1. "So, who is it?" Stella is persisting, somewhat suspiciously. "What's his name?"But if I don't tell her the truth, what do I say? My mind draws a blank.

All that's left is an absence that's like a hollow space."
Author: Haruki Murakami

Tiny bits of shiny, secret excitement."

17. "I was completely unprepared. You would think that after all the hours I'd spent with Gale —watching him talk and laugh and frown— that I would know all there was to know about his lips. But I hadn't imagined how warm they would feel pressed against my own. Or how those hands, which could set the most intricate of snares, could as easily entrap me.

And he was gone."

Author: Violette Leduc

"Another favorite position of his was sitting with his back to me, his rear half resting on the floor of the boat and his front half on the bench, his face buried into the stern, paws right next to his head, looking as if we were playing hide-and-seek and he were the one counting. In this position he tended to lie very still, with only the occasional twitching of his ears to indicate that he is not necessarily sleeping."
