Nora Sakavic Quotes 84204

You never explained the change of heart."
"Maybe I got tired of seeing Kevin bend. Or maybe it was the zombies. A few weeks back you and Renee argued contingency plans for a zombie apocalypse. She said she'd focus on survivors. You said you'd go back for some of us. Five of us. You weren't counting Abby or Coach. Since you trust Renee to handle the rest of the team, I'm guessing the last spot is for Dobson.

Nora Sakavic Quotes 237018

A group of people shouldered their way up to the bar counter at Neil's back, pushing him into Andrew. Andrew didn't budge beneath his weight. He was something solid to lean against, something violent and fierce and unmoving. Neil couldn't remember what it felt like to have someone hold him up. It was terrifying and liberating all at once. His life was out of his control now; he was giving it to Andrew and hoping Andrew would keep it safe. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 259975

For the first time Neil appreciated Andrew's apathy. In a stadium gone mad and with too much on the line tonight, Neil finally saw Andrew as the crucial eye of the storm. Because Andrew refused to get caught up in this, he was the only person on the court with a cool head. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 327120

He looked at Kevin again. Kevin didn't recognize him, but maybe some part of him remembered the boy he'd met so many years ago. Neil's past was locked in Kevin's memories. It was proof he existed, same as this game they both played. Kevin was proof Neil was real. Maybe Kevin was also the best chance Neil had at knowing when to leave again. If he lived, practiced, and played with Kevin, he'd know when Kevin started to get suspicious. — Nora Sakavic

--
The words sounded like a desperate prayer. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 476477

Neil thought about Renee's bruised knuckles, Dan's fierce spirit, and Allison holding her ground on the court a week after Seth's death.

Look. Shit happened. Shit's going to keep happening. You don't need me to tell your life isn't fair. You're here because you know it isn't.

Nora Sakavic Quotes 574742

No one talked about it, but somehow they all ended up in Neil and Matt's room. Matt and Aaron shoved the couch out of the way, and the girls showed up a minute later with blankets. The living room wasn't meant to sleep nine bodies but somehow they made a workable nest out of it. Foxes came and went as they grabbed pillows and changed into pajamas. For a moment, though, Neil and Matt were alone. Matt gave Neil's shoulder a careful squeeze. — Nora Sakavic

Oh, Neil, unpredictable as he is unreal. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 616618

Andrew was watching him, still perched on the edge like he had a death wish. Neil wasn't sure why he did it, but he plucked Andrew's cigarette off the sidewalk and stuck it between his lips.

His thoughts should have kept him up all night, but with his friends this close Neil couldn't worry about anything. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1285778

You know, I get it. Being raised as a superstar must be really, really difficult for you. Always a commodity, never a human being, not a single person in your family thinking you're worth a damn off the court - yeah, sounds rough. Kevin and I talk about your intricate and endless daddy issues all the time. I know it's not entirely your fault that you are mentally unbalanced and infected with these delusions of grandeur, and I know you're physically incapable of holding a decent conversation with anyone like every other normal human being can, but I don't think any of us should have to put up with this much of your bullshit. Pity only gets you so many concessions, and you used yours up about six insults ago. So please, please, just shut the fuck up and leave us alone. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1297720

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1358407

Family means something different with us because it has to. It's not about blood. It's not even about who we like. It's about who Andrew's willing to protect. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1375222

They never pried, but it took him weeks to realize they didn't have to. They didn't ask for secrets; they settled for the breadcrumb truths of day to day life. They knew he hated vegetables but loved fruit, that his favorite color was gray, and that he didn't like movies or loud music. They were things Neil understood only in terms of survival, but his teammates hoarded these insights like gold. They were piecing Neil together and building a real person around all of his lies. They found the parts of him no disguise could change. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1398303

He straightened and turned to find Andrew had shifted closer. There was nowhere for Neil to stand except up against Andrew, but somehow Neil didn't mind. They'd been apart for seven weeks but Neil keenly remembered why he'd stayed. He remembered this unyielding, unquestioning weight that could hold him and all of his problems up without breaking a sweat. For the first time in months he could finally breathe again. It was such a relief it was frightening; Neil hadn't meant to lean on Andrew so much. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1433704

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1468616

You were amazing." He — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1716145

Who said 'please' that made you hate the word so much?"
Andrew gazed at him in silence for a minute. "I did. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1725357

Four of Dan's sisters had made it. They wore white sundresses they'd altered so three spelled out FOX. The fourth sported a fox paw that was already starting to lose a toe pad. They practically crushed Dan, smothering her with a group hug before fawning over her. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1738896

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1884639

Dan's grin was approving. "Most of us are. Some of us are like boys, though, and have delicate egos. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1889382

You have a problem wherein you only invest your time and energy into worthless pursuits."
"This isn't worthless."
"There is no 'this'. This is nothing."
"And I am nothing. And as you've always said, you want nothing. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1898446

The buzzer went off again, and Neil's heart stopped. The ringing in his ears wasn't all him. His teammates were screaming, wordless war cries of disbelief and victory. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1930595

It's always been 'go'. It's always been 'lie' and 'hide' and 'disappear'. I've never belonged anywhere or had the right to call anything my own. But Coach gave me keys to the court, and you told me to stay. You gave me a key and called it home. I haven't had a home since my parents died. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 1978231

Exy was a bastard sport, an evolved sort of lacrosse on a soccer-sized court with the violence of ice hockey, and Neil loved every part of it. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2001553

I've been a problem for nineteen years. I'm too tired to be one tonight. Just get me out of here." An — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2044286

It's not really about the food. It's about family. Not necessarily the one we were born with, but the one we chose. This one," Nicky emphasized, gesturing between them. "The people we trust to be part of our lives. The people we care about. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2128654

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2186190

With that, Andrew caught Neil's face in his hands and leaned in. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2242064

Anytime the Foxes mentioned Andrew's upcoming sobriety or Andrew's name popped up in write-ups on the team's performance at games, the focus was on what a danger he was. People talked about his trial and how it saved them from Andrew. No one said what they were doing to save Andrew from himself. — Nora Sakavic

Nora Sakavic Quotes 2270679

The only one I'm interested in is you. — Nora Sakavic
