Revenge is a dish best served cold.
♪♫ A three-chord symphony crashes into space
The moon is hanging upside down
I don't know why it is I'm still on the case
It's a ravenous town
And you still refuse to be traced
Seems to me such a waste
And every victory has a taste that's bittersweet
And it's your face I'm looking for on every street ♪♫
THIS BOOK STANDS ALONE!
"Do you believe in fate, Eden?"
"Sometimes I do," I managed to say, trying to keep the breeziness in my voice.
"I think it was fate that brought you to me today," he said.
"I want to hurt the man who hurt me. I want to destroy him for destroying me. And I won't be happy, I won't be free, until I do so."
"It's just when I chose Javier as my mark, I never thought that my mark would choose me. Because that's what Javier had just done. I wanted to win over his heart so I could get what I wanted. But I had a feeling he was about to get to my heart first."
"It's funny what love can do to a person. It strips them of everything, even their instincts. It creates a new reality for you to adhere to, a new world where you break the rules just to keep the love intact."
"You can scream, angel. I love the sound of my name coming form your lips, especially while I'm occupied with these ones."
"You know," he began, voice low and full, "if you were to ever leave me, I'd come looking for you on every street."
"Always." And I knew he kept his promises.
I couldn't get past all the wrongs in my life, I couldn't accept them. To accept it, to live it, peacufully, that was like saying it was all okay." - Ellie
" It's funny what love can do to a person. It strips them of everything, even their instincts. It creates a new world for you to adhere to, a new world where you break the rules just to keep the love intact."
"I was naïve and young and caught in the spark that would create the flames." - Ellie
"It’s funny how quickly I had turned into someone that wanted to spend every minute with a guy. That had never happened to me before. I guess I could blame it on working the long con, but deep down, I knew that wasn’t it."
"Some days I felt like Eden White. Other days I felt like Ellie Watt. But most days, I only knew one thing: I was a horrible con artist. And, against my better judgement, I was making peace with that."
"You can’t just hand over your virginity to me, Eden. I have to take it from you. I have to make you surrender to me, to everything, in every way possible. I want your heart, your soul, and your body. I want the you that you’re hiding deep inside. I must have her."
“Why am I good to you? Because I can see you are broken. And I want nothing more than to put you back together.”
“My angel will always come before me.”
“This little angel was definitely going to get her wings dirty.”
I believe I had nothing to fear.
I believe I only had something to lose.
"How does he look at me?" -Ellie/Eden
"Like he's been searching for you his whole life."
Any love that starts out under a lie is bound to kill you.
"I need you my angel. And I'll do anything and everything to keep you."
"You are all mine, even if you run. I will find you because a soul needs its other half to truly live." -Javier
"Any love that starts under a lie is bound to kill you."
"You know," he began, voice low and full, " if you were to ever leave me, I'd come looking for you, on every street."
"I'm a very bad man who has done too many bad things to deserve a pardon. I shouldn't be waling this earth as I do, I shouldn't have the money I have, I shouldn't have the love of a woman who is so far above me she should have wings."
"You want revenge. You want vindication. And I hope you get those things. But the relief will be fleeting. Because you can never right the external wrongs until you fix what's wrong inside you."
