It's going to be okay, I told her, even though I was pretty sure we were all going to be skewered on L'Occhio silver daggers any minute now. -- Rachel Hawkins
I clutched at his shoulders, raising up on my tiptoes, and kissed him with everything I had in me. As the kiss deepened, we held each other tighter, so I didn't know if the pounding heartbeat I felt was mine or his. -- Rachel Hawkins
I don't drink."
"Oh My God, a straight-edged demon! I freaking love it! -- Rachel Hawkins
Or maybe they were staring at me as I tried to discreetly wipe sweat from between my breasts without appearing to get to second base with myself. Hard to say. -- Rachel Hawkins
Quite an impressive file you've amassed, Sophia." Clasping his hands, he added, "If Hecate offered classes in complete mayhem, I have no doubt you'd be valedictorian."
Nice to see where I got my snarkiness. -- Rachel Hawkins
Sophie Mercer, turning down food for homework?"
"Yeah,it's the new,lamer, more Britisher me. -- Rachel Hawkins
Sophie: "Right. So no plans at all, then?"
Jenna: "Other than rocking in the fetal position for a while? -- Rachel Hawkins
I was just about to get up when Dad rushed into the kitchen. He was in pajamas, which was totally bizarre. Dad never came down to breakfast until he was completely dressed. Of course, his pajamas even had a little pocket and handkerchief, so maybe he felt dressed. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I had always been proud of my mom. So she'd never back cookies, or sew a Halloween costume, but she could fight monsters. She was tough and smart, and maybe she didn't read bedtime stories, but she had taught me to defend myself against the things that lurked under beds. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
It didn't seem fair that so much bad could happen in so short a time.
Or maybe I was just using up all the horrible now. Maybe the next eighty years would be full of nothing but Yahtzee and collecting various cats. That might be nice. -- Rachel Hawkins
You know, this isn't how I imagined meeting Sophie's first real boyfriend."
Archer gave me a little squeeze. "You mean I'm the first guy your parents have rescued from an enchanted island via use of a magic mirror? I feel so special."
~ Grace, Sophie, Archer -- Rachel Hawkins
"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
We could go to Lough Bealach,' Aislinn answered.
'Is that a place, or are you choking?' I asked, earning me a glare in return.
Dad made a strangled sound that might have been a laugh. -- Rachel Hawkins
You have this weird look on your face," he said. "Like you're doing really complicated math in your head. -- Rachel Hawkins
I sat up and pushed my wet hair out of eyes. Cal was standing a few feet away. I glared at him. Awesome job with the saving. -- Rachel Hawkins
I know," I told him. "It sounds insane. It is insane."
His eyes fixed on mine. "You killed someone," he said, his voice barely audible. "With a shoe."
"He had a sword," I fired back and then, to my shock, David burst out laughing. -- Rachel Hawkins
I decided not to wear makeup, figuring the more innocent I looked, the harder it might be for him to ground me, or shoot hellfire from his eyes, or whatever it was that angry demon dads did. -- Rachel Hawkins
This is nothing more than a freaking temper tantrum with a body count, and I am done with it. Nobody else is dying for this. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
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
I'm a lover, not a fighter. -- Rachel Hawkins
For a second I thought about saying, Yes, please, let's catch the next ferry out of this freak show. -- Rachel Hawkins
Dark witches do the bigger things," Chaston offered. "And our powers are a hell of a lot stronger. We can make barrier spells, and if we're really good, control the weather. We're also necromancers if
" "Whoa!" I held up my hand. "Necromancers? Like, power over dead things? -- Rachel Hawkins
Where is this?" I asked. It wasn't a continent I recognized. David looked up from gathering a pile of laundry. "Oh. Um, that's Middle Earth. -- Rachel Hawkins
Maybe we can talk to them,' I said, tubbing my nose with the back of my hand. 'Have a little sit-down chat.'
'Ooh, yeah, with the nice china, and those little sandwiches that don't have crusts. -- Rachel Hawkins
She was wearing a bright purple dress that was so short, I thought it might have started its life as a shirt. She would've been pretty if her face hadn't looked like she'd just taken a big swig of sour milk. -- Rachel Hawkins
Good luck explaining to God that you used to spank one of his heavenly beings."
Mom gave a startled laugh. "Sophie!"
"What? You did. I hope you like hot weather, Mom, that's all I'm saying. -- Rachel Hawkins
And I have faith that you'll make a wonderful head of the Council someday, Sophie.
