I know which life is my real one now, no matter what happens. It’s the one with you. For some reason, knowing that even one person knows my story makes things different. Maybe it’s like the poem says. Maybe this is my way of not going gentle.
I love you. (Ky Markham)”

lightning. Once it has forked, hot-white, from sky to earth, there is no going back.
It's time. I feel it, I know it. My eyes on him, his on me, and both of us breathing, watching, tired of of waiting. Ky close his eyes, but mine are still open. what will it feel like, his lips on mine? Like a secret told, a promise kept? Like that line in the poem-a shower of all my days- silvery rain falling all around me, where the lighting meets the earth?
The whistle blows below us and the moment breaks. We are safe.
For now.”

Bianca What did you think of it?


Bryn ((B2/B.P))   Ryeosomniac~~ I really liked it. I thought Cassia and Ky where really cute together. I also really liked Xander, he was so loyal to Cassia. I
t got a bit boring in the middle, hence the four star. I can't wait to read the next one.


Bianca Same here! I like both guys, ha that is always my problem. I always like both and have trouble choosing. Xanda is like Simon. Always loyal even if it hurts them. Ky is cool though, I loved how he opened up to Cassia and shows her who he really is. I love his poems and his story. :)
