Quotes About Through The Storm

"I pushed her shiny blond hair away from her face and leaned down, our faces only inches apart. She inhaled softly, our lips so close I could feel her breath and the scent of her skin, like honeysuckle in springtime. She smelled like sweet tea and old books, like she had always been here.I pulled my fingers through her hair and held it at the back of her neck. Her skin was soft and warm, like a Mortal girls. There was no electric current, no shocks. We could kiss for as long as we wanted. If we had a fight, there wouldnt be a flood or a hurricane, or even a storm. I wouldnt find her on the ceiling of her bedroom. No windows would shatter. No exams would catch fire.Liv held up her face to be kissed.She wanted me." - Author: Kami Garcia

Quotes About Siege

"Desolate city. Snow on the streets. Fire in the sky.It could have been one of a hundred wars.But there-The place on the street where the snow had melted. The dark crater in the sea of white.Daniel sank to his knees and reached for the ring of black ash stained on the ground.He closed his eyes.And he remembered the precise way she had died in his arms.Moscow.1941.So this was what she was doing-tunneling into her past lives. Hoping to understand.The thing was,there was no rhyme or reason to her deaths.More than anyone, Daniel knew that.But there were certain lifetimes when hed tried to shed some light for her,hoping it would change things. Sometimes hed hoped to keep her alive longer,though that never really worked. Sometimes-like this time during the siege of Moscow-hed chosen to send her on her way more quickly.To spare her.So that his kiss could be the last thing she felt in that lifetime." - Author: Lauren Kate

Quotes About Vampire Bats
