A summer apart changes people.s
It's not Brittney's face, not her smile, not even her eyes. All of that surface stuff made the world see her as beautiful, but it was the deeper stuff that made her different.
Feelings can't be a part of this game.
Should I tell him I'm not afraid of being hurt? I'm afraid of not being in control.
I understand the reasons behind his keeping a distance from a girl he cares about. Because the truth is, sometimes getting close to the fire does actually burn you.
What would it take for you to go out with me?
Alex kneels down to Shelley's level. The simple act of respect tears at something suspiciously like my heart. Colin always ignores my sister, treating her as if she's blind and deaf as well as physically and mentally disabled.
It'll be impossible to protect Brittany for the rest of her life from all the other guys who want to be near her, to see her as I've seen her. Touch her as I've touch her. Man, I never want to let her go.
From the moment I told her about my dad, it was as if her whole body sighed in relief. As if someone else's misery comforted her, made her feel as if she wasn't alone.
Somehow, being with Brittany brings something to my life that's missing, something ... right.
I want to know how to make this girl laugh. I want to know what makes her cry. I want to know what it feels like to have her look at me as if I'm her knight in shinning armor.
Whether it's right or wrong, fight for what you believe in.
Alex took a piece of my heart with him when he left.
I've spent so much time avoiding arguments and smoothing relationships with the people around me, this confrontation is painful.
He has eyes so expressive they give a hint to more than what he portrays. He's dedicated to his friends, family, and even his motorcyle. He touched me as if I were made of glass. He kissed me as if he'd savor it for the rest of his life.
Something is happening. I sense a change in the wind…a mutual understanding of each other. I haven't felt this way in forever.
I want to tell her how much she's become the center of my being. But I can't. The words won't come.
You are the one girl that made me risk eveything for a future worth having.
And for those of you who want to start any trouble, I have a zero tolerance policy. . . .
Just the fact that you need me to prove I love you is probably a clue it isn't working
Holy shit! Where's a cell phone camera when you need one?
Sometimes I wish there were do over years or fast forward days
I wish my life was a John Grisham novel. His heroes always seem to be one step away from death but come up with a brilliant plan. Unfortunately, real life can't be wrapped up with a nice little bow
You're so critical. Oh, God, I'd do anything for you to stop blaming me for every little thing that goes wrong. Love me for who I am. Love Shelley for who she is. Stop focusing on the bad stuff because life is just too damn short.
Before i was jumped in i remember Lucky telling us how being in a gang was like having a second family... a family who would be there when your own family wasn't. They would offer protection and security. It sounded perfect to a kid who'd lost his father.
One of the things that makes me who I am is the loyalty I have to people I hold close to my heart.
How funny it is that the most unlikely person sometimes becomes your ally.
Stop focusing on the bad stuff because life is too damn short.
