Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1386832

Brannicks and magic and hell, oh my,"

~ Sophie — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1927130

I called on Dex first. 'Um, yes. We have this friend, Izzy Brannick? She's about your height, has your color hair, and she is a normal, sane-type person. And you, Crazy Lady, seem to have replaced her. Can we have Izzy back now please? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 681652

I should say upfront that I have never been in a cellar in my life. In fact, I can see no reason why anyone should ever go into a cellar unless there is wine involved. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1509627

Nice car, asshat!" one of them shouted before they did some kind of fist-bumping move that made me want to bump my fist, too.
Right into their faces. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 635125

Don't even think about it, Mercer. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 652680

You're going to be okay," I said, but my voice was wavering and I was shaking. "It's probably not even that bad, and you're just being a big drama queen as usual. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 138978

His voice was low, and I think he would've been hot if he weren't radiating that air of I Am Super Evil
No, Really
And Not In The Sexy Way. — Rachel Hawkins

Cal's glance fell on our joined hands, and he turned away. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1443408

What do you think we're hunting tonight?"
I twisted and pulled at my backpack until it was in front of me, then opened it. More silver stakes. Little glass bottles of holy water. And, oh my God, was that a gun?
My knees were wobbling as I zipped up the Bag O'Death and gingerly dropped it in the grass.
"What's wrong?" Izzy asked.
"Um, a lot? There is seriously so much wrongness going on right now. Namely, the fact that you people are teenagers with bags of guns."
Izzy stiffened a little at that. "We're not kids," she spit out. "We're Brannicks."
Sighing, I shoved my hands in my pockets. "I get that, but look, Izzy, I can't kill a werewolf. I know werewolves. I lived with some, and they're ... well, they're gross and slobbery and super scary, but I can't kill one. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1607124

What else did he say?"
"Just that. He's going to The Eye, and he's sorry." She screwed up her face. "Oh, and some weird thing about telling you that he still feels the same way about that tent, and he promises to say it to you in person next time he sees you."
I gave a bark of laughter that was more of a sob, "That asshat," I blubbered.
Elodie nodded in sympathy. "Such an asshat."
When I'd left Thorne Abbey, I'd held Archer's sword and had a sense that somehow things would turn out all right. Please, I thought. The rest of my magic is back, so let me have that power, too.
But there was no reply except the whistling of the wind. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1620411

I knew."
"What?"
"I knew what you were then, Sophie. Your dad told me before the betrothal. And you told me about your grandmother, and what happened to your grandfather."
I shook my head. "Then, why?"
Cal took his time before answering. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 228397

He ran his thumb over my lower lip, sending a flurry of sparks through me. "Good-bye, Sophie." -Cal — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 2225553

Oh my God, you so should have fainted, and then Cal could have caught you and, like, carried you up the staircase. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1303477

Suddenly, both Archer's and Jenna's hands clamped down on my wrists. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1288387

I'd assumed he'd be old and burly with a side order of crotchety. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 418630

I blew out a breath. "Dad, this is a total cluster ... um, a mess."
He flashed me a wry smile. "I think the word you were about to use is probably the best summation of the current situation. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 745437

Well,if there's nothing else you ladies need in the library, Sophie, would you care to accompany me on a walk about the grounds?
I wondered if there were ever times when Dad didn't sound like he'd just escaped from a Jane Austen novel. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 88423

I sat up so fast I practically broke the sound barrier, but it was Cal standing in my doorway, not Archer. I heaved a huge sigh, one of relief, and not even a little bit of disappointment.
Of course, once I'd wrapped my mind around the fact that it was Cal and not Archer standing in my bedroom, it dawned on me that Cal was standing in my bedroom. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 412233

I was supposed to watch you, yeah. They thought it was weird that Atherton would send his own kid to Hecate, so we wanted to keep an eye on you. No pun intended. (Archer) — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 770796

