When she was gone Thorne let out a low whistle. "I know, I know. She seems a little" -crossing his eyes, he swirled both fingers around his ears- "but it's really part of her charm, once you get to know her."
"I knew they would kill me when they found out, but…” He struggled for words, releasing a sharp breath. “I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you."
Thorne: "A captain always knows where his ship is. It's like a psychic bond."
"If only we had a captain here."
I realized I would rather DIE... Because I betray them... Than live... Because I betray... YOU
“Her mind emptied of everything but the gusting wind and how fragile Wolf looked in that heartbeat, like one movement could break him open.”
“She did not know that the wolf was a wicked sort of animal, and she was not afraid of him.”
“I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you.”
“We met less than a week ago and in that time I've done nothing but lie and cheat and betray you. I know. But if you give me a chance...all I want is to protect you. To be near you. For as long as I'm able.”
“I know what it's like when you can't get no one to listen to you. When what you say don't matter. I half think every girl knows what it's like to be silenced.”
