    “And I just couldn't take it anymore. I closed the distance between us, slammed him back against the chair and kissed him, holding his head still with both my hands buried in that stupid, stupid hair. I half expected more resistance, because Pritkin had never met an argument he didn't like. So it was a shock when he ran his hands down my sides, cupped my hips and slid us both to the floor.
    "I'm going straight to hell for this," he muttered.
    "At least you'll know a lot of people," I said breathlessly. ”

    “He smiled at that, and then his gaze shifted to a spot over my shoulder and it faded. 'These doubts wouldn’t have anything to do with the company you’re keeping of late, would they?'

    “I'm Min's fairy godmother, Charm Boy,' Liza said, frowning down at him. 'And if you don't give her a happily ever after, I'm going to come back and beat you to death with a snow globe.'

    “Sophie was a walking truth serum. If she was touching bare skin, she could yank the truth out of you like a loose tooth. I’d spent several unpleasant hours in her company during the Council’s screening process for humans who planned to work with vampires. That’s when I learned that you don’t refer to Buffy, the Winchesters, or even the Frog Brothers from The Lost Boys in front of Council officials. They do not have a sense of humor about that sort of entertainment.”

    "My purse."

    “Oh my God," Maddie whispered, horrified. "I rented him that boat. Does that make me a murderer?"

    “Absolutely. I love men who kill bugs.”

    “And then when I was freaking out and couldn’t breathe, he was so…gentle.” Zoe sighed and colored, remembering. “He was holding me, and talking to me in that voice…you know, sort of low and rough around the edges…”

    “All the Nolans sound like that,” Justine said reflectively. “Like they’ve got a mild case of bronchitis. Totally hot.”

    "I meant-I mean, well, we're friends-"
    "Are we? Are we friends?"
    "I-yes. What else would you, uh.."
    "I am not sure what I would call it. I had never given it much thought until recently. There did not seem to be a point."
    "Yes, yes, exactly. And there's no reason to suddenly-"
    "But I suppose I shall have to now, if I am returned, that is. Won't I?”

    “Are you suggesting we pull a little good cop, bad cop scenario on him? And You're even letting me be the bad cop?"

    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
    Rob Siltanen