I felt like there should have been rainbows and rose petals in their wake or something.
Ugh.That was catty.
Jenna deserved rainbows and rose petals, I reminded myself as I flopped back on my bed, Dad's book bumping painfully against my sternum. After everything she'd been through, Jenna had earned an eternity of nothing but good stuff. So why did seeing her with Vix make me want to brain myself with Demonologies: A History? I looked at the nightstand again and sighed. Then I opened the heavy book and tried to make myself read.
For the next few hours I made a valiant attempt to get through Chapter One.
For a book that was supposedly about fallen angels running around and creating havoc with their super-awesome dark "magycks," it was awfully boring, and all the weird spellings definitely didn't help. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 501572

Still, we made it back to the corn mill, and even though it felt like a dwarf with a chisel had taken up permanent residence in my frontal lobe, I managed to stagger all the way back to the house. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1908039

We're going to open this bookcase and remove the grimoire."
Now I wasn't surprised so much as shocked. "No way," I shot back. "This thing is enchanted to hell and back-maybe literally."
Dad closed his eyes and took a deep breath, like he was having to physically restrain himself from yelling. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1956279

We could argue in front of our lockers all dramatically," I said. "That's something I saw a lot at human high schools."
He squeezed me in a quick hug. "Yes! Now that sounds like a good time. And then I could come to your house in the middle of the night and play music really loudly under your window until you took me back."
I chuckled. "You watch too many movies. Ooh, we could be lab partners!"
"Isn't that kind of what we were in Defense?"
"Yeah, but in normal high school, there would be more science, less kicking each other in the face."
"Nice. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1049059

Perhaps we should explore some other options before swanning off to Ireland," Dad said, pushing his glasses up. "After all, Sophie, you've been through quite the ordeal."
"I'll nap on the plane. Look, we are dealing with the possibility of an army of demons. I don't know about you guys, but those words are right up there with 'root canal' and 'school on Saturdays' in terms of things that terrify me. Were already three weeks behind. We don't have time to just sit here and explore options or read more books or listen to more half-assed prophecies from this jerk," I said, pointing to Torin. He made a gesture that I think was the old-timey version of flipping me off.
"So, yeah," I continued. "Maybe this is a totally stupid idea. But if there's even a chance one of us can get into the underworld, then we have to take it."
"Okay, I do like you," Finley said, flashing me a grin. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1091915

I was dead. That was really the only explanation I had for the sensation that I was lying in a comfy bed, cool, clean-smelling sheets pulled up to my chin, and a soft hand stroking my hair.
That was nice. Being dead seemed pretty sweet, all things considered. Especially if ti meant I got to nap for all eternity. I snuggled deeper into the covers. The hand on my hair moved to my back, and I realized someone was singing softly. The voice was familiar, and something about it made my chest ache. Well, that was to be expected. Angels' songs would be awfully poignant.
"'I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you ... '" the voice crooned.
I frowned. Was that really an appropriate song for the Heavenly Host to be-
Realization crashed into me. "Mom! — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 385202

Can we go somewhere less ... transitory to discuss this? he asked, gesturing around the hallway. I felt like I might burst into tears all over again. Transitory. God, I'd missed him so much. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 83298

Unlike some people, I don't have the urge to go sticking my fingers in it. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 721793

But then you heard Sophie was coming to Hecate, and you decided to stay," Lara finished, and her lips twisted in the triumphant smile I'd seen on Mrs. Casnoff's face dozens of times. I stood there, frozen in place, as she turned back to me and said, "Mr. Callahan gave up a chance to travel the world with the Council so that he could be little more than a janitor on Graymalkin Island. For you. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 986748

I was speechless. Elodie Parris, defending me? Maybe in all this chaos, hell actually had frozen over. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1621611

Whoa, I'm your girlfriend now?"
Archer shrugged. "We've tried to kill each other, fought ghouls, and kissed a lot. I'm pretty sure we're married in some cultures. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 856334

