"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb..." he murmured.
I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
"What a stupid lamb", I sighed.
"What a sick, masochistic lion." Edward smiled.
'And you're worried, not because you're headed to meet a houseful of vampires, but because you think those vampires won't approve of you, correct?'
'That's right,' I answered immediately, hiding my surprise at his casual use of the word.
He shook his head. 'You're incredible.'
About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him - and I didn’t know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Bella: "Look, you gotta give me some answers."
Edward: "Yes. No. To get to the other side. 1.772453."
Bella: "I don't want to know what the square root of Pi is."
He called you pretty... That's practically an insult, the way you look right now... You're much more than beautiful.Love, BeautyStephenie Meyer in Twilight
"I miss you," I whispered.
"I know, Bella. Believe me, I know. It's like you've taken half my self away with you."

Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.TimeStephenie Meyer in Twilight
Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars -- points of light and reason... And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.Stephenie Meyer in Twilight
