"I loved the sound of her sweet voice. Part angel, part music."
"Damn, she smelled like cinnamon and sugar fresh out of the oven."
"Luke used to give me butterflies.

"I watched you battle against the worst memory of your life and I watched you win. Make no mistake, Echo. I battled right beside you."

The worst type of crying wasn't the kind everyone could see--the wailing on the street corners, the tearing at clothes.

A section withered and became a scar on the part of your soul that survived...For people like me and Echo, our souls contained more scars than life.