I usually feel pretty screamy when someone attacks my school. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 2050510

But he'll just say a bunch of smart-ass stuff before maybe telling you anything real. That's what he does."
Standing, I said, "I think I can hold my own in smart-assery." I jogged up the basement steps, determined to go have a little word with Mirror Boy. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 243428

Cal, Archer, Jenna and I managed to achieve something truly impressive: the *four-way* glance. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 155187

Harper, did you just ... did you just throw a pen at Liz?"
"Oh my gosh, no, Mrs. Ford! I was just ... um ... writing really fast because there was so much information to take in, and I had, like, some lotion? On my hands? Anyway the pen flew out of my hand and hit Liz — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 157136

It's always going to get better someday. Sometime in the future, things won't be so crazy. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 185379

I know it looks vaguely unsanitary and potentially scandalous, Nana, but I promise that Izzy and I are only pursuing noble...pursuits. We've even got a chaperone! Izzy, who was that woman who went into the cave?'
I blanked, not sure how to describe Maya. I settled on, "My...also my Nana. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 190295

I left out the part about Cal I being betrothed. Jenna was already practically wearing a Team Cal T-shirt. I didn't want to give her any more ammunition. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 295565

Ugh. A club for Prodigium? That conjured up images of way more velvet and dry ice and angst than I was up for. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 343368

Suddenly it occurred to me that maybe the Itineris didn't suck as much as I'd thought. Something had scared this werewolf, and there were only a few things I could think of that could do that. Scary Irish Prodigium hunters? Way up on that list.
"Elodie-" I started to say, but before I got anything else out, she winked out like a bitchy firefly.
The werewolf and I were plunged into darkness. I cursed, and the werewolf made a growl that sounded like the same word. For a few moments, just long enough to make me think that maybe I'd been wrong, the woods were quiet and still.
And then everything erupted at once. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 376543

He gently pried my hand off his arm. "I have to," he said softly. He went to turn away, and then stopped, like maybe he was reconsidering. But instead of agreeing to come back to the Itineris with me, he reached out, cupped my face, and brought his lips to mine.
I was so shocked that I literally froze in place, one hand hovering in the air next to Cal's shoulder. The kiss was brief
just a little too long to be considered chaste
but when he pulled away, all I could do was stare at him, my mouth slightly agape. He ran his thumb over my lower lip, sending a tiny flurry of sparks through me. "Goodbye, Sophie. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 385358

I wondered if there were any rooms in all of Thorne Abbey that wouldn't leave me gawking in wonder at the doorway. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 420637

This was a boy who could make a school uniform look good. What he did to formal wear was damn near criminal. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 439570

Since when did David Stark have biceps? How did you get any muscle tone when all you did was type and be annoying? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 482827

I just ... I wanted to say thank you. For trying to save Finley and for ... I don't know. Being nicer to us than you had to be."
I smiled at her, and for a second, we did that "are we gonna hug?" dance, both of us moving in and out, our arms held at our sides. Good to know awkwardness apparently ran in the family. In the end, we just kind of patted each other's shoulders before Izzy went back downstairs, and I headed into my room. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 496003

It just seems like overkill when you already have a dagger and I have superpowerful magic at my disposal."
"'Superpowerful?'"He stood up, a gold chain dangling from his fingers. "Let me remind you of two words, Mercer: Bad. Dog. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 539125

I suppressed a shudder at the image. Blood is so very gross to me. If I
give myself a paper cut, I nearly hyperventilate. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 541271

So I sat on the grimy floor of an eighteenth-century corn mill and watched my fiance heal the guy I loved.
"Wow," I muttered. "I'm gonna have one messed-up 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation' essay when I get back to Hex Hall. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 562368

So why were you with her?"
"She was my assignment."
"From The Eye?"
"No, from the Boy Scouts. That Witch Dating badge just kept eluding me."

