Hate Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #5) The Treasured One (The Dreamers #2)

Ben will be better off without me. No matter how much it hurts inside, Im getting out of his life before I do any more damage.

Id drawn him as he was in the classroom, standing defiant under his sketch of Phoebe, and so it is a drawing within a drawing. Phoebe is his Phoebe, the lonely girl I never knew.Mums face is so sad as she looks at Gianelli. I have just enough presence of mind to scoop the other drawings together before she sees the one I drew of Robert and Cassie. She touches Gianellis face. What did you do? she whispers to the drawing. She turns to me. Were on our own now; this is just between us. What happened to Gianelli? You do know, I can see you do. Your face is so transparent. You need to learn to hide things, like the rest of us. But please tell me.

Casino Royale (James Bond #1)

So I do: about Phoebes robin, and what Gianelli said. That we stood in silence, then he drew her as I had done.Stupid, dear man. To think things have got so bad, theyd take him just for that, she says. Now listen to me, Kyla. I know, believe me I do, how upsetting all this is to you. How hard to understand. But you must learn to hide things away, inside. Or you wont last. I dont want you taken away. Promise me that you will try?So I promise. What else can I do? I mean it as I say the words.

The Souls Mark: BROKEN (The Souls Mark #3)

Im going to destroy this, she says, and holds up the sketch of Gianelli. Are there others like it? She turns her eyes to the pile of drawings. But if she sees Roberts face, what will she do? As between us as she says this is, Im unsure how shed feel about Mac.Let me see, she demands, and reaches her hands towards them.

But then there are footsteps on the stairs; heavy steps, coming down from above. She shoves Gianelli and the other drawings together under my blankets. The door opens.

Dad smiles. Is everything all right in here?The ball Mina referred to had been actually very Cinderella-esque, as was much of her life, apparently. King Everts predecessor, his cousin Elliot Strinne, had died rather suddenly with no wife or immediate heirs. This had led to a heated exchange among the royalty, with some lobbying for Elliots young niece to take the throne, before the Chancellor finally decided that the then-twenty-three-year-old Evert would be more suited to rule the kingdom than a child.

After Evert had been King for ten years and still had no bride and no heirs, the leaders had begun to worry. They didnt want to put the kingdom in turmoil, the way it had been after Elliots death. So they set up a ball where the eligible women were to come to meet the King, and thats how Mina met Evert.That night was like a fairy tale. Mina smiled and touched her husbands shoulder. The instant I laid eyes on him, I was in love. Luckily for me, he felt the same way. Four short months later, we were wed. Every day since then has been the happiest day of my life, and I can only hope that the next five years of marriage will be just as magical as the first.

Autumn Bones (Agent of Hel #2)

She beamed down at King Evert, giving him a look so sweet and adoring that it was almost uncomfortable to watch. And then, quietly, almost too quietly for us to hear, she said, I am so grateful for you, my love.Since that seemed to be the end of her speech, the crowd applauded warmly for her, and she offered us all a wide smile before sitting back down next to her husband.

Shes lying, Ridley said as he clapped halfheartedly for her. She doesnt love him.Why do you say that? Ember asked.

He shook his head and went back to spooning the now-freezing-cold stew. Nobody loves anybody that much.And here you were going on and on about true love last night, I said, surprised by the bitter edge of my own words.

Was I? He lifted his head, resting his eye on me, and I quickly turned back toward my own stew. I remember saying something about settling down, but nothing about true love.Same thing, I mumbled.
