    Veronica Roth
    “You think my first instinct is to protect you. Because you're small, or a girl, or a Stiff. But you're wrong."

    He leans his face close to mine and wraps his fingers around my chin. His hand smells like metal. When was the last time he held a gun, or a knife? My skin tingles at the point of contact, like he's transmitting electricity through his skin.

    "My first instinct is to push you until you break, just to see how hard I have to press." he says, his fingers squeezing at the word break. My body tenses at the edge in his voice, so I am coiled as tight as a spring, and I forget to breathe.

    His dark eyes lifting to mine, he adds, "But I resist it."

    "Why..." I swallow hard. "Why is that your first instinct?"

    "Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up. I've seen it. It's fascinating." He releases me but doesn't pull away, his hand grazing my jaw, my neck. "Sometimes I just want to see it again. Want to see you awake.”
    Veronica Roth, Divergent

    "That's sensible of you," I say, smiling too. "We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something."
    I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
    "Maybe I'm already sure," he says, "and I just don't want to frighten you."
    I laugh a little. "Then you should know better."
    "Fine," he says. "Then I love you.”
    Veronica Roth, Divergent

    Veronica Roth
    “Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined.

    But if I saw her, I wouldn't recognize her.”
