"Suddenly, my heart started going a mile a minute and I was breathing hard. Jack Eversea was in my house! I willed myself to calm down and catch my breath. He was just a person. A human being. Right? I bent down for a moment and stuck my head between my knees, hoping my blood would circulate normally again."
"What do you want me to say? I'm sorry I'm so fucked up I sold my life, my soul and my future to the devil?"
His hand left mine, and he pressed it palm down in the centre of my chest.
"If I'd know you were in my future, I would have chosen differently."
"Jack tensed, and puling away from me, turned to the edge of the pool. After several moments of mumbling something that sounded suspiciously like "dead puppies, dead puppies, dead puppies", he lifted himself out."
"Did anyone ever tell you how arrogant you are?"
"Not arrogant. Confident. There's a difference."
"Do you think it's normal for people to feel like this," he motioned between us, "whatever this is that happens when we are in the same room with each other? Maybe you have no idea, but I do. It. Doesn't. Happen. At least not to me."
