“I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect.

“Daemon’s stare was so concentrated I took an unintentional step back, but we didn’t break eye contact. A craving unfurled deep in my stomach, shooting through me like heated lightning, and that-that was the kind of feeling you couldn’t force, couldn’t even replicate if you wanted.” Pg. 242 Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“I wanted him to go away, to disappear. I wanted his very presence wiped clean from this earth. I wished for it more than anything I have ever desired. Every fiber of my being was centered on him. I pulled everything within me: every fear, every year I’d shed for Dad, and every moment in my life where I was a bystander.” Pg. 319-320 Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“I could-I would try, even though deep down, I did want to be with him. But I wanted him to want me, not because we were stuck together or because somehow we were connected. I’d always liked the glimpses of the real him. That Daemon I could be with-I could love. But that Daemon never stayed around long, pushed out by his never-ending duty to protect his family and race. Saddened by that, I pressed my lips together.” Pg. 334 Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
