“Just hold me," I told him, eyes closed as his voice warmed my entire body. "Please don't let me go ever again.”
Ben Alderson, Poisoned in Light

“I cannot imagine what my life was like before you were in it. It’s as if you have been by my side for all eternity.”
Ben Alderson, Poisoned in Light

“Please be real," I pleaded, a croak blocking my throat. I rubbed at my eyes. Surely this was a dream, some sort of illusion brought on by too much wine.”
Ben Alderson, Poisoned in Light
