Phantoms Going Long (Waiting on the Sidelines #2)

She’s at the market, so hide your car around back and get her really good.

Let’s give her some time to catch up, her doctor tells me. Her brain is adjusting. We don’t want to overload her.So, I tell her about Washington. The deepness of the Sound, the rolling hills in Seattle that burn the hell out of your glutes when you walk up them. I describe the champagne bar that serves you strawberries coated in rhinestone sugar. I tell her about the homeless guy who gave me a cigarette and complimented my imaginary socks. And what it feels like to stand on the top deck of the ferry with the silvery air licking your face and neck until you close your eyes at the intimacy of it. When I am done telling her, there are tears in her eyes, and she reaches up to touch my cheek with her pale hand.

Melting the Ice (Play by Play #7)

I’m so glad you’re so brave, she says. I wish we all could be that brave. I look away, tears in my own eyes. Brave, I am not. And then she says something that makes me lose it.You remind me so much of Kit, Helena.I stand up, excusing myself to the restroom. When I turn around, Kit is in the doorway watching me. I never heard him come in. I wonder how much he heard, and then I don’t have to wonder because as I walk past him he grabs my hand and squeezes.

Kick the Candle (Knight Games #2)

It’s soon after that when she remembers we aren’t on the best terms. It comes when Kit and her doctor tell her about Annie, and the emergency hysterectomy. I stand against a wall in the back of the room, my head down and my hands clasped at my waist. I’ve never felt so exposed, or hated myself as much. I feel her eyes move past the doctor and Kit and focus on me. I’ve been holding her baby, feeding her baby, loving on her baby while she wastes away in this hospital room. All that’s left to come is her resentment. But I’m ready for it, and I don’t blame her.Where is my baby? she asks, tears in her voice.

They’re bringing her now, Kit says gently. She starts to sob, and I mean really sob. I can’t take it. I leave the room and run downstairs. In the lobby, I all but collide with Della’s mom, who is carrying Annie toward the elevator. Annie smiles instantly when she sees me and starts kicking her legs. I can’t deal with this right now. I give her mom a weak smile and head in the opposite direction. It hurts. I want to hold her. She’s my Annie. She’s not my Annie.

Kit comes home around ten o’clock. He doesn’t have the baby with him.Hmmm, I say, grinning. What ever will we do?

He jumps down from his perch. Go for a walk, he says.I look back toward their room. Okay. Should we leave a note?

The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies #3)

Did she take her sleeping pill?She’ll be out ‘til morning then.

I follow him out the door and down the drive. I try to predict which way he’ll turn down the street, and I get it wrong. The air smells slightly of the ocean, and gasoline from the highway. It’s the smell of escape and freedom. I wonder if Kit notices, and if it makes him want to jump in his truck and drive, drive, drive away from perfection.Kit, I say. Are you in love?

He grimaces. Why do you ask me that every time we go on a walk?Why do you never answer the question?

It’s uncomfortable, he says. And none of your business.I laugh. Fair enough, Kit Kat.
