Courting Darkness (Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon #10) The Rogue Hunter (Argeneau #10)

I’m sorry, Harry said.

―I‘m not," he replied. ―I am merely sitting here while my ears are assaulted."―How do you put up with him?" Sebastian murmured.

Zip, Zero, Zilch (The Reed Brothers #6)

Olivia grit her teeth. ―There are benefits," she ground out.Although Sebastian rather thought Harry might not be getting any benefits that evening.―So there it is," Sebastian said to Olivia. ―I forgive her. She should have said something, but I understand why she did not, and I rather suspect that any one of us would have done the same."

And With Madness Comes the Light (Experiment in Terror #0)

There was a pause, and then Olivia said, ―That is very generous of you."He shrugged. ―It‘s not good for the constitution to carry a grudge. Just look at Newbury. He‘d not be nearly so fat and florid if he didn‘t hate me so much." He turned back to his breakfast, wondering what Olivia might make of that little leap of logic.

She waited approximately ten seconds before continuing on. ―I am relieved to hear that you do not harbor her any ill will. As I said, she is in need of your help. After your little scene at White‘s—"

―What?" Sebastian snapped, barely resisting the urge to slam his hand on the table. ―Hold this minute. It was not my scene at all. If you wish to take someone to task, go find my uncle."Until I am twenty-three, I may come back to visit occasionally. After that, I may return to live on the island full-time, or I may remain in The Hearthlands. I can’t say for certain. I should also tell you that you’re the first person I’ve told. I planned to wait until next year before telling my friends… You seem upset, he remarked.

No, not upset! I, uh, just had no idea. His words were still sinking in. I thought back over all the times I’d pined for him over the last year. My thoughts and hopes regarding him. My fantasies… But spurred by Heath’s confession, I felt an unexpected surge of confidence. Like I could tell him anything now. Like I no longer had to feel awkward around him.I’m going to be totally honest with you, I said. I’ve had an embarrassingly huge crush on you for, like, at least a year.

I, Robot (Robot #0.1)

Heath chuckled, then nodded. Yeah, I know. Benedict has made it hard for anyone under the age of twenty on this island to not know. He’d make a great newscaster.I smiled more broadly, feeling rather touched that Heath had chosen to tell me first of all people. I appreciated the gesture.

Before either of us could say anything more, my great-grandfather Aiden strolled into the galley and began helping himself to some juice. Heath and I took that as our cue to leave.As we returned to our seats, I wasn’t sure if I would ever fully stop crushing on Heath. It was hard to not admire a man so fine. But I wasn’t stupid enough to not read the hint he was giving me: move on. Get on with my life. Find someone else.

Stop being a lovesick puppy.I felt strangely liberated throughout the rest of the journey. We spent it talking animatedly. Even Arwen and Brock broke their vow to ignore us and gazed at us over their seats. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Heath—the person beneath his intimidating, breathtaking exterior. He had a sharp sense of humor and struck me as an intelligent, collected person who thought much about the world and his future in it. I hoped that, even if we’d never be more than friends, this could be a friendship that would last.

We descended in the field bordering the township and touched down. As the hatch opened and we piled out, I already knew something was wrong.Where the gaping circular hole in the ground had been was simply a circle of dirt.
