"When every time you look at me, it's like seeing the sunrise over the mountains, it's rays lighting up everything around it so even if someone wants to stay in the darkness, they won't, not for long, not when you're around."
"And the damsel fell for the villian."
“Be the Cinderella at the ball and the prince takes you home, right?
Isn’t that how life worked? Instead, the prince kissed me, then insulted me, rejected me, and so started the war.”
“Only you could make something so asinine sound somewhat sweet. Okay, point me to the Fortress of Solitude, and I’ll try not to sweat estrogen everywhere.”
“Upstairs. And Gabs, I really mean it when I say . . . If you ever leave a tampon in my room, I will cut you.”
“Aw . . .” Gabs placed her hands against her heart. “That’s just so”—she wiped a fake tear—“thoughtful.”
“Hey!” He chuckled. “I was just trying to help.”
“Grabbing your penis is not the answer, Lex!”
“Weird, because it so often is.”
“I hate today.”
“Is it the rain?” He frowned.”
“I gently placed her back in the passenger seat. “Buckle up, Sunshine, I’m about to rock your world.”
“Hmm . . . I wonder how many girls you’ve said that to?”
“That line? Too cheesy. I saved it for you.”
“Touched.” She smirked, then reached for my hand. “And Lex?”
“Yeah?” I was shaking, but I squeezed her hand back.
“Tonight.” She licked her pink lips. “You were my hero.”
I had never realized how badly I wanted her to see me in that light—until that moment.”
“Don’t play with fire, Sunshine . . .”
“I’m made of fire.” I licked my lips as his eyes narrowed. “Don’t get burned.”
“I didn’t ask you to save me!” I shouted.
“You didn’t have to!” He matched my tone as he charged toward me. “Because I always will!”
“The front door slammed. And Lex Luthor, super villain, my hero, boyfriend, and the strongest guy I’d ever known, crumpled into my arms and didn’t let go.”
“And the damsel fell for the villain. Write that, Disney.”