Yeah, except for that whole sleeping with the enemy part, I thought. Wait, not that I would actually be sleeping with ... I mean, it's a metaphor. There would only be metaphorical sleeping. -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh, so now it's you with the gift of prophecy, is it? I know what I've seen. You are my key and my salvation. -- Rachel Hawkins
A few weeks ago, if you had told me that being held in David Stark's arms was one of the nicest things I'd ever feel, I wouldn't have laughed at you. I would've been too busy choking on my own horror. -- Rachel Hawkins
As I looked around the room at all these people-my family-excitement thrummed through me. Yes, this might go down in history as the stupidest thing I'd ever done, but it felt so good to have a plan that I didn't care if it was a bad one. -- Rachel Hawkins
At a normal high school, having class outside on a gorgeous May day is usually pretty awesome. It means sitting in the sunshine, maybe reading some poetry, letting the breeze blow through your hair ... At Hecate Hall, a.k.a. Juvie for Monsters, it meant I was getting thrown in the pond. -- Rachel Hawkins
Witches, shapeshifters, and fae were one thing. Vampires were monsters, plain and simple. That whole sensitive Children of the Night thing was total b.s. -- Rachel Hawkins
I moved to the center of the room, my strappy sandals clacking on the marble floor. "I'm assuming this is where the punishment part comes in," I said. "So do I need to clean all these mirrors, or do I have to, like, stare at myself until I feel shamed or something? -- Rachel Hawkins
Well, that explained it, then. Secret demon hunter and thief. Man, did I know how to pick 'em. -- Rachel Hawkins
At least one thing at Hex Hall hasn't changed," Jenna said.
"Yeah, apparently the Vandy's powers of bitchery are a constant. I find that comforting. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm impressed." I meant it, and he nodded his head in thanks.
"Yeah, turning jars into soda.Let the world tremble before my power. -- Rachel Hawkins
We stood there for a long moment before he said, "You know, we still have like, half an hour down here. Seems a shame to waste it." I poked him in the ribs, and he gave an exaggerated wince. "No way, dude. My days of cellar, mill, and dungeon lovin' are over. Go castle or go home. -- Rachel Hawkins
Are we all going to high-five now?' Jenna asked after a pause.
'No, but I can make up some kind of secret handshake if you want,' Archer said, and for a second, they smiled at each other. -- Rachel Hawkins
I opened my eyes to stare at a bright blue tulle monstrosity with a skirt that would hit me at mid thigh. I'd look like the really slutty bride of Cookie Monster. -- Rachel Hawkins
At this time, all students are to report to the greenhouse."
Scowling, I waved my arm through the spell. It swirled like smoke before dissolving. "Freaking drama queen," I muttered. "How hard would it have been to announce that last night? Or to just do the voice thing? -- Rachel Hawkins
So hologram means
" I finally said.
"It means non-corporeal, yeah. Which sucks seeing as how there are a lot of very corporeal things I'd like to do with you right now. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm sure you'd hate to miss everyone's felicitations.
David had beaten me in the final round of our sixth-grade spelling bee with that word and now, all these years later, he still tried to drop it into conversation whenever he could. -- Rachel Hawkins
Somehow, my whole existence had become a really complicated word problem.
I'd always sucked at those. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Just thinking. Man, Sophie, it's only your first day and you've already befriended the school outcast, pissed off the most popular girls at Hecate, and developed a full-blown thing for the hottest guy. If you can manage to get detention tomorrow, you'll be like, legendary. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
The guy hefted the sword, weighing it. "What's a pretty thing like you want with a sword anyway?"
"She's going to use it to castrate guys who ask stupid questions," Blythe answered for me, her voice flat. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I didn't actually think you were hanging out at Hex Hall because of your burning love for me. But that's what I'm telling all the girls back at school," I said, stabbing a forkful of eggs. "I'm thinking 'heartbreaker' might be a nice addition to my 'avenging witch' reputation. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I wish we could go to the movies. -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh, God, if that's where this woman had gotten her Sophie Mercer gossip, I was surprised she'd greeted me with a handshake instead of an exorcism. -- Rachel Hawkins
I also like ladies. And not as in shopping buddies, but in the carnal sense. -- Rachel Hawkins
The four of us sat around the pentagram holding hands. I wondered if we were about to sing Kumbaya. -- Rachel Hawkins
I am not snotty!" I nearly yelped.
