarcasm we tossed around so often. I didn't want to admit it to anyone-not to Lissa, not even to myself-but some days, I lived for those smiles.
Love and loyalty runs deeper than blood
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
We can be together, Rose. Soon. We're almost there. And nothing will ever keep us apart.......
In the real world, you can make your own miracles.
What matters is that someone-that you-know me that well. When a person can see into your soul, it's hard. It forces you to be open. Vulnerable. It's much easier being with someone who's just more of a casual friend.
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!
Goodbye. Thanks for your help... I... I'll miss you. -Rose to Mason
That's pretty weird-and when I say something's weird, you know it's serious.
Your wit is always such a delight, Mr. Zeklos. I can barely contain myself around it.
