“You made me happy. And I still care about you. Okay? You mean something to me—something I can’t really even put into words because everything seems too lame in comparison. I’ve always wanted you, even when I hated you. I want you even though you drive me freaking insane.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Glistening liquid pooled in two spots. Matthew was trying to clean it up, but his hands were shaking, his jaw working. I grabbed some towels from the linen closet and knelt beside him.
“I have this,” I whispered.
Matthew sat back, lifting his head and closing his eyes. He let out a staggered breath. “This should’ve never happened.”
Tear built in my eyes as I sopped up what was left of Adam. “I know.”
They are all like my children. Now I’ve lost another, and for what? It doesn’t make sense.” His shoulders shook. “It never makes sense.”
“I’m sorry.” Wetness gathered on my cheeks, and I wiped at my face with my shoulder. “His is my fault. He was trying to protect me.”
…. “It’s not just your fault Katy. This was a world you stumbled into, one filled with treachery and greed. You weren’t prepared for it. Neither are any of them.”
I lifted my head, blinking back tears. “I trusted Blake when I should’ve trusted Daemon. I let this happen.”
Matthew twisted toward me, grasping my cheeks. “You cannot take on the full responsibility for this. You didn’t make the choices Blake did. You didn’t force his hand.”
I choked on a broken sob as grief tore through me. His words didn’t ease the guilt, and he knew it. Then the strangest thing happened. He pulled me into his arms, and I broke. Sobs raked my entire body. I pressed my head against his shoulder, my body shaking his, or maybe he was crying for his loss, too. Time passed, and it became New Year. I welcomed it with tears streaming down my face and a heart ripped apart. When my tear dried, my eyes nearly swollen shut.
He pulled back, pushing my hair aside. “This isn’t the end of anything for you … for Daemon. This is just the beginning, and now you know what you’re truly up against. Don’t end up like Dawson and Bethany. Both of you are stronger than that.”

“...no soy el tipo de persona que huye de algo, no importa lo difícil que sea. Preferiría plantar la cara contra una pared de ladrillos que vivir por el resto de mi vida preguntándome cómo pudo haber sido.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Resistance is futile, Kitten.” “So is your charm.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“—¿Pero sabes en qué pensé todo el día de ayer? ¿Durante la noche? ¿El único pensamiento del que no pude escapar, sin importar cuán enojado estoy contigo?
—No, —susurré.
—Que soy afortunado, porque la persona que no puedo sacar de mi cabeza, la persona que significa más para mí de lo que puedo soportar, aún está viva.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“I let out a breath I didn’t know I’d been holding”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“That was a low blow”, I said to Andrew, because someone needed to. “He doesn’t even deserve your ass kicking, Daemon.”
“She’s right,” Adam said. Until then I hadn’t realized he’d moved, but he was on the other side of Daemon. “But if you want to put him out of commission for the next week after that comment, I’ll help.”
“Gee, thanks, brother.” Andrew scowled.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“I didn’t want Ash or Andrew to start giving you a bunch of crap because of me like they did with Dawson and Beth. So if you think I’m embarrassed of you or not ready to make my intentions very public, then you better get that idea out of your head. Because if that’s what it takes, then it’s on.” ……..
“Daemon…”
His smile was really starting to concern me. “I told you, Kitten. I like a challenge.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“I was trying to protext you.”
He lifted his eyes, and they pierced through me. “You wanted to keep me safe?”
“Yes”. I swallowed past the lump in my throat. “Not that it turned out that way in the end, but when I found out Blake and Vaughn were related, all I could think was that he played me – I let myself be played. And he knew how close we were. They’d do to you what they did to Dawson. There is no way I could have lived with that.”
……………..
“You should’ve never been worried about me getting hurt.” He stood, running both hands through his hair. “You know I can take care of myself. You know I can handle my own.”
“I know,” I said. “But I wasn’t going to knowingly put you at risk. You mean too much to me.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Sabes, no estoy realmente sorprendido. —Su sonrisa era mitad conocedora y mitad amarga—. Nos besamos. Dos veces. Pasaste la noche usándome como tu almohada corporal... y disfrutándolo. Estaba seguro de que enloquecerías al momento que me fuera. Corriste directamente hacia Boris, porque él realmente no te hace sentir nada. Y sentir algo por mí te asusta como el infierno.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Maldita sea. ¿Crees que no me arrepiento de actuar como un idiota contigo? Me he disculpado por eso —Se quedó allí, imponente sobre mí—. No lo entiendes. Todo esto no es fácil para mí. Y sé que es difícil para ti. Tienes mucho con lo que tratar. Pero yo tenía a mi hermana y a toda una raza contando conmigo. No quería que te acercaras a mí. No quería otra persona por quien preocuparme, otra persona a quien perder.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

