“My mom’s told me, ever since I was born, that if I kiss my true love, he’ll die.”

Gansey laughed.

Don’t laugh, you—” Blue was going to say bastard but it felt too strong and she lost the nerve.

“Well, it’s just a very precautionary-sounding sort of thing, isn’t it? Don’t date or you’ll go blind. Kiss your true love and he bites it.”

“It’s not just her!” Blue protested. “Every psychic or medium I’ve ever met tells me the same thing. Besides, my mom’s not like that. She wouldn’t just play around with something like that. It’s not pretend.”

“Sorry,” Gansey said, realizing she was genuinely annoyed with him. “I was being a dick again. Do you know how he’s supposed to die, this unlucky guy?”

Blue shrugged.

“Ah. Devil’s in the details, I guess. So you just kiss nobody, in a precautionary way?” He watched her nod. “That seems grim, Jane. I won’t lie.”

"Stiles, great kid, zero ability to focus, super smart, never takes advantage of his talents."

n a r n i a? what’s that?

                    oh, my dear girl, y o u ’ r e   i n   i t .

My darling Nadezhda… This year has been hard. Your uncle, Anatoli — In the fall, I noticed he was starting to forget things. Now he’s…it’s like he’s not there anymore.When we were children he was the smartest one in the family. Good at math. Good at everything. After you left, I saw him much more. And now…well — I miss you so much. I’m sure it’s hard for you to hear over and over how much I miss you, but it’s the truth. You always did insist on the truth. They brought me a picture of you this year, with your children. I look at it every day. You look happy Nadezhda. I know I’ll never meet them, but knowing you have them…that makes me happy. They are my family too…