He leaned back on his elbows, a wicked smile on his face. "Please.The first day I met you,you practically had a layer of permafrost covering you. -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh my God. Regret cake? Whatever was about to happen must be truly evil. [Sophie] -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm sorry, but are you pissed at me? Me? I'm the one who had your knee practically crushing my spine, buddy, so let's check the attitude. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I just...I'm really freaked out."
Her expression softened and she covered my fingers with her own. "I know. The joking in the face of death thing kind of gave it away. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I think I might have seen pride in Dad's eyes. Or maybe it was just a gleam of Why is my offspring so insane? -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm sure we can manage without him for a few months. Although without his healing powers, we'll certainly have to invest in more bandages. -- Rachel Hawkins
He and I had loathed each other since kindergarten. Heck, even before that. Mom says he's the only baby I ever bit in daycare. -- Rachel Hawkins
Unlike some people, I don't have the urge to go sticking my fingers in it. -- Rachel Hawkins
You know, I can see more than just the future or the past."
"Really?" I asked, paging through through the papers in the file. "Can you also see the present? Because I can do that, too. Like, right now, I sense that I'm in a messy room with a total toolbox. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'd never been able to actually feel my blood pressure rising before, but it certainly was now. It felt kind of the way magic used to feel, only with more homicidal rage thrown in. -- Rachel Hawkins
What are you?
I opened my eyes gingerly. The flashlight that had blinded me was lying a few feet from my head now, which gave me just enough light to see what appeared to be a twelve-year-old girl sitting on my chest.
I'd gotten my butt handed to me by a sixth grader? That was embarrassing. -- Rachel Hawkins
I [dad] spent hours on the phone. Do you know with whom?'
'One of those psychic hotlines?' Dad gritted his teeth. 'If only ... -- Rachel Hawkins
If I cried any more tonight, I'd probably turn into a dried-out husk. -- Rachel Hawkins
At 7:45, I was in the bathroom putting on some mascara when Jenna slipped in wearing an outfit that I can only describe as Hello Kitty Goes Goth. -- Rachel Hawkins
All right then, Daisy and I will have our usual.
I wondered what that might be. Evil Juice? Some kind of demonic energy drink? -- Rachel Hawkins
You would be too stubborn to die. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cryptic Dad is cryptic,' I muttered ... We'd hung out all day today. Was there no time in there he could have said, 'Oh, hey, meet me at the magical bookcase at the butt-crack of dawn tomorrow, cool? -- Rachel Hawkins
Houses are like boats," Aunt May had sniffed. "They should always keep their original names. -- Rachel Hawkins
As for Demonologies: A History, I was beginning to think it would have been better employed as a doorstop. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
There will be Casnoff butt kicked and all sorts of names taken. And hey, maybe I'll get some new scars."
Both of them hugged me tighter. "We love you, Soph," Mom said.
"Quite right," Dad added, and I laughed, even as my stomach twisted itself into a balloon animal. -- Rachel Hawkins
Guilt is such a weird feeling, a combination of sad and sick that I was getting too used to feeling. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal had been waiting for us at the pond. When he'd seen me, he'd given me a barely perceptible nod, which was the Cal version of waving his hands over his head and yelling, Hey, Sophie! -- Rachel Hawkins
Dad, she's just going to freak. And probably come here and get me, and then you guys will start yelling at each other, and I'll have to act out by wearing lots of eyeliner and doing the drugs -- Rachel Hawkins
Sophia Mercer," Elodie intoned, "we have come to induct you into our sisterhood. Say the five words to begin the ritual."
I blinked at her. "Are you freaking kidding me?"
Anna gave an exasperated sigh. "No, the five words are 'I accept you offer, sisters. -- Rachel Hawkins
By now, all three Brannick women - all four, if you counted Mom - were staring at me. Man, what had that piney-tasting stuff been? The Brannick version of Red Bull? -- Rachel Hawkins
Guilt is a powerful weapon to have in your arsenal. -- Rachel Hawkins
Yeah,maybe later we can all sing a demon version of 'Kumbaya. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
You're the healing janitor dude."
"Isn't that like a janitor?"
"No, it's like a groundskeeper. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I dropped to my knees beside him, touching his cheek.It was felt cool and clammy under my hand. "This is ... what I get ... for coming early," he gasped out, trying to smile at me.
"Please don't joke and bleed at the same time," I said as I gently lifted his hands from his chest. -- Rachel Hawkins
Between the three of us," she said, gesturing to her daughters, "we could probably take them all out."
I winced. "You mean, kill them."
