God, ' she butted her head into his chest, 'I'm so angry with myself.' 'What? Why?' 'Because ... this is my mess I dragged you into, and you don't deserve any of it, and I feel like I'm ruining you with every single thing I say, and... ' she lifted her head, eyes shimmering, 'I'm a selfish, selfish bitch. Because all I can think about, is whether I'll regret it in three hours, when we walk out of here, and I never know, not even once, what it's like to be with a really nice guy.

today, I'm writing about the extraordinary; those 'moments' in life that reach us, and change us. Those moments take place all the time, really - it's just that we're taught not to notice. We're taught that whims are for the foolish; that instinct and passion are more akin to fairy tales than reality; that they won't get us very far, and everyone would laugh at us if they knew what we really held close to our hearts. It's a lie we allow ourselves, and it's understandable. But it's simply not true.

How we take it for granted - those trivial conversations; those mundane moments that we think hold no meaning. We never realise how much we rely on the ordinariness of everyday life. When love is gone - when our entire world is gone - only then do we understand those moments are what we live for.
If you're waiting for me to declare my undying love for you, I can't do that yet, blood-bond or no blood-bond. If you think I'm the swoony type of heroine you find in romance novels, who'll fall into your arms just because you saved me from an alternate reality or whatever, get ready to leave empty handed, because I don't want to be caught.
Elena glanced up at him, taking in his words. 'If you get rid of your fear? You know, I never look at you as someone who's afraid.' 'That's because every time you look at me, I'm looking right back, and the only time I'm not afraid, is when I see you. And I do see you, Elena. I see everything you've been through, from so young - how you struggled through it; how you never let it destroy your hope and faith - and I'm afraid of nothing." (Karl and Elena)
She had forced herself to learn to read - picked up bits and pieces, here and there, from the very few teachers who had been patient with her; from looking at words while out and about; from television, and from friends. And to avoid the shouting and drug-induced moaning, and the row of male visitors her mum would entertain, she would barricade herself in her room - there'd been no lock - and lose herself in books.

I don't think of faith as something you need to have in the world, or in some deity or religion or whatever; I think having faith is about trusting in yourself, and trusting that you'll know what to do when life gets complicated. I'm not scared of complications. But I am scared of walking away from something I want with every fibre of my being, without even trying to have it.
Do you remember what we just did? Please tell me you remember what we just did." She briefly toyed with the idea of lying and saying no, just to see the look on his face, but she'd had enough of having her brain played with - it wouldn't be too sporting to do the same to him. "Yes, I remember, and don't you think for one minute that just because you had me on my back screaming I was 'yours', " she waved four fingers in quotation marks in front of his face, "that it gives you any kind of ownership over me, because it doesn't." He looked annoyed, then relieved, then he laughed. "Yeah, whatever, baby.

He took the pen and book from her and faltered. 'Just write anything - anything trivial that won't matter if it comes to pass.' 'Erm... ' God, he was useless at this. Elena's hair turned blue. 'Hey!' 'What?' 'I don't want blue hair! What the hell did you write that for?' 'It seemed trivial.' 'Blue hair - blue? That's trivial? What if I can't undo it?' Karl stared at her blankly. His throat went dry. He felt like a total dickhead, but writing really wasn't his strong point, so he went for humour instead and flashed her a grin. 'I was going to write that all your clothes fall off, but figured you may have a problem with that. This was the second thing that came to mind.' (Karl and Elena)

I'm hoping you end up happily married to the man of your dreams and have a hoard of beautiful kids that'll keep you on your toes by turning your neighbours into various types of pond-life." He then shot her his signature grin. "But if it happens to be me, then I wouldn't say no." (Karl to Elena in The Witching Pen)
