1. "Dollars to doughnuts there's no fruit dip," he murmured behind me.Would Mo do that to me not five minutes after I asked her not to push me at anything?Fucking A. Of course she would. I was the fruit dip, apparently.I backed out of the fridge, hanging my head with a sigh. "For Mo, that was extremely subtle.""She's got a gift." Jace leaned against the counter beside the fridge and crossed his arms over his chest, looking me over. "How are you, Topher?""Good. Good. Fine. How have you been?" I retreated a few paces, mirroring his posture against the island chopping block opposite him."I've been good. Really good, in fact, though I'm wondering if you would rather I weren't here.""What?" I blinked rapidly. "Why would I— Why would you think that?"The corner of his mouth quirked up in a wry smile.

3. "Three years of changes, moves, uncertainties, upheavals; the war, the revolution; scenes of destruction, scenes of death, shelling, blown-up bridges, fires, ruins—all this turned suddenly into a huge, empty, waste space.

This was the point of life, this was experience, this was the quest of adventure seekers and what artists had in mind—this coming home to your family, to yourself, this renewal of life."

7. "How does she do it? She makes it sound like she is so cut up to be giving them this information, and it's all just bumph out of her head. She never told them ANYTHING. I don't think she's given them the right name of any airfield in Britain except Mainsend and Buscot, which of course were where she was stationed. They could have easily checked.

It makes me think of the first day I met her, giving those directions in German. So cool and crisp, such authority--suddenly she really was a radio operator, a German radio operator, she was so good at faking it. Or when I told her to be Jamie, how she just suddenly turned into Jamie.This confession of hers is rotten with error..."

My body rose from its slump for the first time since the beginning of sorrows—my fingers beckoning to the stars at arm's length, back arching as tingles bubbled up my spine, hips caught in a silent tempo while on tiptoe I twirled in endless euphoric circles.

For I was wanted by the gods last night; their seraphs and muses descending on moonbeams into my midst, caressing my face and gliding their spirited arms about my waist, lifting my toes from the soil that I might feel what it is to fly without heaviness of heart. I danced with them under the glow of a loyal moon. For one brief, visceral dance I joyed as Heaven joys—in endless bliss.And the universe cherished me."
