“You don’t like me, do you?’ he asked. ‘And yet, you liked it when I held your hand.’
I stood there, burning with humiliation.
He smiled. A spark of interest illuminated his eyes.
‘I find that so intriguing.’
‘I didn’t like it,’ I said, when I finally found my voice. ‘I hated it.’
Marko smiled.
‘Shall we try it again, then, just to be sure?”
Vanessa Garden, Captivate

“Have you ever read Hans Christian Andersen’s story of The Little Mermaid, Miranda? Have you ever wanted
something so badly that you were willing to suffer the sensation of a thousand blades cutting into your feet?”
Vanessa Garden, Captivate

“Marko pressed the creased paper flat against the note stand, rested the pads of his fingers lightly over the top of the keys and began to play. I watched him at first, my eyes drinking in the gorgeous sight that was Marko lost inside his head, but then the music—at first soft, like drops of dew, then rippling and rolling like a shower of rain—swept me away.”
Vanessa Garden, Captivate

Topics Mentioning This Author

“A little girl robbed you?" Tessa said.
"Actually, she wasn’t a little girl at all, as it turns out, but a midget in a dress with a penchant for violence, who goes by the name of Six-Fingered Nigel."
"Easy mistake to make," Jem said.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
