Told you I'd be back with more!!
"You're safe. Don't be afraid." page 346, by Jared, after Kyle tries to kill Wanda and Jared makes sure he doesn't try again in th hospital. Jamie said the exact same thing when Wanda thought they were going to kill her during Jeb's tour and for some reason, that idea just stuck. Jared does care.
"Why do you love him?" page 370, by Jared, after the tribunal of Kyle trying to kill Wanda. Again, this line just got to me because Wanda never could answer it and it just stuck in my mind. I love Jared.
"Who's got the crush on a worm, bro? You gonna call me stupid?" page 376, by Kyle, after the game in the rec room. Ian's infatuation was finally known. And Kyle makes me laugh sometimes. I can just imagine him saying this line . . .
"The girl in there, that body doesn't belong to her. Keep your hands off it." page 383, by Jared, after the game when Ian takes Wanda to his room. It is such a powerful line and shows just how much Jared cares and believes them now.
"Please, Wanda. Please eat something." page 418, by Ian, after Wanda has been mourning for a while over the dead souls. It makes ME feel guilty to hear this line, how much pain Ian must be in to see Wanda doing this to herself. He is just Sooooooo caring.
"And I'll be there to bring you all back alive." page 474, by Jared, after Jamie is healed and they are talking about Wanda going out again. It seems so funny after all the reasons everyone else is going and then Jared just chimes in and says. I personally find it hysterical.
"Once we learned to love our human host, what hope did we sould have?" page 510, by Wanda, after she realizes how to save the Seeker. I think it is powerful and the epitome of the book.
"But I love YOU, doesn't that matter?" page 574, by Ian, after Wanda tells him that she needs to give Mel her body back. Shows how much Ian loves her and what he is willing to do to keep her with him.
"This body barely belonged to me or to Melanie- it belonged to him." page 579, by Wanda, during the second tribunal for Wanda's life. For me, this is so powerful and it is true. The body wasn't Melanie's to give, it was Jared's. Words can't express how powerful it was to me.
"I tried to hold on to the thought of Ian, but it was hard with Jared's hand touching me, with the smell in my nose. Like trying to make out the song of one violin when the entire percussion section was bashing away." page 590, by Wanda, when Jared finds her going to Doc to die. To me, it is the perfect analogy for what she is going through. Such a perfect description.
"You're you, and you're right where you belong." page 602, by Ian, after Wanda wakes up in Pet's body. Ian is so sweet and I can imagine him saying this one perfect line. Again, another epitome of the book.
