“The training part," I guessed.

"Yup. You're going to be Dimitri's partner."

A moment of funny silence fell, probably not noticeable to anyone except Dimitri and me. Our eyes met.

"Guarding partner," Dimitri clarified unnecessarily, like maybe he too had been thinking of other kinds of partners.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“But I couldn't help myself, couldn't help the way I felt as I recalled the bliss and rush of a vampire's bite.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“I'm glad you're better," he said. His mouth sounded like it was almost in my hair, just above my my ear. "When I saw you fall..."

Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy

“I stopped. She was bleeding after all. Perfect lines crossed her wrists, not near any crucial veins, but enough to leave wet red tracks across her skin. She hadn;t hit her veins when she did this; death hadn't been her goal.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“How do you feel right now?"
"I hurt like hell."
"You'll feel worse tomorrow."

"What kind of logic is that?" I retorted.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“She felt so much emotionally, she would say, that a physical outlet - physical pain - was the only way to make her internal pain go away. It was the only way she could control it.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Ten feet from the car, a man stepped directly into our path. We came to a screeching halt, and I jerked Lissa back by her arm. It was him, the guy I’d seen across the street watching me. He was older than us, maybe mid-twenties, and as tall as I’d figured, probably six-six or six-seven. And under different circumstances–say, when he wasn’t holding up our desperate escape–I would have thought he was hot. Shoulder-length brown hair, tied back in a short ponytail. Dark brown eyes. A long brown coat–a duster, I thought it was called.
But his hotness was irrelevant now. He was only an obstacle keeping Lissa and me away from the car and our freedom. The footsteps behind us slowed, and I knew our pursuers had caught up. Off to the sides, I detected more movement, more people closing in. God. They’d almost sent a dozen guardians to retrieve us. I couldn’t believe it. The queen herself didn’t travel with that many.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“How come all the harmless people were so lame? Maybe that was the definition of safe.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“What are you? An after school special?”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“People think I'm unstable, but I tell you, Rose is ten times worse. Of course, that makes it harder for people to fuck with you, so I'm all for it."
- Christian Ozera to Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Acdemy)”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Don't worry, I won't bite. At least not in the way you're afraid of.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“You understand your responsibilities better than guardians twice your age. You'll do what you have to do to succeed.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Rose Hathaway: "Was he right?”
Dimitri Belikov: "Who?”
Rose Hathaway: "Victor…he said it couldn't have worked. The necklace.”
Dimitri Belikov: "What do you mean?”
Rose Hathaway: "The spell. Victor said you had to want me…to care about me…for it to work. Did you? Did you want me?”
Dimitri Belikov: "Yes, Roza. I did want you. I still do. I wish…we could be together.”
(Vampire Academy)”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“It's worth it. It's worth giving up the sun and magic.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Smiling, I cut across the quadrangle toward the commons. I felt better about life than I had in a very long time. We could do this, Lissa and me. We could do this together.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Dimitri: "Were you really going to attack all of us? Doing that...protecting her like that—it was very brave. Stupid, but still brave. Why did you even try it?”
Rose: "Because I'm her guardian.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“What's with all the running, anyway? I mean, I realize the importance of stamina and all that, but shouldn't I be moving on to something with a little hitting? They're still killing me in group practice.”
"Maybe you should hit harder.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“I know your character. I know you're going to be a great guardian.”
His confidence made that warm feeling return. "I'm glad someone does. Everyone else thinks I'm totally irresponsible.”
"With the way you worry more about Lissa than yourself…" He shook his head. "No. You understand your responsibilities better than guardians twice your age. You'll do what you have to do to succeed.”
I thought about that. "I don't know if I can do everything I have to do.”
He did that cool one-eyebrow thing.
"I don't want to cut my hair," I explained.
He looked puzzled. "You don't have to cut your hair. It's not required.”
"All the other guardian women do. They show off their tattoos.”
Unexpectedly, he released my hands and leaned forward. Slowly, he reached out and held a lock of my hair, twisting it around one finger thoughtfully. I froze, and for a moment, there was nothing going on in the world except him touching my hair. He let my hair go, looking a little surprised—and
embarrassed—at what he'd done.
"Don't cut it," he said gruffly.
Somehow, I remembered how to talk again. "But no one'll see my tattoos if I don't.”
He moved toward the doorway, a small smile playing over his lips. "Wear it up.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“But also... well, you and I will both be Lissa's gaurdians someday. I need to protect her at all cost. If a pack of Strogoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her."
"I know that. Of course that's what you have to do." The black sparkles were dancing in front of my eyes again. I was fading out.
"No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“Whoa, Dimitri," I said, tossing my bag on the floor. "I realize this is actually a current hit in Eastern Europe right now, but do you think we could maybe listen to something that wasn't recorded before I was born?”
Only his eyes flicked toward me; the rest of his posture remained the same. "What does it matter to you? I'm the one who's going to be listening to it. You'll be outside running.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
“No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you." - Dimitri”
