"don't be afraid," I murmured. "we belong together."
I was absolutely overwhelmed by the truth of my own words.
this moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it.
his arms wrapped around me, holding me against him ...
it felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.
"forever," he agreed.
when you loved the one who was killing you,
it left you no options.
how could you run, how could you fight,
when doing so would hurt that beloved one?
if your life was all you had to give,
how could you not give it?
if it was someone you truly loved?
