I don’t know what to tell you, Perry. Life’s hard. Love’s harder
Why does ice cream go with a broken heart?” Kylie asked. “Because if you eat enough of it, it freezes the heart and numbs the pain for a bit.
Holiday’s eyes pooled with tears. And that pretty much made it a cry fest. Even Della joined in the tear party. Right then, Burnett walked in the office. His gaze went from one female to the other. Kylie could almost hear him groaning inwardly. “I…I’ll be…right out there.” Obviously even a hard-bodied vampire trained by the FRU wasn’t capable of dealing with four crying women.
I became blinded by what I thought I needed to do. I was wrong. I was stupid. But not for one minute did I ever stop loving you. And that’s why I deserve to be forgiven.
She leaned into him to soak up his warmth. “You are so hot,” she said. “It’s about time you noticed,” he teased.
Maybe I’m a supernatural retard.
But you are making assumptions without all the facts, and that’s not a sign of intelligence.
I think he likes you” Miranda Whispered. Realizing she and Derek had drawn attention, she glanced away. “He’s probably just curious about me like everyone else” she whispered back. “Nope. He’s hot for you” Della said, reminding Kylie of the supernatural hearing of some of the campers. “When he was sitting by you at lunch, he oozed so much testosterone that it was hard to breathe. He wants your body” Della teased. “Well, he’s not getting it” Kylie said.
Take some very deep breaths,” Miranda said. “Relax. Concentrate. Then envision a frosty six-pack and wiggle your pinky.” A frosty six-pack. Kylie inhaled. He held out her pinky, and right then Della chimed in. “We are talking a six=pack of soda, not a cold guy with good-looking abs, right?” There was a strange kind of sizzle in the air. And suddenly appearing in front of the refrigerator was a shirtless, shivering guy with great abs. His blue eyes studied the three of them in complete bafflement. “What the…!” he muttered. Kylie gasped. Miranda giggled. Della snorted with laughter.
My feet are always cold. I’m a vampire,” he said in a teasing voice, almost as if he was trying to chase away Holiday’s somberness. “And if I remember correctly, you complained about that last night.” He slowed down and slipped his arm around Holiday. “Marrying you doesn’t scare me a bit. It’s the best thing that could ever happen to me. I’d never run out on you. I’ll be the first one to the church.
She cut her eyes to the woods and whispered, “We’re not alone, remember?” “I don’t care who hears it. I love you!” His voice rose louder this time. She frowned. “Nothing’s changed.” “Everything has changed,” he said.
I’m in love with you, Kylie.” He looked almost embarrassed by the admission. He jumped up, took one step away, then swung around and faced her again. “I don’t expect you to say it back and I don’t think this will change your mind about anything. But you deserved to know. And I needed to tell you because…..I’ve never felt this way before-for anyone.
She remembered when they were kids and he’d caught the rock that the bullies had thrown at her. At six, she’d considered him a hero. At sixteen, she considered him a heartbreaker.
Thanks, but that’s not going to fix anything. It’s like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound.
You couldn’t always control life, just your response to it.
I mean . . . who was it that said if the door is locked, find a window. If the windows locked, well . . . break it. If it won’t break then find a freaking sledgehammer and make a new one.
Couldn’t I just be a bit loony instead of gifted?
Boy trouble, huh?” “Boy catastrophe is more like it. I’m not sure I can do this.” “Do what?” Concern sounded in Holiday’s voice. “Do Lucas,” Kylie said. Holiday made a funny face and raised one eyebrow.
Have you been smoking something? Seriously, I think you’re a werewolf. This new snarky attitude is a dead giveaway.” “And vampires aren’t snarky?” Kylie rolled her eyes. “No, we’re pissy. Snarky and pissy are two totally different things.
Life’s hard, Love’s harder.
When we care about people, we sometimes overstep our grounds.
Not everyone in the world is alike. And some of us are a lot more different than others. Some of us were born like this, some of us were changed. But no matter how this happened to you, if you are here it is because this is your destiny. It was chosen for you.
Being committed or loyal to someone doesn’t mean you won’t ever be attracted to someone else. It means you won’t physically act upon the attraction.
When he didn’t answer, she didn’t know if it was because he couldn’t or if he was back to not talking to her. Back to pushing her out of his life. Men! Why was it that boys said girls were so hard to understand, when she hadn’t known a single guy who hadn’t confused her to the point of screaming?
What was that, Kylie? Just a thank-you for saving your life.. or was it more?
