“When you love someone, its never over. You move on, because you have to but you take them with you in your heart”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
tags: love
“When you love someone, it's never over,' Dr. Carruthers replied gently. 'You move on, because you have to, but you bring him in your heart.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“I had discovered that there was something more painful than falling in love with someone who hasn't fallen for you; hurting that person-hurting him and not being able to do anything about it.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“This isn't a game for me. I love you, Ivy, and one day you're going to believe me.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“I wouldn't have been sent back to help you," Tristan continued. "I wouldn't have been made an angel if it weren't important that you live, Ivy. I want you to be mine" -Ivy could hear the pain in his voice- "but you're not."

"I am!" she cried out loud.

"We're on different sides of a river," he said, "and it's a river that neither of us can cross. You were meant for somebody else.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“I love you, Ivy. I'll never stop loving you."

She leaned against the winsow, looking out on a pale and glittering night. She looked through tears.

I prayed for one more chance to reach you," he said, "to tell you how much I love you and to tell you to keep on loving. Someone else was meant for you, Ivy, and you were meant for someone else."

She stood up straight. "No."

Yes, love," he said, softly but firmly.

No!"

Promise me, Ivy-"

I'll promise you nothing but that I love you," she cried.

Listen to me," Tristan pleaded. "You know I can't stay any longer."

The pale, glittering night was raining now, and fresh tears gleamed on her cheeks, but he had to leave.

I love you," he said. "I love you. Love him.

- Tristan Carruthers -”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“How would you feel about sharing your bed?" she asked.
Tristan blinked. "Excuse me?"
"He'd love to!" Gary said.
Tristan shot him a look,
"Good," said Ivy, failing to notice Gary's wink. "Ella can be a pillow hog, but all you have to do is roll over her.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“Are you lost?"

I turned around. "Excuse me?"

Two guys were sprawled on a bench close to the sidewalk. The one who had spoken wore tattered shorts and a colonial three-cornered hat-nothing else. He had wide shoulders and long, muscular legs. He stretched dramatically, then lay his tanned arm along the back of the bench. "You look lost," he said. "Can I help you find something?"

"Uh, no, thanks. I was just looking."

He grinned. "Me too."

"Oh?" I glanced around, thinking I'd missed something. "At what?"
He and his friend burst out laughing.
Way to go, Lauren, I thought. He had been looking at me!
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“When a writer looked at an empty computer screen, what did she see? Tristan wondered. A movie screen ready to be lit with faces? A night sky with one small star blinking at the top, a universe ready to be written on? Endless possibilities. Love's endless twists and turns - and all love's impossibilities.”
Elizabeth Chandler, The Power of Love
“Do you know what it was like kissing Holly and looking up to see you?"

"What?"

"You said to begin anywhere."

But I hadn't expected that as a beginning, middle or end. I felt my cheeks getting warm. "I guess it was pretty embarrassing for both of us," I said, and walked ahead of him so he wouldn't see my face. "I know, I just kept staring at you."

"What were you thinking?"

"I don't remember."

"Don't you start using that line," he chided.

"Then don't ask me, Nick." Did he suspect how I felt.
He caught me and turned me around to face him. I focused on his shirt.

"Okay," he said quietly, "I'll tell you what I was thinking. I couldn't believe that I, who was never going to get hooked, had fallen in love with a girl who didn't want to date, and she was watching me kiss somebody else."

I glanced up.

"Your turn, brave girl. What were you thinking?"

"That Holly looked beautiful in your arms and that you didn't pull away from her the way you had pulled away from me when I kissed you."

He drew me to him. "I'm not pulling away again," he said holding me close.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“Good dog," Nick said. "That's one of the tricks I've taught him, shaking water on girls so they back into my arms."

"Really! How smart of Rocky - and you, of course."

"That's another thing I've been wanting to tell you," he said, turning me to face him. "I'm tired of getting jealous of my dog. I mean, he has nice eyes, but so do I."

I looked from Rocky's golden eyes to Nick's laughing green ones.

"I didn't enjoy the way Rocky got to stick close to you while I played Holly's boyfriend. He's going to have some competition from now on."

"Oh, yeah? Are you good at retrieving sticks?"

"I'm good at stealing kisses," Nick said, then proved it.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“The problem for me is that I can't ever really see who Gregory is, any more than I can see what a mirror by itself looks like, because he reflects whoever's around him.”
Elizabeth Chandler
“Everyday, every hour, I have held you close in my heart.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Evercrossed

“You fell in love with me?”

“Hey, does my stupidity give you the right to bruise a tender heart?"

"Yeah, yeah. I'm bruising a heart made of Play-Doh.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“I stopped walking and wrapped my arms tightly around him. "You know I can hear your heart."

"Could you hear it breaking when I accused you of getting my cartoon pulled?" he asked.

I held my head back so I could look him directly in the eye. "I didn't pull it."

"You couldn't have," he replied, "because I did.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Legacy of Lies & Don't Tell
“...you canʹt
always choose how you love a person. Love isnʹt logical or
fair. It just happens.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Evercrossed

“I felt mocked. "That's what I get for trusting you."

He took a step back. "Excuse me! Trust doesn't mean you get the response you want from someone, but that you'll get an honest response, and that the other person will stick by you even when you can't agree."

Stick by you for how long, through how much? I wondered. What is the expiration date on trust?



Elizabeth Chandler, The Deep End of Fear
“This isn't some kind of game for me. I love you, Ivy Lyons, and one day you're going to believe me.

- Tristan Carruthers -”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“Who's that little brunette?" Suzanne asked. "I hate little petite types. Gregory doesn't look right with someone petite. Little face, little hands, little dainty feet."
"Big boobs," Beth said, glancing up.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“I glanced up at him. "I love things that are beautiful when you don't expect them to be.”
Elizabeth Chandler, The Back Door of Midnight
“Quick, how do you pick up a cat?"
"Buy her a drink.”
Elizabeth Chandler
“So what don't you get?"
"The way people talk and act like they're crazy in love, and then, ding, suddenly they're
not. It's like it was all just pretend. Like it's just a game."
He crunched on an ice cube. "Well, sometimes it is just a game."
"Then how are you supposed to believe someone when it isn't?”
Elizabeth Chandler, Love at First Click
“Fix yourself something to drink," she said. "I don't have any Mr. Pepper."
"You mean Dr. Pepper?"
"For the love of God!" She exploded. "People expect everything from a psychic! 'Doctor,' 'mister,' I was close enough. I didn't call it 'Mrs. Salt,' did I?”
Elizabeth Chandler, The Back Door of Midnight
“Sometimes I think that love is one big fairy tale. I wonder if people who say they are in love, if – really – they’ve just talked themselves into it. They want it so badly, they kind of make it happen. They fake it until they start believing their own story. Maybe that’s just sour grapes or something. Maybe because it doesn’t happen to me, I don’t want to think it happens to anyone else.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Summer in the City
“Love can fuel hate.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Evercrossed
“Her joy with him was like nothing she had ever experienced. His love for her felt like a miracle.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Evercrossed
“i love you Ivy. I'll never stop loving you."
"I prayed for one more chance to reach you," he said, "to tell you how much I love you and to tell you to keep on loving. Someone else was meant for you,Ivy, and you were meant for someone else.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Kissed by an Angel
“Change can be good. It just depends on what we make of it.”
Elizabeth Chandler, Summer in the City
“I'll never stop wanting to kiss you," he whispered.”
