"I wish you were here to find me, smile, drag me out dancing, soft smile sliding out the syllables of my name in reproach, except, maybe you don’t go out dancing? that’s okay by me, i could be all dressed up and we could sit in your room and talk about art and smile shyly at each other and wonder how we will ever cross that divide to the first kiss. Maybe it’d be nice to cross that huge divide. I like the idea that you’d be there, on the other side of it, waiting for me."
"I look at you, and I just love you, and it terrifies me. It terrifies me what I would do for you."
Liam Stewart (Alexandra Bracken, Never Fade)
"Most girls say they want a fairy tale, but that’s not what I want. I want someone who will make fun of me and laugh at my jokes even if they’re stupid. Someone who will wrestle with me and not let me win because I’m a girl. Yeah, riding off into the sunset would be nice, but playing thumb war with you seems so much better."
