Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story (Will Grayson, Will Grayson #2) To Tame a Highland Warrior (Highlander #2)

I just hope my skills design a better crib than a raft.

I shook my head, my thoughts whirling, and Blythe crossed her arms over her chest. Your powers meant you could never hurt the Oracle, only protect him. If you can’t protect him anymore, it’s because he’s become such a danger that he has to be dealt with, Harper. I wasn’t sure of it until today, but seeing him in the cave? Your powers going out for good? Those things are connected.You don’t know that— I started, even though everything she was saying made a terrible kind of sense.

Stefans Diaries: The Craving (The Vampire Diaries #3)

And she knew it, too, because she lifted her hand to cut me off. You and I, we do what needs to be done, Harper. It’s who we are. Did you know that back before all this happened to me, I was SGA president at my school, too? We didn’t have cheerleaders, but I was first-chair flute in the school symphony, and I was on just about every committee there was. Prom, Students Against Drunk Driving, the Big Sisters program . . . She ticked them off on her fingers. And commitment like that is what makes both of us so good at this stuff. It’s why we were chosen.I shook my head, not wanting to have anything in common with her right now. No, I said. Those powers . . . they were forced on me, and I’m guessing they were forced on you, too.She just shrugged in that way she did, tilting her head to the other side. Forced, fated . . . all works out the same. Point is, we’re the type of girls who do what they have to do, and stopping David is what I have to do. You know what Alaric turned into. And now we know that not only is David following in his exact footsteps, they’re also the only two Oracles ever born to Oracles. That means David is more powerful than any of us thought. More dangerous.

If You Deceive (MacCarrick Brothers #3)

Once again, her voice was so even and calm, her face almost eerily placid, that I felt like I was the one who was nuts. Still, I heard myself say, This isn’t what you have to do.Of course it is. I told you, she said slowly and patiently, the way you talk to really little kids or people who speak a different language. I’m. Redeeming. Myself.

My shoes dangled from my fingertips, and one dropped to the concrete with a muted thwack. But this isn’t redeeming yourself, I argued. Redeeming means . . . it means fixing what you did wrong, not stabbing what you did wrong in the face. Okay, wait, that didn’t come out right, but you know what I mean.

I pointed one sandal at her, and Blythe finally got to her feet, swatting my shoe out of her face. Harper, this is how we fix this, don’t you get that? What do you think all this journeying around has been about?This part was relatively easy compared to what I was about to do, which was scary as shit but equally epic. Locating the carabiner, I pulled the handle to my chest and clipped it to the corresponding hook on my harness.

If this doesn’t work, it’s going to really fucking suck, I muttered to myself. I was locked in, hooked onto the cord that connected to the back of a ship currently going about thirty knots. What could possibly go wrong?Before my brain could go through the hundreds of things that could go wrong—which all included me breaking ankles, legs, a neck—I said a fervent prayer and then pulled the cord for my chute.

Sea Glass (Glass #2)

A rustle of fabric grew to a roar, and I became the center of a tug-of-war between the Athena and my chute. Every muscle in my body strained to stay upright as the chute deployed.Don’t hit the water. Don’t hit the water, I begged silently. If my chute took on water, I was fucked. And most likely dead unless I could unsnap fast enough.

I jolted upward as the chute snapped behind me, and air rushed from my lungs in relief. I was airborne. Looking down toward the boat, I saw Pax cheering me on, jumping so high I almost thought he’d go overboard.Fuck yes! I yelled, my arms up in victory.

That was the only moment I gave myself before locating the handles of the parasail as I rose higher, climbing above the height of the Athena. A crowd had gathered near the landing site, and I hoped they’d watch as I set this baby down on the deck—instead of seeing a bloody mess in the propellers below.For the second time during the stunt, I laughed. Now I was parasailing behind a fucking cruise ship. Unbelievable.

A minute later, with two of the Renegades manning the winch, I started to descend toward the deck. Rachel had been right—her setup was flawless.With nothing to do but watch as they reeled me in, I scanned the crowd, looking for her familiar frame, which finally came into focus when I was about thirty feet from the deck.