Hawkins, Rachel (2011-03-01). Demonglass (Hex Hall Book 2) (p. 255). Disney. Kindle Edition. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 601369

Cal was dressed in a Hex Hall uniform. The blazer was a little tight on his broad shoulders, more so when he shrugged. "It was mine.Mrs. Casnoff brought it with her. I don't really, uh, do costumes. Figured this was a good compromise."
I'd thought no one but Archer could make that uniform look good, but Cal proved me wrong. The bright blue was nice against his tan skin and golden hair, and he looked younger. There was a dimple in his cheek as he smiled at me-something I'd never noticed before. "You make a good Hecate," he said.
I would have snorted and made a sarcastic comment, but there was something in his eyes that made me just say, "Thanks. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 633531

I wish we could go to the movies. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 772490

Hey,"he said, taking in my disheveled appearance. "Why are you up so early?"
"Oh, I was just, you know, exercising."I jogged in place for a second before realizing that I probably looked like a mental patient. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 794611

We're not in shock," I told her, even as I clutched the material tighter around my neck.
"Well, you all look awful," she said.
"Hell does wreak havoc on the skin," Archer quipped, but I could tell his heart wasn't in it. Under the table, I put my hand on his knee, and he covered my fingers with his own. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 836324

At her door, Jenna stopped. "Soph, I really am
"
"Jenna, if you say sorry one more time, I'm going to punch you in your tiny pink head. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 842658

The Bed Thing had happened two months ago. I'd wanted to move my bed, and decided to use magic to do it.Instead of scooting over a few feet, the bed had gone flying out the window, taking a big chunk of the wall with it.
Mrs. Casnoff had not been amused.
Especially since the Bed Thing had followed the Doritos Incident. Jenna had wanted chips; when I'd tried to make them appear, I'd flooded the hallway with Doritos. There were still traces of cheese dust in the floorboards. Before that, there was That Time With The Lotion (the less said about that, the better). — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 868776

In all my old school pictures I was always the one standing alone in the back with my hair in my face. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 885948

It's beautiful," I said for what had to be the third time. "It's just awfully ... elaborate."
Lysander made a disgusted sound and threw up his hands. "It should be elaborate! You're meant to be a goddess!"
I had no idea how to reply to that, but Nick saved me. Leaping to his feet, he said, "And you do look like a goddess, Sophie." He took my hand and pulled me off the platform, spinning me. "See? Embrace your goddessness."
Nick may have been a weirdo and a half, but I chuckled. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 908673

Make sure you take lots of pictures, and if you come back using words like 'queue' or 'lorry', I'll be very upset. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 947715

This is bad," was all I could manage to say.
"Yeah, I kind of picked up on that too."
"No,I mean really bad. Like, to a level I didn't know badness could reach."
Archer crouched down near the lip of the crater, the flickering blue light playing in his eyes. "It gets worse."
"What,does this put also eat kittens? How much worse can it be? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 954806

I was just reaching for my towel when I heard a muffled thump from my bedroom. My fingers froze and the hair on the back of my neck prickled. In scary movies, this was always the part where the naked girl called out, "Hello?" or "Who's there?" or something equally stupid. But this naked girl wasn't announcing her presence to anyone. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 956801

You know, 'help me, Sophie Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 973613

Thanks to all the moving around Mom and I had done, I hadn't had a birthday party since I was eight years old. That had been at Chuck E. Cheese. Something told me the Council had something more elaborate in mind.
"They don't need to do that," I said, shoving my hands into my pockets. "Especially with all that's going on right now."
Nick flashed me a wolfish grin. "That's Prodigium for you. Very 'fiddle while Rome burns. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 973903

Do you remember the section on controlling demons in Demonologies? I believe it's in chapter five."
"Um ... no."
Irritation flashed over his face. "Honestly, Sophie, I gave you that book for a reason."
"And I'm really sorry, but it's long and boring,and can we just skip to the part where you tell me what it says? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 997854