"No, take them all out for ice cream. -- Rachel Hawkins
So you're the demon spawn," Finley spit out.
"Finn!" Aislinn snapped. Huh. So at least one of the Brannicks hated me. Weirdly, that made me
feel better. That was normal. And if there was one thing I knew how to deal with, it was Mean Girls.
"I actually go by Sophie. -- Rachel Hawkins
Why had my life suddenly become a Nancy Drew mystery from hell? -- Rachel Hawkins
I picked up the nearest weapon I could lay my hands on: a stapler. I lifted it, going for "menacing." I admit it lacked a certain elegance, but hey. It was worth a shot. David placed his hand on my arm and pushed it back down.
"Just ... that's embarrassing for all of us," he replied. -- Rachel Hawkins
I usually feel pretty screamy when someone attacks my school. -- Rachel Hawkins
Yeah, I was thinking about taking one of those showers where you huddle in the corner fully clothed and cry, Archer offered. -- Rachel Hawkins
None of this makes any sense."
"I'm beginning to think I should make that the title of my autobiography. -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh, don't worry about it, I said, trying to sound normal even though all I really wanted to do was run inside the garage and try to lift my dad's SUV. You know, for scientific purposes. -- Rachel Hawkins
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. -- Rachel Hawkins
This was a boy who could make a school uniform look good. What he did to formal wear was damn near criminal. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Okay, I should probably mention right here that Brandon used the real word, but this is my story, so I'm cleaning it up a little. -- Rachel Hawkins
Looking back, none of this would have happened if I'd brought lip gloss the night of the Homecoming Dance. -- Rachel Hawkins
It was one thing to get laid out by Archer in Defense, but being attacked out of nowhere by my great-grandmother was just embarrassing. -- Rachel Hawkins
Being confronted with one's worst nightmares is both a way of testing your mental fortitude and seeing where your heart lies. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wondered if they had rehearsed this weird three-way-talking thing they had going on. I imagined them sitting in a circle in their dorm room, brushing their hair and saying, Okay, so I'll say we feel bad, and then you'll say that your hot boyfriend thinks she's pathetic. -- Rachel Hawkins
Um ... Mercer? Haven't seen you in nearly a month. I was expecting something like, 'Oh Cross, love of my heart, fire of my loins, how I've longed
-- Rachel Hawkins
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
No. Don't distract me with your sexy talk. -- Rachel Hawkins
Jenna went to take my hand, but I stood up and gave her my best "Everything Is Fine, No, Really, It Is" smile. -- Rachel Hawkins
Aunt May, my sweet Aunt May, who taught me how to knit, who bought me a piece of candy every time we went to the store, jabbed a cocktail fork at my eye. -- Rachel Hawkins
I am sorry, for whatever it's worth... I was trying to do the right thing. - Blythe -- Rachel Hawkins
Jenna had started swimming in the deep end of the pity pool. -- Rachel Hawkins
And of course, your dad was always talking about you, so between him and Jenna, I feel like I already know you."
Man, first Cal, then Lara and the other Council members, now Vix. Did Dad have a blog about me or something? "My Daughter Sophie and Why You Should All Follow Her and/or Marry Her. -- Rachel Hawkins
I hadn't thought about that."He pinched the bridge of his nose and sighed. "Curiouser and curiouser."
Startled, I glanced at him. "I say that sometimes."
Even with his face tight with worry, Dad managed to look a little amused. "It's from Alice in Wonderland. Appropriate, don't you think? -- Rachel Hawkins
We're teenagers," I reminded her now. "They won't let us in."
"We're girls," Blythe countered. "They'll let us in. -- Rachel Hawkins
How is it that you can go from decent human being to complete jackass in zero-point-two seconds? Did they teach you that in The Eye?"
He stopped, and his eyes glided over my lips.
"Actually, I'm just trying to see if I can make you mad enough to kiss me again. -- Rachel Hawkins
That makes,what? The second time I've saved your life? Third, if you count that thing in Defense with the Vandy. Speaking of which, you're still thrusting your elbow too high on Skill Nine."
I swallowed twice before I was able to answer. "I'll work on that. -- Rachel Hawkins
Perhaps the most defining characteristic of a superhero is a willingness to sacrifice for the good of others, even to the point of laying down his or her own life. -- Rachel Hawkins
For a little bit I forgot that I was apparently made of evil, and that I was being stalked by a ghost. -- Rachel Hawkins
A feeling of contentment flooded through me as I felt magic surging up from my feet. I flung another hand out, and the fog seemed to flinch in its rush to pull back. "Okay," Jenna said, tugging at my arm. "You're back to being a badass. Now, run. -- Rachel Hawkins
Which will give you enough time to understand the implications of your decision to the fullest," Dad said.
