Her safe little world had to be disrupted, and I was the one chosen to drag her into hell. It was my responsibility to keep her alive and in check. Her life depends on me. My throat felt dry. She didn’t deserve this, but she also didn’t have a choice. - Reid
“I understand you’re scared and you don’t know what’s going on, but you can trust me . I won’t let anything happen to you.” We stood there, staring at each other, and after a few seconds, something changed in her eyes and she closed the gap between us.
I wanted to grab her and run. To hell with the war, the Resistance. I wanted to take Josie away and keep her safe. - Reid
“You’ve sacrificed so much,” I said, watching the water lap around my shins.
“Well,” he whispered, drawing me toward his side, “some things, some people , are worth making sacrifices for.”
“I’m tired of not living,” I whispered. I hadn’t planned the words—they just broke out of me.
His eyes searched my face, then he dipped his head, lips barely grazing mine. - Josie
I felt like I was wearing Princess Leia’s buns at a Star Trek convention.
I threw myself into movies and books even more than I had before Nick [her brother] died. I find comfort in fiction—it’s safe. I can lose myself and find myself in books.
The agony and despair bored a non-repairable hold in my heart. There was no filling it.
It had to be what it felt like to be zapped by Loki's specter.
My rib cage rattled as if my heard was demonstrating Newton's Law of Inertia.
My chest hurt, like the Hulk had my torso in a death squeeze.
And I latched onto that one morsel of good news like Thor's hammer, Mjolnir.
So I'd hopped in my car, my personal version of an X-wing, like when Anakin first embarked on his new life to train as a Jedi.
The weight of obligation settled on my shoulders with the force of a landing Y-wing.
