The Importance of Getting Revenge

Amanda Abram

Top 10 Best Quotes

“The day I fall in love with you for real will be the same day they open up a ski resort in Hell.” “Splendid. That can be our first date.” He flashed me a grin which, even in the dark, managed to sparkle.”

“Wow, your ego is massive. How do you manage to walk around all day without toppling over from the weight of it all?”

“What are you thinking about?” he asked, a curious look on his face. “What?” I had been aware of the fact I was staring at him, but for some silly reason I didn't think he would notice. “Um, well...I was just asking myself why it is that everyone here is staring at us.” It was true. As I said it, I noticed that everyone dancing around us, and even some people eating at their tables, were sneaking glances over at us. He glanced around to see what I was talking about. “I think I can explain that.” “Oh yeah?” “Yeah.” He returned his gaze to mine. “Look around, Lex. Not one person in this entire restaurant is younger than our parents.” “So?” “So, we are reminding them of what it was like to be young and in love. They think it's sweet, and that's why they're looking at us.”

“Talk?" "Yeah," I said, rather condescendingly. "You know, that thing you do where you open your mouth and words come out?”

“I was wondering if I could talk to you?” I fiddled with one of the drawstrings of my hoodie [...] “Talk?” He stared up at me with a blank expression. I hated blank expressions, because people only used them when they didn’t want to show what they were really feeling. And I really sucked at trying to figure out what people were feeling. “Yeah,” I said, rather condescendingly. “You know, that thing you do where you open your mouth and words come out?”

“I hit him playfully on the shoulder. “You make me sound like such a pig.” He threw his hands up in the air. “Well, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck— ” “—it’s a pig?” I finished for him. “Exactly.”

“His gaze moved to my hair and it looked as though he was trying to suppress a laugh. Instantly, I brought my hand up to my head and tried once again to flatten the mess of snarls. When I realized it was a lost cause, I just sighed and gave up. What did it matter, anyway? It was just Jase standing there in front of me. I had no reason to want to impress him. “That’s a good look on you,” he said, not bothering to hide his grin. “Instead of ‘just rolled out of bed’, it’s like ‘just rolled over by a bed.”

“Don't go throwing stones in your glass house, because you're bound to get cut.”

“Can we get this makeup thing over before we’re late for school?” “Oh, right.” She jumped up from the bed and opened up her backpack. I hated wearing makeup, which was why I never wore any. So needless to say, I wasn't looking forward to this. She held out a tube of something for me to see. “This will help conceal the dark circles under your eyes. And this,” she said, showing me another tube, “will help to conceal the blotchy spots on your cheeks.” I grunted. “Do you have anything that will help conceal the hump on my back?”

“real boyfriend pays for dates. A real boyfriend doesn’t ignore you at school and hang out with his friends instead. A real boyfriend gives you compliments and tells you that you’re beautiful. A real boyfriend doesn’t dump you for some girl he doesn’t even know, after you’ve given him three years of your life. You let that guy get away with too much, and he never once thought it would be a good idea to show you how grateful he was to have you. And that’s why I feel sorry for you.”
