“Each memory rips through me, and although I stow myself against the emotions, I can’t prevent the pain that accompanies each image. Pain for a love never acknowledged, pain for a friendship now gone. Pain for a loss I can’t possibly endure.”
Christine Fonseca, Mea Culpa

“My thoughts are quiet, but not calm. There is a terror on the edge of the silence, a terror fed by my burning flesh and the stench of death.”
Christine Fonseca, Transcend

“A hand in mine.. hot. Breath on my neck... sweet. The feel of lips on my own... forbidden.”
Christine Fonseca, Lacrimosa

“But my feelings won’t abate. Feelings I’m not supposed to have. Feelings I can’t relinquish.”
Christine Fonseca, Dies Irae

“My cheek stings with Demi’s anger. On my lips, the taste of her skin lingers. The two sensations mix, intoxicating me. It’s all too much. And yet, it’s all so much more real than anything I’ve experienced before. I want to drink it up, let the rush crest over me. I feel alive. Powerful.
And I want more.”
Christine Fonseca, Dies Irae

“He suddenly leaned in, and his fingers brushed my cheek. Warmth flooded my skin, and I frozen, waiting for him to pull back.

He didnt. The tips of his fingers lingered on my cheek for a moment. Then, very slowly, his hand slipped forward, the palm brushing my skin. Frozen, I stared at him, watching his face as his fingers moved from my cheek to my forehead to my chin, like a blind man tracing someone's features to see them in his mind.

"What are you doing to me?" he whispered.”
Julie Kagawa, The Immortal Rules

“The more one judges, the less one loves.”
Honoré de Balzac, Physiologie Du Mariage

“There are few things I hate more than feeling weak. Needing help or failing top the list. The worst, however, is knowing that all three just happened.”
Christine Fonseca, Lacrimosa
