I can feel what you're feeling now - and you are worth it.
Just because I'm resisting the wine doesn't mean I can't appreciate the bouquet.
Alice is the most… supportive.
I said it would be better if we weren't friends, not that I didn't want to be.
The right thing isn't always real obvious. Sometimes the right thing for one person is the wrong thing for someone else. So...good luck figuring that out.
Even more, I had never meant to love him. One thing I truly knew - knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest - was how love gave someone the power to break you
It must be a hard thing, to be a father; living in fear that your daughter would meet a boy she liked, but also having to worry if she didn't.
Your number was up the first time I met you.
I can't be sure, of course, but I'd compare it to living on tofu and soy milk; we call ourselves vegetarians, our little inside joke. - Edward Cullen
Kryptonite doesn't bother me, either.
And then as you were sleeping, you said my name. You spoke so clearly, at first I thought you'd woken. But you rolled over restlessly and mumbled my name once more, and sighed. The feeling that coursed through me then was unnerving, staggering. And I knew I couldn't ignore you any longer.
I stared because their faces, so different, so similar, were all devastatingly, inhumanly beautiful.
The sun was hot on my skin, too bright as it bounced off the white concrete and blinded me. I felt dangerously exposed. More fiercely than I would have dreamed I was capable of, I wished for the green, protective forest of Forks . . . of home.
For some reason, my temper was hardwired to my tear ducts. I usually cried when I was angry, a humiliating tendency.
It sounded like you were having Bella for lunch, and we came to see if you would share
You're intoxicated by my very presence.
I decided as long as I'm going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly.
Making decisions was the painful part for me, the part I agonized over. But once the decision was made, I simply followed through-usually with relief that the choice was made. Sometimes the relief was tainted by despair, like my decision to come to Forks. But it was still better than wrestling with the alternatives.
And then, as the room went black, I was suddenly hyperaware that Edward was sitting less than an inch from me. I was stunned by the unexpected electricity that flowed through me, amazed that it was possible to be more aware of him than I already was. A crazy impulse to reach over and touch him, to stroke his perfect face just once in the darkness, nearly overwhelmed me. I crossed my arms tightly across my chest, my hands balling into fists. I was losing my mind.
I was consumed by the mystery Edward presented. And more than a little obsessed by Edward himself. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I wasn't as eager to escape Forks as I should be, as any normal, sane person would be.
The wasting of finite resources is everyones business
Forks was literally my personal hell on Earth.
It was a strange combination to absorb - the everyday concerns of the town doctor stuck in the middle of a discussion of his early days in seventeenth-century London.
You're not like anyone I've ever known. You fascinate me.
I don't like to lie - so there'd better be a good reason why I'm doing it.
No one could be still like Edward.
Are you still faint from the run? Or was it my kissing expertise?
I was thinking about how disjointedly time seemed to flow in Forks, passing in a blur at times, with single images standing out more clearly than others. And then, at other times, every second was significant, etched in my mind. I knew exactly what caused the difference, and it disturbed me.
What is she to me? Except a menace - a danger you've chosen to inflict on all of us.
Hasn't anyone ever told you? Life isn't fair.
