“I’ll tell everyone about our stellar apartment—though maybe I’ll bump us up to Park Slope—and about my fabulous publishing internship—I think I’ll pretend it’s a salaried job.” Come to think about it, this reunion seemed like a really bad idea. I leaned against the counter in defeat. “Oh, God. I haven’t done anything. I’m going to show up and be a failure.”“‘Oh, woe is me,’” Eva said from back at the mirror.“‘To have seen what I have seen,see what I see!’”That was the problem with living with a former theatre major.

“Ryan Carter wants to have dinner with me on Friday. And like a dozen other people. But still." I collapsed onto the sofa and kicked off my shoes.

Eva frowned. "But aren't you in a fight?"

"Yes. I don't know. Is this a really bad idea? Apparently he suggested it."

Eva's grin broadened and her dark eyes twinkled. She peeled off the rubber dish gloves and dropped down next to me on the sagging cushions. "I think it's a great idea."

"There's nothing wrong with being a Jane."

"That's what the Elizabeths always say," I muttered darkly.”

“didn’t mind playing tourist when I was a tourist. I’d tramped around the Vatican in sneakers, and carried my camera in one hand and map in the other as I walked through Prague. But”

“Sophie cocked her head like a killer-coo-coo bird.”
Allison Parr, Rush Me
“What he’s do?”
Allison Parr, Rush Me
“The driver didn’t pause in throwing my luggage into the storage. “That so?” “I guess.” The ride”
Allison Parr, Running Back
“We ate in silence a minute, but not it was comfortable. Abe polished off his first slice, and then met my eyes when he spoke. "I'm glad you moved to New York."
"And why's that?"
"You feel like home."
Warmth bloomed in my chest, born of nostalgia and truth and familiarity. "You feel like home, too.”
Allison Parr, Imaginary Lines