“– KATY ANN SWARTZ!!
A mély álom ringató öleléséből egy dühödt kiáltás rántott ki: rekedt férfinevetés követte. Felpattant a szemem. Nem is emlékeztem, anyu mikor használta utoljára a teljes nevemet. Megvan: évekkel ezelőtt, amikor meg akartam simogatni egy oposszumkölyköt, amelyik az erkélyünkre tévedt.
Anyu az ajtómban állt, még mindig a köpenyében, a szája eltátva, mögötte Will, az arcán fura, elégedett mosoly.
– Mi van? – motyogtam. Megmozdult a párnám. Lepillantottam, és az arcomat elfutotta a pír. Daemon még mindig az ágyamban feküdt. Én pedig félig őrajta. Az egyik keze az enyémre kulcsolódott, és a szívére szorította. Jajistememcsakeztne.”

“Ayağa kalkıp yüzümü buruşturdum. "Of ya, belki de kıçımı kırmışımdır. "
"Umarım kırmamışsındır. Kıçının hayranıyım.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Inclinó su cabeza besándo las lágrimas hasta que atrapó cada una de ellas con su aliento. Entonces sus labios alcanzaron los míos y el espacio desapareció. El mundo entero desapareció por aquellos preciosos momentos.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, what a year from now is going to be like. Hell, we may end up killing each other over something stupid next week. It’s a possibility. But all I do know is what I feel for you isn’t going anywhere.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Eso me hizo feliz. Tú me hiciste feliz. Y todavía me preocupo por ti. ¿Bien? Significas algo para mí, algo que realmente aún no puedo poner en palabras porque todo parece demasiado pobre en comparación. Siempre te he querido, incluso cuando te odiaba. Te quiero aun cuando me llevas a la maldita locura”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Esa clase de amor debió haber sido capaz de vencer enfermedades. Esa clase de amor debió haber conquistado cualquier cosa.”

“Everything that had happened flipped through
my head like a photo album I wanted to burn.”

“I’m worried. I’m worried for a thousand different reasons and I hate this – I hate feeling like I can’t do anything about it. That history is on repeat and even though I can see it as clear as day, I can’t stop it.” - Daemon”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“I thought I was going to lose you before…before I had you.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Oh, I still want to strangle you. But I’m insane. You’re crazy. Maybe that’s why. We just make crazy together.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Sitting on the arm of the couch Blake waved his hand. "Sure. Whatever. She's all yours."
Daemon grinned. "That she is.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“Dee kuncogott, és egy nyalókát dugott a szájába.
– Na jó, mielőtt nemet mondasz, Ashsel már megbeszéltem.
– Mit beszéltél meg? – néztem rá értetlenül.
– Holnap bulit rendeznek náluk. Csak mi megyünk, egypáran. Daemon is ott lesz.
– Izé, nem hiszem, hogy Ash szeretne engem ott látni.
– De, minden oké. – Dee úgy repdesett a nappaliban faltól falig, mint egy csapdába esett pillangó. – Megígérte, hogy nem lesz tuskó. Szerintem kezd megkedvelni téged.
– Mint a benőtt lábkörmöt – morogtam. Már attól elszédültem, ha Dee-re néztem. – Nem is tudom.
– Jaj, Katy, ne már. Ha akarod, még Blake-et is meghívhatod.
– Na, őt aztán nem – fintorogtam. Dee megtorpant, a kezében lekonyult a nyalóka.
– Gondjaitok vannak? – kérdezte reménykedve.”

“Si hay algo hay un nosotros.”

“There was that damn constriction again, like I’d been punched in the chest, but in a good way. How you could be punched in a chest in a good way was beyond me, but damn, I sort of loved that feeling.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
“De akármilyen gyorsan is szaladtam, az arum gyorsabb volt.
Mellettem, aztán előttem jelent meg a sötét, sáros árnyék. Havon és jégen csúszva az obszidiánomért nyúltam, készen rá, hogy a hegyét beledöfjem az arumba, mindegy, hogy hol.
Már várta a mozdulatot. Kart formált magának, és gyomron vágott vele. Az ütés ereje a levegőbe lökött, aztán az oldalamra zuhantam. Éles fájdalom vágott a csontjaimba. Hanyatt fordultam, kipislogtam a havat a szememből.
Már értettem, miért tiltakozott Daemon olyan hevesen az ellen, hogy én is arumokra vadásszak. Éppen most nyomtak le, és a harc még el sem kezdődött.
A vészjósló árnyék ismét megjelent mellettem. Már nem viselt emberi formát: amikor megszólalt a hangja gonosz mormolásként hatolt a gondolataim közé.
Te nem luxsszen vagy, de azért ssspeciálisss. Miféle erőkkel bírsssz?”

“You had a poster of Bob Dylan on the wall. I expected the Jonas Brothers or something.”