Whoever used to hang out here, they must have been pretty tiny," I joked.
Dex turned his flashlight on me. "Um, Iz, pretty sure they weren't standing up," he said, and I blushed. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1006549

So the Casnoffs are at Hex Hall. Probably with however many demons they've managed to create. What are they doing there? Throwing a hellacious slumber party? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1026262

Our lips met, and if this kiss wasn't as ... thorough as the first one, it felt bigger somehow. More important. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1055757

You swore.You swore to my father that you would do everything in your power to protect Anastasia's and my interests in Hecate.
Even I could have told her that was a bad move.Dad just looked pissed. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1093502

Is this about Archer? Please don't tell me you're upset about us, because ... I mean, you're dead."
She floated closer to me, until she was right in my face. At first I thought she was going to spit ectoplasm on me or something, but then I saw her lips moving again. I wasn't an expert lip-reader, but she was close enough and speaking slowly enough that I was able to make out what she said. "I told you," her pale lips mouthed, "that I'd haunt your ass."
I stared at her mouth, horrified, as she smirked. And then,just like that, she was gone. The air near my face wafted sligtly, like someone had just opened a window.
"I don't need this!" I said to the empty room. "Seriously, plate? FULL."
But there was no reply. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1110167

Her eyes, however, were every bit as hard and shiny as the varnish on Dad's desk.
"Sophie, there you are! Where have you been the past few days? We've hardly seen you."
"A-around?" I stuttered, inwardly cringing. Oh,that was an awesome alibi. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1219304

There was an intruder on a forbidden part of the island, and the security system was compromised. Another image of Archer's sword slicing through a ghoul came to mind. Yeah, compromised was one word for it. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1235639

Wow, Cross. I think you missed your calling. Screw demon hunting: you should clearly be writing Hallmark cards. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1247641

It took me a good thirty minutes to find Cal. That was actually a good thing, because it gave me plenty of time to come up with something to say to him that wasn't just a string of four-letter words.
There are a lot of freaky things witches and warlocks do, obviously, but the arranged marriage thing was one of the grossest. When a witch is thirteen, her parents hook her up with an available warlock, based on things like compatible powers and family alliances. The entire thing is so eighteenth century.
As I stomped across school grounds, all I could see was Cal sitting with my dad in some manly room with leather chairs and dead animals on the wall, chomping on cigars as Dad formally signed me away to him.They probably even high-fived.
Okay,so it's not like either of them are exactly the cigar-and-high-fives type, but still. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1320536

Oh my God. Regret cake? Whatever was about to happen must be truly evil. [Sophie] — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1356586

Now, Sophia, would you care to tell me why you're here by the pond instead of reporting to your next class?'
'I'm experiencing some teenage angst, Mrs. Casnoff,' I answered. 'I need to, like, write in my journal or something. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1370681

See ya, Mercer."
Happiness flooded through me as warm and bright as sunlight. "See ya, Cross. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1372919

I'm not thrilled. And I totally reserve the right to angst over all this later. But honestly, Mom? Right now, I'm so happy to see you that I wouldn't care if you're secretly a ninja sent from the future to destroy kittens and rainbows. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1395910

I had just killed a teacher. With my shoe. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1463900

Archer Cross, resident bad boy and total heartthrob. Warlock. Every girl here is at least, like, half in love with him. Crushing on Archer Cross might as well be a class. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1494169

Looking back, none of this would have happened if I'd brought lip gloss the night of the Homecoming Dance. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1494593

I am sorry, for whatever it's worth... I was trying to do the right thing. - Blythe — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1502623

Then he paused, and I could tell that whatever he was going to say was really important. There was even a chance he might use more than five words to say it. "Or maybe your magic isn't destructive after all. The rain of Doritos, the bed things, this ... Maybe it's just that you create too big, you know?"
When I could find my voice, I said, "Cal, that might be the nicest thing anyone's said to me since we got here."
He twirled one of the naked roots between his finger and didn't meet my eyes. "It's true." The he glanced up and gazve one of those half smiles I was really starting to like. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1504112

