“...if you lose, you’ll have to wear a metal diaper to school and call me Lord Hunkyhair from now on.”

“[Keefe’s] smile softened into something that made Sophie’s cheeks warm. And her heart seem to trip over itself as he leaned close and carefully pinned Krakie to the back of her hand, right in the center.

Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“She studied the relaxed lines of his features. The soft flutter of his long, dark eyelashes. The adorable way his arms cradled Mrs. Snuggles against his bandaged chest.

I don’t know what to do.

She hadn’t meant to transmit the words, but... it felt good to say them. And it was like like he could hear her. He hadn’t even flinched. His breathing hadn’t changed rhythm.

So she told him, I really wish you were awake.

He let out a snuffly snore, which gave her the courage to ask, What if I just want you to wake up because I’m tired of fighting the echoes all by myself?

That wasn’t the right question, though.

What if I want you to wake up because I miss you?

She’d been trying to stay busy, trying not to look at the beautiful boy sleeping over in the corner.

She hated having him so close and still so far away.

And when she turned to Fitz, his eyes were more than fluttering.

One blink.

Two.

Three.

And then... they stayed open.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

“I’m sure Keefe won’t mind letting you join our skill lessons, though,” she suggested.

Fits snorted. “Great.”

“Aw, it’s not so bad. I know, it sounds like it’d be a disaster. But... the lessons have actually been pretty awesome. I think I might’ve had a meltdown without them- but don’t ever yell him I said that, okay. He’ll start wearing tunics that say Fosters Hero or something.”

“Sounds about right,” Fitz mumbled.

His eyes drifted to her hands and she realized she was fidgeting with the pins Keefe had given her.

“Well... I’m glad he’s been there for you,” he said quietly.

“Me too.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“Sophie froze.
“My name’s Fitz,” he added, stepping closer still.
Fitz? What kind of name was Fitz?”

“What I was still out of it, I heard your voice in my head- I think it’s why I woke up.”

Her face tried its best to burst into flames. “Sorry, I-“

“Don’t be,” he interrupted. “I’m glad I’m awake.”

“So am I,” she admitted. “But... you have to be super careful, okay?”

“I will if you will,” he made her promise.

He waited for her to meet his eyes, and when she did, he gave her the sweetest smile she’d ever seen.

“By the way,” he murmured, pressing Mr. Snuggles against his heart. “I missed you too.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“Wait for the morning, when you can regroup with your friends and the seven of you can start scheming together.”

“We could dig into some of the small stuff we hold back.”

“Like what?”

He started his hands, twisting the Cognate rings round and round before he transmitted, like all the stuff you tell Keefe and don’t tell me.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“I’m sure Keefe won’t mind letting you join our skill lessons, though,” she suggested.

Fits snorted. “Great.”

“I’ll always remember that’s you found me and brought me to the Lost Cities and showed me where I really belong. And that you came when I called for help and saved me from fading away. And you left everything behind to go with me when I joined the Black Swan. Need me to keep going? Because I can.”

His smile was a beautiful thing.

But it didn’t last.”

“I know this isn’t going to make any of it better,” Sophie said! Holding her sister tighter. “But I’ve done this before. The part where it all feels hopeless, and like it’s never going to come together. And you know what? Somehow, it does. It’s never perfect. But it usually better than what I’ve been fearing.”
Shannon Messenger, Nightfall

Shannon Messenger
“We wanted her to see that the shadows that scared her could be beau,titular and powerful when we learn how to control them,” Edaline added.
Taking control.
It sounded so simple.
And so impossible.”
Shannon Messenger, Nightfall

Shannon Messenger
“Three hands. No fourth for her. It was how it should be. How it would have to be. And Sophie could live with that. She could let them go again, to spare them that pain.
But it would still hurt.
It would always hurt.”
Shannon Messenger, Nightfall

Shannon Messenger
“Fitz laughed. You really are adorable when you worry.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“So,” she mumbled, not sure how to finish that sentence – or what to do with her arms. Or where to stand.

It all felt awkward and weird and wrong-until fits dropped his crutches and gently pulled her into a hug.

“I don’t want to go,” he whispered.

“I don’t want you to either,“ she admitted, hoping her hushed tone hit the thickness of her voice.

She told herself not to pull him tighter so he wouldn’t feel how hard her heart was pounding. But she couldn’t help leaning closer when she realized his pulse felt just as crazy as hers.

She didn’t know what that meant.

But it felt like something.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“Why would she pick tunics you don’t like?”

“Because they had to ruin them,” she said, running her hand over her bare shoulder.

Fitz cleared his throat. “I... wouldn’t call that ruined.”

He didn’t say what he would call it, though, and it made her with her Polyglot ability worked for translating Cute Boy so she could figure out if that was suppose to be a compliment.

It kinda felt like one.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“She stretched, feeling her spine pop in several places. She curled her legs to the side and opened her eyes-to find Fitz staring at her with his eyebrows practically launching off his forehead.”

“Sophie fought off her smile as Fitz kicked the sand, stirring up a coppery cloud. He was so determined to be angry that it was honestly kind of adorable.”
Shannon Messenger, Flashback

Shannon Messenger
“Sophie turned to him, so relieved to see his beautiful eyes staring at her that she didn’t care he’d been eavesdropping.”
