And she had to smile—although the expression didn’t last long. “Under different circumstances,” she said, “I really could have fallen for you.” She didn’t expect a reply from him. But then his voice, so deep and low, weaved its way through the darkness to her. “Under different circumstances, I would have fallen even harder for you. And not regretted my heart’s tumble for a moment.”

“Emma Thompson, ca. Sense and Sensibility: You must cease and desist all such lustful thoughts, you beast. Emma Stone, ca. Zombieland: Over your dead body. Julia Roberts, ca. Pretty Woman: Big mistake. Huge. Cardi B, in any situation: Bitch, please. All of those worked. Unfortunately, what was more likely to come out of her mouth was straight-up Jennifer Lawrence: I volunteer as tribute.”

“Apex? The male with the dead stare and the bad past walked in with a bored expression on his face—and a severed hand… in his hand? The vampire lifted the body part. “I borrowed this from one of the guards. After we’re done getting you out, I’m going to slap him with it. Assuming he hasn’t bled out.”

“Among all the phrases in all the languages in all the worlds, there was one that never lost its luster, no matter how many times it was spoken. "I love you" never got worn out.”
