“You're staring at me."

"I am not. I'm just... thinking. Without blinking.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“As long as we're both alive and our hearts are still beating, there's still a chance. I won't go down without a fight, and I know you won't either. That gives us a chance.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“What’s your name?” I ask again.
“Chris,” he says. “Chris Young.”
I exhale dramatically, blowing my bangs out of my eyes.
“I can take you,” I reply. “But if you try anything, I’ll shoot you right between the eyes. Seriously.”
He almost smiles.
“Yes, ma’am.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency
