I think that the most difficult thing is allowing yourself to be loved, so receiving the love and feeling like you deserve it is a pretty big struggle. I suppose that’s what I’ve learned recently, to allow myself to be loved.
She was clutching his arm as she stood on her
tip-toes; cold lips pressed against his hot ones.
Funny thing is that she thought his lips would
be cold; ice cold just like the rays of his cold gun.
But they were hot; burning hot against her and
for a moment everything silenced. The noise, the humming of the Oculus
She felt only his lips on hers and the steady
beating of his heart. It was so bittersweet. Something that she wanted for
longer than she would admit and now that it was finally happening…
She held back tears as she lifted her eyes to
connect with his.
She couldn’t say it out loud.
The pain was overwhelming; spreading from her
lips all the way to end of her toes and fingers.
So she turned away; grabbed Mick and left.
“I’m so sorry.” She wanted to say. But she

Sometimes it was her past and sometimes it was that day.

up in front of her eyes.

the Waverider; mouth parted and a hand reaching out for her.

walked out of the room.
thought of going to the training room to blow off some steam but she knew that
she would have to shower afterwards and the sound would wake up Leonard for
sure. She turned towards the kitchen; walking over the fridge and grabbing a
bottle of mineral water. And then her eyebrows furrowed as she realized that
this whole time Mick and Ray had been sitting on the table, beers in their

“Why are you up anyway, Ray?” The man gave Mick a puppy-eye look; an indication
that he really didn’t wanna answer.

a laugh and Sara felt sympathy for Ray. The beds on the Waverider weren’t
designed for two… Let alone four.

turned to Ray. “Maybe you can just ask Gideon to fabricate you a real bed if
worry about it. It’s just for a few more days and then we’re back in Central

twins’ arrivals and he had agreed to stay on the Waverider until she was a week
before her due date, before going to settle on Central City for good. “Besides,
now is the best time to bond with Mick!”

Mick almost choked on his beer. “Okay got it… Not pregnant.”

I really have to thank my parents, for creating such a handsome kid! My optimistic character is also my strength, everyone says that I am constantly smiling. Come to think of it, I think don’t have any strengths (Laughs) I also have a passionate side, and is adventurous, wants to do everything first, and will keep persevering till the end. Once I have set my mind to achieving something, I am the kind who will continue till I accomplish it. I also like to take initiative on things. As expected, I have too many strengths! (Laughs)
Okay heres a warning: this isnt super interesting but i wanted to post something for Legend’s 5th bday (WOW!). please dont feel obligated to read this(!!!). HAPPY LEGEND WEEK COUSINS!!!!!!
has been with me for about a fourth of my life. It came out five years
ago (November of 2011) but I read it in 2012. It was one of the very
first books that made me cry, so obviously I have loved the story and
characters since I picked the book up. Within the first page I was
completely hooked. I used to want to be a secret agent when I grow up,
but the whole idea still interests me. So when I read the little summary
of the back cover at my middle school book fair, I was veryyyyy
excited. I read Legend so quickly but reread it at least three more
times. I bought Prodigy the day it was released in January. I also
sobbed at the end of that one as well (very nice job Marie) and waited
FOREVER (lol like 10 months) for Champion to come out. (I made my
Instagram account after I read Prodigy actually!)
Lu’s writing has inspired me so so much. After reading her books,
writing really interested me for some reason. She just has a voice in
her books that i fell in love with and it made me want to try to write
something hopefully at least similar to hers. So, if I hadn’t read
Legend, I may not even have this hobby.
is a book I think everyone can enjoy. It isn’t a book specifically
suggested (i guess) for girls or boys or a certain age (OKAY sure mostly
young adults read it but there are also a lot of adults out there that
have loved the books too). The endless themes from this trilogy are so
so so important in today’s world, and I think it’s awesome Marie is
trying to help educate people on these topics.
is no reason NOT to love Legend. Except maybe that Marie Lu breaks your
heart after each novel. So this is what Legend means to me. <3
