“A man in love can do extraordinary things, I don’t care if you’re an angel, you’re my angel, and I won’t let you go.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
tags: love
“One of the most frustrating words in the human language, as far as I could tell, was love.
So much meaning attached to this one little word. People bandied it about freely, using it to
describe their attachments to possessions, pets, vacation destinations, and favorite foods. In the
same breath they then applied this word to the person they considered most important in their
lives. Wasn’t that insulting? Shouldn’t there be some other term to describe deeper emotion?”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“I thought you were gone forever, I thought you’d walked away from everything, because I failed, because I destroyed the only thing that ever mattered to me. I waited for you to come, but you didn’t.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“That was one of the saddest things about people--their most important thoughts and feelings often went unspoken and barely understood.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Did I mention I've finally decided on a nickname for you?"
"I didn't know you were looking."
Well, I've given the matter some serious thought."
"And what have you come up with?"
"Cookie," I anounced proudly.
Xavier scrunched up his face. "No way."
"You don't like it? What about Bumblebee?"
"Worse."
"Snookie-Wookie?"
"Do you have any cyanide?"
"Well, some of us are just a bit hard to please.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

“Love you,” Xavier said just before he drifted back to sleep.
“Love you more,” I said playfully.
“Not a chance,” Xavier said, fully awake now. “I’m bigger, I can contain more love.”
“I’m smaller, therefore my love particles are more compressed, which means I can fit more in.”
Xavier laughed. “That argument makes no sense. Overruled.”
“I’m just basing it on how much I miss you when you’re not around,” I countered.
“How can you possibly know how much I miss you?” he said. “Have you got some sort of built-in miss-o-meter that can give us a reading?”
“I’m a girl; of course I have a built-in miss-o-meter.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Sometimes it's the little things that count most.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Molly: So how do you think of Bryce Hamilton crowd so far? Boys hot enough for you?
Bethany: I wouldn't say hot. Most of them seem to have a normal body temperature.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Some say we can't choose who we fall in love with; love chooses us. Sometimes people fall for the complete antithesis of everything they believe they're looking for.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“When's your birthday?"
I was taken aback by the question. "I don't like presents,"I said quickly, in case he got any ideas. "Who said anything about presents? I'm just asking for your date of birth."
"Thirtieth of February," I said, throwing out the first date that came to mind.
Xavier raised an eyebrow.
"Are you sure about that?"
I panicked. What had I said wrong? I ran through the months in my head and realised my mistake. OOPS--there were only twenty-eight days in February! "I mean thirtieth of April," I corrected and grinned sheepishly.
Xavier laughed. "You're the first person I've ever known to forget her own birthday.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“She had the face of an angel
I saw mirrors in her eyes
We were the same, she and I
Both bound by potent lies.

In him I saw my future
In him I saw my friend
In him I saw my destiny
Both my beginning and my end.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“I prayed for all his dreams to come true. I prayed that I would always be able to connect with him--even if I was no longer on earth.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Be quiet or I'll be forced to flick you."
"Ooh," he mocked. "The ultimate threat. I don't think I've ever been flicked before."
"Are you suggesting I can't hurt you?"
"On the contrary, I think you have the power to do great damage.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Sit, Phantom!" Ivy cooed. "On your bottom!"

"Oh, for goodness' sake!" Gabriel put down his book and pointed a longer finger at Phantom. "Sit," he commanded in a deep voice. Phantom looked sheepish and sank straight to the floor.

Ivy scowled in frustration. "I've been trying to get him to do that all day! What is it with dogs and male authority?”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

Xavier: "I think you mean irresistible."
Beth: "Yes, ridiculously irresistible.”

“If you're worried about safety, you might like to follow my example and put on that seat belt."
"The what?"
Xavier shook his head in disbelief.
"You worry me," he muttered.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“I was so worried that you wouldn’t want to know me once you found out.” I signed, relief flooding through me.
“Are you kidding me?” Xavier reached out and curled a lock of my hair around his finger. “Surely I’ve got to be the luckiest guy in the world.”
“How do you figure that?”
“Isn’t it obvious? I’ve got my own little piece of Heaven right here.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Without complexity, there's no intensity.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Oh, man," Xavier groaned. "See what you've done--now I'm stressing."
"You can't! You're the stable one!"
Xavier laughed and I realized his distress had been feigned to illustrate a point. He wasn't worried in the slightest.
"Just relax. Go and run a bath or have a shot of brandy."
"Okay."
"That second bit was a joke. We both know you can't hold your liquor.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“Gabriel: Bethany lacks understanding about the ways of the world. She still has much to learn and that makes her vulnerable."

Beth: "Do you have to make me sound like a full-time babysitting project?"

Xavier: "I happen to be an experienced babysitter. I can show you my resume if you'd like.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“I was not too impressed with human language; it seemed absurdly limited. There was so much that couldn’t be put into words. That was one of the saddest things about people - their most important thoughts and feelings often went unspoken and barely understood”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
“I'm getting a girlfriend soon," said Michael in a serious tone, and everyone laughed.

"You've got plenty of time for that, kiddo," said his father. "No need to rush."

"Well, I don't want a boyfriend, Daddy," said Madeline. "Boys are dirty, and they make a mess when they eat."

"I'd imagine the six-year-old ones would." Xavier chuckled. "But don't worry, they get better at it.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