I whirled on him. "Okay,first of all, no one talks like that. Secondly, I do understand the implications of my decision. Removing my powers will keep me from potentially killing someone. -- Rachel Hawkins
"Sulky McSulkerton -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal's fingers tightened on mine, and my heart thumped in response. The library felt very quiet and very still around us. You'll feel it. -- Rachel Hawkins
I may be a loser, but hey, at least I'm a loser who can do magic, right? -- Rachel Hawkins
You know, 'help me, Sophie Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh, Tiny Pink Jenna," I half sobbed, half giggled. "I have never been so happy to see a vampire in my life."
She squeezed me tighter. "I've never been so happy to be squished by a demon! -- Rachel Hawkins
After all, my uniform still had the distinct odor of Nasty Pond. -- Rachel Hawkins
This thing with us is the only real thing I've had in a long time. You're the only real thing." He raised our hands and kissed my knuckles. "And I'm done pretending I don't want you. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
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
You know, Take Your Demon To Work Day. -- Rachel Hawkins
Fine," she said. "But if this is some trick that ends up getting me killed, I'm so haunting your ass. -- Rachel Hawkins
Bruce Wayne's parents get killed and he goes to Tibet or whatever, and Superman is an alien, and Spiderman had that radioactive spider. Me? I kissed a janitor in the school bathroom. -- Rachel Hawkins
Ryan rolled his eyes. Harper, you and David Stark have been circling each other since kindergarden. -- Rachel Hawkins
You always have a lot going on Harper. It's like your thing. When you die in a hundred years, they'll probably write on your gravestone, 'Here lies Harper Price-Dang it, She Still had Stuff To Do! -- Rachel Hawkins
When you die in a hundred years, they'll probably write on your gravestone, 'Here Lies Harper Price - Damn It, She Still Had Stuff to Do! -- Rachel Hawkins
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
That was just a hug, and we were fully clothed."
He shot me a weird look, and the flush on his neck got redder.
our skin didn't touch,' I hurried on, and now, oh God, I was blushing too.
"So maybe this thing needs skin-on-skin-contact. Or hand-on-hand. Or ... -- Rachel Hawkins
Auburn Tigers T-shirt. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal curled his fingers around mine and raised my left hand to the brownish flower. There was a callus on his thumb that should have been irritating against my skin. -- Rachel Hawkins
We were sitting so close that our hips touched. He smelled nice, like freshly cut grass and sunshine. I wondered if he'd been outside already this morning, or if that's just the way Cal always smelled. -- Rachel Hawkins
But this room looked like it had been decorated by the unholy lovechild of Barbie and Strawberry Shortcake. -- Rachel Hawkins
If she thought I was about to do the whole "have a conversation with the villain" thing, she was dead wrong. I raised one hand while the other reached into my waistband for the grimoire. One super magical destructo-blast coming up. -- Rachel Hawkins
What are they all doing there? Throwing a hellacious slumber party?" when no one said anything, I added, "Get it? Hellacious? Because they're all ... Forget it. -- Rachel Hawkins
Well, apparently he didn't go through the Removal. He's still got powers."
"Yeah, powers over your pants, -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Your sister already did the 'villain explains it all' speech.I don't need another one. -- Rachel Hawkins
But please ... don't keep trying to fix us, Harper. We're not broken. -- Rachel Hawkins
We're going to the Underworld," Izzy said. She bounced a little as she said it, her eyes bright and her tone implying that "the Underworld" was akin to "Candy Land. -- Rachel Hawkins
We hardly ever know the decisions we make that change our lives, mostly because they are the small ones -- Rachel Hawkins
"Nah," I replied, but since I bleated it like a sheep, I doubt she was convinced. -- Rachel Hawkins
Thanks to the humidity, my hair felt like it had tripled in size. I could feel it
trying to devour my sunglasses like some sort of carnivorous jungle plant. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
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
No, the best thing to do was to get the heck out of the bathroom and find a teacher, or a cop, or an exorcist. I'd take anyone at this point. -- Rachel Hawkins
People are so rarely villains in their own minds. -- Rachel Hawkins
Wow, Cross. I think you missed your calling. Screw demon hunting: you should clearly be writing Hallmark cards. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
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
Archer's not cute," She amended. "Puppies are cute. Babies are cute. I'm cute. Archer Cross is smokin' hot. And I'm not even into guys. -- Rachel Hawkins
But for the most part, magic tends to end in explosions, or tears, or with you flat on your back in the middle of nowhere, feeling like a tiny dwarf is mining for diamonds inside your head. Okay, so maybe that last bit was just me. -- Rachel Hawkins
They're pretty conspicuous."
