Its a blatant fact: Andrew Parrish and I were meant to meet on that bus in Kansas. Coincidence is just a safe conformist for fate.
"TELL ME HOW YOU FEEL! Be honest with me, with yourself!"
"I want you dammit! The thought of you leaving and never seeing you again tears-me-up-inside! I can't fucking breathe without you!"
"SAY IT! JUST SAY IT!"
"I want you to own me. I belong to you Andrew Parrish. I want you to own me"
So basically you won't be asking me to suck your dick for five hundred dollars or anything like that?"
And in the pharmacy at a local Walmart...
"Babe, did you find that yeast infection stuff? I mean are you even sure thats whats causing the itch?"
"Yeah baby I found it. What about you? Did you see if they have any extra small sized condoms?"
My hair is the kind of blonde some girls pay a salon a lot of money to have, and it stops just to the middle of my back. I admit I was lucky in the perfect hair department.
If you were to let me fuck you, you would have to let me own you.
"And you loved her?" Camryn looks over at me, letting her head fall to the side. I keep looking at the stars.
"Yeah, I loved her, but it wasn’t meant to be."
I’m wondering why she wants to know this; most girls I know snap into that jealousy-fueled mood-swing stuff that makes me want to cover my nuts when it comes to talking about exes. "Two years," I answer. "The break-up was mutual; we started checking out other people and I guess realized we didn’t love each other as much as we thought we did."
"Or, you just fell out of love."
"No, we were never in love to begin with."
"Oh, come on!" she urges, practically begging. Then an aggravated line deepens around her snarling nose and she thrusts my hand into hers and pulls me towards her. "Stop being a baby! If anybody knocks you over, I’ll personally kick their ass, alright?" Damon is grinning at me from the side. "Fine!" I say and head out with them, Natalie practically pulling my fingers out of the sockets.
He practically died when I said that I’d listen to Pink over The Rolling Stones, any day. I mean, I literally think I wounded him. He put his big hand over his heart and threw back his head in devastation and everything. It was very dramatic. And funny. I tried not to laugh, but it was hard not to when his hardened, over exaggerated face was practically smiling, too.
"I won't have a one-night stand with you, but I will make you come, if you let me."
"I think when you fall in love, like true love, it's love for life. All the rest is just experience and delusions."
What an AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL story!!!
"So often I sit around and think about life and wonder about every possible aspect of it. I wonder what the hell I'm doing here. Yesterday I thought about why I felt the need to get up at exactly the same time as the day before. Why? What compels any of us to do the things we do when deep down a part of us just wants to break free from it all?"
"I was taking the long road and Camryn was taking the road to nowhere and it just so happens that they led to the same place."
(and grab a box of tissues while you're ahead because you're going to need them...)
"The heart always wins out over the mind. The heart, although reckless and suicidal and a masochist all on its own, always gets its way."
"If you were to let me fuck you, you would have to let me own you."
"A woman who knows what she wants sexually, and isn't afraid to express it is so fucking hot, Camryn- Tell. Me. What. You. Want. Or, I won't give it to you."
"Just because one person's problem is less traumatic than another's doesn't mean they're required to hurt less."
"Two people unable to cry finally cry together and if the world ended today, we would be fulfilled."
