You smell good, too,” said Patch It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways. “Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.” Naked. I know the drill.
Say 'provoking' again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do.
Keep in mind that people change, but the past doesn't.
Being with you never felt wrong. It's the one thing I did right. You're the one thing I did right.
I love you more than I think I should.
But if I hadn't fallen, I wouldn't have met you.
Did I really want to stay on this road longer, knowing it was only going to end in devastation?
Any happiness, no matter how brief, seemed better than the long, simmering torture of waking up day after day, knowing I could never have him.
One more secret smile. One more shared laugh. One more electric kiss. Finding him was like finding someone I didn't know I was searching for.
I couldn't stand here, hanging on, when the very thing I held disappeared more with each passing day.
I needed him like I'd never needed anyone.
I would lay down everything I possess, even my soul, for you. If that isn't love, it's the best I have.
If anyone were to find out—” I began. Patch kissed me, hard, but with an amused glint in his eye. “If I get caught, it’ll mean the end of kissing you. Do you really think I’d risk that?” His face grew serious. “I know I can’t feel your touch, but I feel your love, Nora. Inside me. It means everything to me. I wish I could feel you the same way you feel me, but I have your love. Nothing will ever outweigh that. Some people go their entire lives never feeling the emotions you’ve given me. There is no regret in that.
I missed you, Angel. Not one day went by that I didn't feel you missing from my life. You haunted me to the point that I began to believe Hank had gone back on his oath and killed you. I couldn't escape you and I didn't want to. You tortured me, but it was better than losing you.
Right now, I had everything I could ask for. It wasn't a long list, but it was a very satisfying one, starting with the love of my life back in my arms.
I loved you long before you loved me. It's the only thing I have you beat at, and I'll bring it up every chance I get.
Right then, I wanted to go back in time and relive every moment with him. One more secret smile, one more shared laugh. One more electric kiss. Finding him was like finding someone I didn't know I was searching for. He’d come into my life too late, and now was leaving too soon. I remembered him telling me he’d give up everything for me. He already had.
Sometimes bad things have to happen before good things can.
Anything was better than nothing. Half-full was better than empty. Ignorance was the lowest form of humiliation and suffering.
Don't blame me. Tell your mom to move closer. Tell her there's this new club called civilization and you guys should join.
