“Give me your hands," I said.
I studied his palms. "Yes, she'll forgive you. She'll realize you saved her."
"You're a palm reader now?"
"Yes."
"When did you learn how to do that?"
"While you were sleeping."
"I waste so much time sleeping. What else do you see?"
"I see food. Max is going to bring food."
"Do you see cake?"
"No, no cake."
"Let me see your hands," he said.
I raised an eyebrow.
"I learned while you were talking." He studied my palms. "Your scars cross over the lines in your hands, like you have two lives... One to mess up and one to get right."
"That's convenient. What else do you see?"
"I see you happy," he said.
"Yeah?" I asked.
He nodded. "And I see you."
My fingers itched to reach out and touch his face, to make sure I'd still know him in the dark.
"I see you, too," I said.”

“It was like she was stuck, her body not able to absorb what was happening around her. I wanted to go to her, to hold her, or hug her, to help her understand. But I needed the practice in walking away from her, so I followed Jamie's steps across the street.”
Shalanda Stanley, Drowning Is Inevitable

“He was wild, throwing around words like 'love', He pushed most people away, but not me. With me, he was dying to be saved. I wanted to tell him that love never saved anybody.”
