aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe by benjamin alire sáenz

“Try it again,” I said. “Kiss me.” - “No,” he said. - “Kiss me.” - “No.” And then he smiled. “You kiss me.” - I placed my hand on the back of his neck. I pulled him toward me. And I kissed him. I kissed him. And I kissed him. And I kissed him. And I kissed him. And he kept kissing me back. 

happy birthday @dpriangray! ♥

“I want love that hurts. I want love that’s like fire. I want love that lets you remember why you love love and why you love the pain. Love that doesn’t hide and love that’s still so subtle that you have to take a closer look. I want love that lets me burn. Love, that lets the world burn, Liesa. Do you believe in such things?”

- Katherine, in an excerpt from a book I’ll never write [Girls like Girls and Boys like Boys]