I wondered what Finley would say if she were here. Probably something like, 'Stab him with silver and see if it kills him. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1519345

Sophie: "Right. So no plans at all, then?"
Jenna: "Other than rocking in the fetal position for a while? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1566492

I tugged at the hem of my brand-new Hecate Hall issue blue plaid skirt (Kilt? Some sort of bizarre skirt/kilt hybrid? A skilt?) — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1603430

God, I might actually choke on these words. I trust you. And I wanna check this out, but I'm not stupid enough to go check it out myself, and I think I might... need you." - David
"E-mail her. Make an appointment. And I'll... I'll go with you." - Harper — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1612649

This grimoire was written in the language of angels."
"Shouldn't that be,like, harp music or chanting, and not hard-core hieroglyphics? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1667952

So when you left Hex Hall after Holly died, that wasn't because you were the grief-stricken fiance. You were going to The Eye."
"Yeah. I told them that I thought Elodie and her coven had raised a demon, so we decided I should get close to her,see what was really going on."
"And you decided to get really close to her."
He laughed softly. "I can't see you, but I have a feeling you're cute when you're jealous,Mercer."
Crossing my arms over my chest, I said, "It's not jealousy you're hearing, it's digust. You dated a girl you didn't even like just to get information out of her."
His laughter died, and his voice sounded weary when he said, "Trust me, a lot of my brothers have done much worse."
There was so much I wanted to ask him, but it's not like we could sit out here all night passing the sharing stick or whatever.Time to cut to the chase.
"So did The Eye tell you to get all Mata Hari on me too? — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1669196

The sparks faded, but Cal didn't take his hand off mine. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1670604

Please don't joke and bleed at the same time. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1768774

Check out the magic crap." He shot me a look. "Oh, is that what we're supposed to be doing? Because I've just been drawing hearts and our initials in the dirt. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1877387

You okay?" Archer asked as he opened the door.
"Yeah," I said, but I was freaked out. "It's just...Can I ask you something really weird?"
"Those are my favorite kinds of questions. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1915282

I'd never thought of aqua as a particular offensive color before, but looking at those bedspreads, I knew that next school year I was totally banning anything even approaching that shade from any school dance decorations. I'd never be able to look at it again without wanting to slit my own throat. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1924525

God, I was just six years older than you are now. That's terrifying." She raised her shoulder, nudging my head. "Please don't make me a grandmother in six years, okay?"
I scoffed. "Trust me, after the Boy Issues I've had, I'm becoming a nun."
"Well, that's good to know."
We stayed there, dangling our feet over the creek, talking, until the sun was high overhead. By the time we made our way back to the compound, I was feeling a little better. Sure, my life was still intensely screwed up, but at least I had some answers. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1944356

For a little bit I forgot that I was apparently made of evil, and that I was being stalked by a ghost. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 1950440

Last semester was intense," I said to Dad.

"Intense?" he echoed, picking up my file. "Let's see. On your first day at Hecate, you were attacked by a werewolf. You insulted a teacher, which resulted in semester-long cellar duty with one Archer Cross. According to the notes, the two of you became 'close.' Apparently close enough for you to see the mark of L'Occhio di Dio on his chest.

I flushed at that, and felt Mom's arm tighten around me. Over the past six months, I'd filled her in on a lot of the story with Archer, but not all of it.

Specifically, the whole me-making-out-in-the-cellar-with-a-murderous-warlock-working-with-the-Eye-part. — Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Hawkins Quotes 2015124

So did The Eye come here tonight looking for me?"
"Actually, we came because we heard it was free corn dog night. Imagine our disappointment."
I jerked my head to look at him. That was a mistake. We were already so close that turning to face him meant our noses were about an inch apart. So I craned my back away and addressed my words to the street. "The last time we saw each other, you pulled a knife on me. So if you could spare the banter, that'd be great."
