    “If I love you more than you love me, I'm as good as dead. Yet I can't make myself take it back. I can't just walk away from you, because every time you pass by me without smiling, without touching my hand, or at least making eye contact, it feels like I'm dying inside. And I'm pretty sure that hurts worse than whatever Marc would do to me. Whatever your dad would do. Hell, Faythe, I'm pretty sure that never touching you again would hurt worse than the nastiest death Calvin could think up for me.”
    Rachel Vincent, Shift

    “Why is this so hard?” I whispered.

    “You deserve better than me,” I whispered, and the selfish part of me hoped he wouldn’t hear.
    He heard.
    Marc spun me around so fast I would have slipped again if he weren’t holding me up. We were so close drops of water from his chin fell onto my chest, and I had to crane my neck to see him.
    “You are perfect for me, Faythe, just like you are, because you’re not perfect. You’re headstrong, and impulsive, and outspoken, and I’m possessive, and overprotective, and too easy to piss off. We’re both wrong for a lot of things, but we’re right for each other. Do you understand?”
    I nodded. I didn’t know what else to do.”
    Rachel Vincent, Shift

    “I don’t want to love him—this would be so much simpler if I didn’t. But I do.
    He’s funny, and passionate, and strong, and he believes in me more than I even believe in myself. When he looks at me, I feel like I could take on the whole world and come out standing tall. I like myself better when I’m with him, because of how he sees me. He makes me feel beautiful and powerful, like I’m the most important thing in the world, and I don’t know how to walk away from that. I don’t know how to walk away from him.”
    Rachel Vincent, Alpha

    “How long can you keep me invisible?"
    "As long as were in physical contact."
    My throat felt dry. "Holding hands?" That's how we'd done it last time.
    "Unless you had something else in mind?”
    Rachel Vincent, If I Die

    “I could have kissed you months ago, but it wouldn’t have meant anything. I wished for you to see me. And want me. So…did you mean it?”
    “Yes,” I said, and some unnamed tension inside me eased. “I see you, Tod.”
    Rachel Vincent, If I Die

    “You know, most girls sleep with a teddy bear or an extra pillow. But I gotta say, that's kinda hot...”

    “He shrugged, looking right into my eyes. "Right now, this is all I feel." He held our intertwined hands up for me to see and I wanted to look away, but I couldn't break the hold his gaze had on me, like he could see more than anyone else saw. Things I couldn't see myself.”
    Rachel Vincent, If I Die

    Rachel Vincent
    “So, what now? We’re friends?"

    Yeah. If friends could be in love, but not together. In sync, but out of touch. Willing to die for each other, but unable to trust.”
    Rachel Vincent, My Soul to Steal

    Rachel Vincent
    “You think I need to be rescued?"
    "I think it doesn't hurt to let someone else do the rescuing every now and then, when your own armor starts to get banged up.”

    “I want you. I want you so badly I can’t stand it. When you left, it felt like the world got darker. Like I couldn’t truly see anything. Couldn’t feel anything.”

    “When I was a child, all problems had ended with a single word from my father. A smile from him was sunshine, his scowl a bolt of thunder. He was smart, and generous, and honorable without fail. He could exile a trespasser, check my math homework, and fix the leaky bathroom sink, all before dinner. For the longest time, I thought he was invincible. Above the petty problems that plagued normal people.

    And now he was gone.”
    Rachel Vincent, Alpha

    “Anger is great. It's powerful, when you need something to hold you up. Something to steel your spine. But in the dark, when you're alone with the truth, anger can't survive. The only thing that can live in the dark with you is fear.”
    Rachel Vincent, My Soul to Steal

    “I laughed. It was just like Owen to make excuses for someone else’s shortcomings. Even fictional characters. Owen found my tendency to speak my mind “refreshingly honest,” and hailed Marc’s temper as “a deep protective instinct.” He said Ethan “thoroughly enjoyed life,” and that Parker “really knew how to have a good time.” According to Owen, we were all doing just fine, and all was right with the world.”

    “Only two years dead, and it was getting harder for me to feel…anything. I was starting to slip into the darkness. The numbness. And the worst part is that it wasn’t even scary. I was losing myself, and I didn’t even care. Then I met you, and at first I didn’t understand what had happened. What had changed. All I knew was that I wanted to be near you. Then you helped me with Addison, even though it nearly got you killed—I nearly got you killed—and I started to understand how special you are. But by then, you were getting serious with Nash. With my brother—one of few people in the whole world I still gave a damn about. So I tried to stay away. I tried so hard.” His voice cracked on the last word, and my heart cracked with it. Tears stood in my eyes, but I was afraid to let them fall. I was afraid to even breathe for fear of missing a single word. "But you kept pulling me back. You’re the brightest thing I’ve ever seen, Kaylee. You’re this beautiful ball of fire spitting sparks out at the world, burning fiercely, holding back the dark by sheer will. And I always knew that if I reached out—if I tried to touch you—I’d get burned. Because you’re not mine. I’m not supposed to feel the fire. I’m not supposed to want it. But I do. I want you, Kaylee, like I’ve never wanted anything. Ever. I want the fire. I want the heat, and the light, and I want the burn.”

    “Some things are private. Some things needed to be said, even when the person who needed to hear them couldn’t hear anything. Ever again.”

    “So, 'reaper' is really just a nice word for 'covert pervert?' Is that what you're saying?”
