She turned to look at him, and he was already looking at her. “I’m going to miss you when I wake up,” she whispered, because she realized that she must have fallen asleep under the sun. Arin was too real for her imagination. He was a dream. “Don’t wake up,” he said.
“Then the realization that so much had happened after that meeting made her feel incredibly lucky suddenly. It was so easy for a man and woman to find each other, to find someone who would do, but for her to have found Carol– […].” Patricia Highsmith, The Price of Salt
I close my eyes, and I breathe her in, and I think about this home that belongs to neither of us, and I listen to the fire crackling, and I feel the warmth of the room and of her body, and we are okay. We are okay.
What she means:
Why would The 5th Wave movie completely take away all of the dynamic Ben Parish had? His motivation he received when he left his sister? Defending & protecting Sammy? Making and completing a difficult plan to fulfill his promise to Sammy? Being a successful squad leader despite the pressure? Overcoming the label of "weak and runner" to become the strongest leader and protector in the novel? Why demote such a character to 'the boy Cassie had a crush on in high-school'?
You were sitting on your couch reading a book when your phone lit up.
Cisco: hey gurrlll, what you up too?
You smiled to yourself, putting your book down so you could use both hands to text your boyfriend back.
(Y/n): nm, after today i just want sleep and never move again
It only took a moment for him to text back.
Cisco: I hear you Cariño. Buuuuutt, here’s what i was thinking. You, me, a pineapple pizza and some Jaws.
(Y/n): Ugh! That sounds amazing.
Cisco: Good, cause i’m right outside.
You scrunched your eyebrows together in confusion. “What?” Your head shot up as your door bell rang. You dropped your phone on the coffee table and walked over the couch to get to the door behind it.
Standing at the door of your apartment was your boyfriend Cisco Ramon, with a pineapple pizza in one hand and a copy of Jaws in the other.
“Cisco!” You exclaimed a wide smile on your face.
“Today was a rough day for everyone,” Cisco shrugged like him showing up was no big deal. “I know you said you wanted to be alone after today, but what kind of boyfriend would i be if i let you be miserable alone.” He walked past you into your apartment and set the pizza and the movie down on the coffee table. “So i thought, let’s be miserable together.”
“Oh Cisco,” you cooed, he was so amazing, you had no idea what you did to deserve someone as special as him. You wrapped your arms around his middle and pulled him close. “Thank you.” You pulled away just far enough so your noses touched. You stared into his kind, warm, brown eyes. The you moved close to give a small, but sweet kiss. “You are the best boyfriend in the multiverse.” You told him as you pulled away.
Cisco thought to himself for a moment. “That i am (Y/n), that i am.”
You laughed as he pulled you in for another kiss, tonight was going to be a great night.
A/n: i should have called this Cisco being a good boyfriend like… but i couldt resist the meme especially with the gif.
To my knowledge Cariño means my sweetheart in Spanish.
This is new, me giving Cisco some love instead of Harry. I kinda like it, who knows maybe i’ll branch out do other characters, maybe.
also can someone let me know if the gif is working, cause its frozen on my end….
annakendrick47I am about to get on a plane to start my book tour. I am feeling very weird about it. It feels icky and wrong to engage in self-promotion right now. Or even to push humor on people. (“Welp, in other news, my book!” - ugh.) But, two things: 1. I want to fulfill my obligations to be where I said I’d be, and not let anyone down. 2. My goals for this book were to make people laugh, to feel connected to people, and maybe get people to feel more connected to me. This is the final paragraph of my book (which obviously I hadn’t planned to share before it was out). I hope it illustrates just how excited I am to spend time with you gorgeous weirdos who are coming out to this tour over the next few weeks. I love you all so much. I have always been just a silly person, peddling my silly wares, and I hope that as I do that over the coming days I get to feel more and more inspired by you. (P.S. those two asterisks do have attached jokes; maybe by the 15th we’ll all be ready for a good laugh.) For now, what books are you guys currently reading? X
@annakendrick47 3 pics. Whole lotta words about feelings. But those are all I’ve got. X
I’ve realized lately that it doesn’t matter if you fell in love with him first, and it doesn’t matter if you could love him better than her. Because at the end of the day, you’re both tied around his knuckles and his wrists and only one of you stops hanging by a thread. Life doesn’t work the way you want it to; it’s never going to. But we keep wishing something from above will save us.
this sounds dumb but i always forget ACOMAF is a real book. i love it so much. like everything about it is just so ugh yes, and i’m just not sure how any book could be so perfect that it makes me confused as to whether my mind has just made it up or if it’s actually real?? i’m weird don’t judge me
Hi Leslie we don't talk much or anything but I just wanted to give you some book recs: The Infernal Devices by cassie clare (ugh its just so good and victorian england and ugh). THE FEVER SERIES BY KAREN MARIE MONING seriously these books sucked the life from me, Gone with the wind bc you will never love hate some one as much as you love hate Scarlett, the hating game by sally thorne, CAPTIVE PRINCE BY CS PASCAT, the wheel of time series for high fantasy kicks and giggles, also name of the wind
Hi Lucia, wow, long time no chat!
Of these I own three of them. Captive Prince, Wheel of Time (just first one) and Name of the Wind. Which one is the best? Or like… which one should I pick first?
(I was sitting in front of my tbr shelves earlier, btw. I like to pet them.)
“This girl: she bent reality around her like a lens bending light, she pleated it into so many flickering layers that you could never tell which one you were looking at, the longer you stared the dizzier you got.”
