“The only way to save you was to leave.”This is were the book started to get even more intense. We have Emma who is acting out, Cole trying to be there for her, and Evan back into the picture. Talk about a mess! Emma doesn’t know what to do with herself, so she does what she does best. She tries to escape it, she runs.
“I’m not supposed to live without you. And your not supposed to live without me. We’re in this life together. Without each other, we’re not really living.”
… I was feeling again. Way too much. And I was afraid. So very afraid of what might happen next if I wasn’t able to tuck everything back into the darkness, where it all belonged.
This was the girl I knew. This was the girl I’d loved. And although I didn’t know what happened to her, I knew I had to find out.
“… the truth is, you love her. You have always loved her. You will always love her. You're here because you can't walk away. You saw how broken and empty she was back in Weslyn, and you had to follow her. You'll never be able to let her go. You're here because... it's where you belong, with her.”
“I’m not supposed to live without you. And you’re not supposed to live without me. We’re in this life together. Without each other, we’re not really living.”
"Living in the mistake of your past isn't going to do anything but destroy your future"
"Loving you is the only certainty in my life. I will never stop. But it was because how much i love you that i ended up hurting you so badly. I only wanted you to be happy, and be rid of my destructive life, And you're so beautiful and perfect even with your flaws. I couldn't destroy you too."
" Let me love you. Let me love you enough for the two of us, until you can accept that you're worth it. Because you are, Emma. I don't know how to convince you. But I'll spend the rest of my life trying. You can't give up on me now. I won't let you."
Even when you weren't there to save me, you were my reason to breath. And for that i will always love you. Always"
"To breathing!" Serena raised her shot glass to mine.
Every choice had a consequence. I'd earned every aching beat that pounded in my chest.
I was so tired of fighting. Tired of hurting. Tired of the guilt that would never release me, and the regrets that could not be changed. I didn't want this life.
I needed him in a way that probably wasn't healthy for either of us. He was my fix. Even if he could never fix me.
"I don't want you to hate me. I want you to forgive me. I want you to love me again. But I don't know how to let you if I can't forgive myself. It always comes back to forgiving, doesn't it?"
All because of a girl with a fiery attitude and a blush that let me know exactly what she thought of me. That's all it took, and I was hers.
"I only exist because of you, Evan. You've saved me more times than you know. I'm so afraid I'm not worth the breath you gave me."
"I'm not supposed to live without you. And you're not supposed to live without me. We're in this life together. Without each other, we're not really living."
I love him more than he will ever know. And because of that, I choose his happiness.
