Welcome to Quote-tastic, which comes from the ever-awesome Anna at Herding Cats & Burning Soup! The point is to share a quote that grabbed you every Monday. I hope to be able to do this as many Mondays as possible. ^_^
This week I'm featuring...
Tease by Sophie Jordan
"I almost didn't come to this tonight, you know. You don't answer your door or respond to my texts. You made it pretty clear that you don't want to see me anymore."
I closed my eyes in a long, pained blink. "Why did you come then?" I whispered. "How did you even know about this?"
"Pepper mentioned it."
"Of course she did," I snapped, not having very kind thoughts of my roommate just then. She was supposed to be on my side.
"You almost had me convinced, you know."
A small shiver ran through me as I searched his face, so unbearably close I could see the tiny flecks of gold in his eyes. Our breaths panted, mingling between us. Even though a whisper inside me warned that I should just let the subject drop, I demanded, "Convinced of what?"
"That I should quit. That I should give up on you. That's what you wanted me to do." He paused, letting the words sink in the thick air between us. "But now I've seen your painting and I know better."
I shook my head, a protest forming on my lips, but the words never made it out.
His mouth crushed mine, slanting over my lips and robbing me of any coherent thought.
