    “No," Dimitri interrupted gently. He moved his face toward mine, our foreheads nearly touching. "It won't happen to you. You're too strong. You'll fight it, just like you did this
    time."
    "I only did because you were here." He wrapped his arms around me, and I buried my face in his chest. "I can't do it by myself," I whispered.
    "You can," he said. There was a tremulous note in his voice. "You're strong—you're so, so strong. It's why I love you.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “It's not about you, okay? This time, it's about me. Not you. All my life, Lissa... all my life, it's been the same. They come first. I've lived my life for you. I've trained to be your shadow, but you know what? I want to come first. I need to take care of myself for once. I'm tired of looking out for everyone else and having to put aside what I want. Dimitri and I did that, and look what happened. He's gone. I will never hold him again. Now I owe it to him to do this. I'm sorry if it hurts you, but it's my choice!”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “If you want some advice—which I'm sure you don't—you guys should lay off on the magic. Christian still thinks you're moving in on Lissa."
    "What?" he asked in mock astonishment. "Doesn't he know my heart belongs to you?"
    "It does not. And no, he's still worried about it, despite what I've told him."
    "You know, I bet if we started making out right now, it would make him feel better."
    "If you touch me," I said pleasantly, "I'll provide you with the opportunity to see if you can heal yourself. Then we'd see how badass you really are.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “We can't..." he told me.
    "I know," I agreed.

    Then his mouth was on mine again, and this time, I knew there would be no turning back. There were no walls this time. Our bodies wrapped together as he tried to get my coat off, then his shirt, then my shirt. ... It really was a lot like when we'd fought out on the quad earlier-that same passion and heat. I think at the end of the day, the instincts that power fighting and sex aren't so different. They all come from an animal side of us.

    Yet, as more and more clothes came off, it went beyond just animal passion. It was sweet and wonderful at the same time. When I looked into his eyes, I could see without a doubt that he loved me more than anyone else in the world, that I was his salvation, the same way that he was mine. I'd never expected my first time to be in a cabin in the woods, but I realized the place didn't matter. The person did. With someone you loved, you could be anywhere, and it would be incredible. Being in the most luxurious bed in the world wouldn't matter if you were with someone you didn't love.”

    “Did you mean it... that if Victor did tell...that you'd..." I couldn't finish. I couldn't bring myself to say the words have him killed.
    "I don't have much influence in the upper levels of Moroi royalty, but I have plenty among the guardians who handle the dirty work in our world."
    "You didn't answer the question. If you'd really do it."
    "I'd do a lot of things to protect you, Roza.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “Are you sleepwalking?' A voice asked behind me.
    "I was testing dorm security," I said. "It sucks.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    Richelle Mead
    “I love you, Roza." He kissed me again. "I'll always be here for you. I'm not going to let anything happen to you."
    The words were wonderful and dangerous. He shouldn't have said anything like that to me. He shouldn't have been promising he'd protect me, not when he was supposed to dedicate his life to protecting Moroi like Lissa. I couldn't be first in his heart, just like he couldn't be first in mine. That was why I shouldn't have said what I said next-but I did anyway.
    "And I won't let anything happen to you," I promised. "I love you." He kissed me again, swallowing off any other words I might have added.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “I can't wait until this show gets on the road," he said. "You and me are going to have so much fun, Rose. Picking out curtains, doing each other's hair, telling ghost stories..."
    The reference to "ghost stories" hit a little closer to home than I was comfortable with. Not that choosing curtains or brushing Christian's hair was much more appealing.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “You will lose what you value most...

    It hadn't been me that Rhonda was talking about. It hadn't even been Dimitri's life.

    What you value most.

    It had been his soul.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “I sprang toward him with the stake, hoping to catch him by surprise. But Dimitri was hard to catch by surprise. And he was fast. Oh, so fast. It was like he knew what I was going to do before I did it. He halted my attack with a glancing blow to the side of my head. I knew it would hurt later, but my adrenaline was running too strong for me to pay attention to it now.

    Distantly, I realized some other people had come to watch us. Dimitri and I were celebrities in different ways around here, and our mentoring relationship added to the drama. This was prime-time entertainment.

    My eyes were only on Dimitri, though. As we tested each other, attacking and blocking, I tried to remember everything he'd taught me. I also tried to remember everything I knew about him. I'd practiced with him for months. I knew him, knew his moves, just as he knew mine. I could anticipate him the same way. Once I started using that knowledge, the fight grew tricky. We were too well matched, both of us too fast. My heart thumped in my chest, and sweat coated my skin.

    Then Dimitri finally got through. He moved in for an attack, coming at me with the full force of his body. I blocked the worst of it, but he was so strong that I was the one who stumbled from the impact. He didn't waste the opportunity and dragged me to the ground, trying to pin me. Being trapped like that by a Strigoi would likely result in the neck being bitten or broken. I couldn't let that happen.

    So, although he held most of me to the ground, I managed to shove my elbow up and nail him in the face. He flinched and that was all I needed. I rolled him over and held him down. He fought to push me off, and I pushed right back while also trying to maneuver my stake. He was so strong, though. I was certain I wouldn't be able to hold him. Then, just as I thought I'd lose my hold, I got a good grip on the stake. And like that, the stake came down over his heart. It was done.

    Behind me, people were clapping but all I noticed was Dimitri. Our gazes were locked. I was still straddling him, my hands pressed against his chest. Both of us were sweaty and breathing heavily. His eyes looked at me with pride—and hell of a lot more. He was so close and my body yearned for him, again thinking he was a piece of me I needed in order to be complete. The air between us seemed warm and heady, and I would have given anything in that moment to lie down with him and have his arms wrap around me. His expression showed that he was thinking the same thing. The fight was finished, but remnants of the adrenaline and animal intensity remained.”

    “You can't fool me, comrade. You want to put on a cowboy hat and keep lawless bank robbers in line.''

    "No time. I have enough trouble keeping you in line.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “He shrugged. "The same as any other. It's a way to make people feel better about themselves. Everyone likes feeling special. Being part of an elite group is a way to do that."
    "But you weren't part of it?"
    "No need. I already know I'm special.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “Ah, my daughter,ʺ he said. ʺEighteen, and already youʹve been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see.ʺ He paused. ʺI couldnʹt be prouder.”
    Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice

    “Stop fighting me!" he said, trying to pull on the arm he held.

    He was in a precarious position himself, straddling the rail as he tried to lean over far enough to get me and actually hold onto me.

    “Let go of me!” I yelled back.

    But he was too strong and managed to haul most of me over the rail, enough so that I wasn’t in total danger of falling again.

    See, here’s the thing. In that moment before I let go, I really had been contemplating my death. I’d come to terms with it and accepted it. I also, however, had known Dimitri might do something exactly like this. He was just that fast and that good. That was why I was holding my stake in the hand that was dangling free.

    I looked him in the eye. "I will always love you."

    Then I plunged the stake into his chest.

    It wasn’t as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.

    "That’s what I was supposed to say. . .” he gasped out.

    Those were his last words.”

    “You forgot another lesson: Never turn your back until you know your enemy

    I see you—which will be soon.
    Love, D.”
    Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

    “Roza." His voice had that same wonderful lowness, the same accent . . . it
    was all just colder. "You forgot my first lesson: Don’t hesitate.”
    Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

    “Don't touch her," he growled.
    There was a note in his voice that would of scared me if it had been directed toward me. He shoved me behind him, putting his body protectively in front of mine with my back to the table. Guardians came at us from all directions,and Dimitri began dispatching them with the same deadly grace that had once made people call him a god.”
    Richelle Mead, Spirit Bound
