5.0% "Something comes surging up behind his eyes, some argument of love or vengeance. Something that's been building every second I've been away. And I want it, whatever it is. Want to hold it in both hands like his leaping heart that's been ripped from his chest Want to warm it with my body heat."

"He wants the jars that have caught the morning light; I think he believes they hold little pieces of the sun."-60"

35.0% "...He and I found a fallen star...I guess it was just some scrapmetal...But in the early morning when we first saw it, the edges caught the rising sun at odd angles, and it appeared to be on fire. ...He said it might be dangerous, and I knew that he was right. I saw all the jagged edges and rust, understood the treachery of the dark crevices it bore. Still, I wanted to think there was something special about it."