"Why? Are they green and horny?" I willed a blush away and said, "I mean, as in having horns,not ... the other. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wanted to run at her, hit her, scream, but I was frozen in place. -- Rachel Hawkins
What's going to happen?" he asked. "Are we all going to stand in a circle and sing 'Kumbaya'? -- Rachel Hawkins
He raised an eyebrow, which made me totally jealous. I've never been able to do that. I always just end up raising both of them and looking surprised or scared instead of sardonic. -- Rachel Hawkins
Dedication: For John, who said, "You know what this book needs? More fire. And maybe some swords." This ONE time, honey, you were right. (Rachel Hawkins) -- Rachel Hawkins
I would actually write books totally full of nothing BUT kissing scenes, but apparently people like books to have, like, "plots" or whatever. -- Rachel Hawkins
Okay," I said,hoping I sounded confident, like taking the life force out of ghouls was one of my favorite hobbies, right up there with knitting and sudoku. -- Rachel Hawkins
Believe me," he continued, "I want nothing more than to smite her out of existence.But I can't.Not until I have concrete evidence."
Smiting sounded good to me,but, as much as I hated it,I knew he was right. "Man,politics suck," I muttered. -- Rachel Hawkins
For the past six months, I'd gotten so good at telling myself that I could handle everything, that the worst would never happen. It seemed like I'd been wrong every time. -- Rachel Hawkins
You hate him for what he did, but you miss him. -- Rachel Hawkins
I would kill Mrs. Casnoff. I would blast that stupid hairdo right off her head, once I had my powers back. -- Rachel Hawkins
Archer! Let us fetch a spot of tea, old boy! -- Rachel Hawkins
Her smile was beautiful and terrible. Her eyes glowed as bright as a furnace. -- Rachel Hawkins
In fact, there was an ancient bearded guy in the corner who looked like he'd probably palled around with Mary Shelley. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
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
We headed down a narrow flight of stairs that ended at a low arch. Beyond the arch was yet another murky room. Did these people have something against overhead lighting? -- Rachel Hawkins
Jackass, jackass on the wall, where's the info on Hex Hall? -- Rachel Hawkins
Dex leveled a fake-sultry gaze at me. Are you coming on to me? -- Rachel Hawkins
Leave Dad alone" I told Aislinn. "His Britishness is sort-circuiting. -- Rachel Hawkins
I can't possess anyone else. Trust me, I've been trying to get inside Lara Casnoff ever since we got here. Which ... sounds really wrong. -- Rachel Hawkins
I had to get out of this before I was killed with some elaborate cutlery. -- Rachel Hawkins
Which makes Archer and Nick-"
"Cousins," Archer filled in, still stirring his soup. "Nearly murdered by my own relative. That has to win some kind of medal for dysfunction." Then his expression darkened. "Or maybe it's just family tradition. -- Rachel Hawkins
Can't believe the school year is almost over, Beth said, in that voice that sounded like a teenage girl who had a throat full of broken glass and lug nuts. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Can you get me home by nine?" His grin widened. "Isolde, my friend, I can get you back by quarter 'til. -- Rachel Hawkins
The spell ... curled around ... like smoke before settling in.
Sophie: "Okay, do you guys feel protected?"
Archer: "Yes. Also a little violated, but that's neither here nor there. -- Rachel Hawkins
This isn't going to be good, is it?" Jenna whispered.
"Maybe the special purpose involves us eating brownies?" I suggested. "Or, like, wrangling unicorns? That may actually be possible."
Jenna studied me. "You must be really freaked out. -- Rachel Hawkins
It sucks that we miss people like that. You think you've accepted that someone is out of your life, that you've grieved and it's over, and then bam. One little thing, and you feel like you've lost that person all over again. -- Rachel Hawkins
I bet she woke up with her hair looking like something out of a Pantene commercial while little bluebirds circled around her head, and raccoons brought her breakfast or something. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wasn't interrupting, I interrupted, and Ms. East's mouth tilted down ever farther, which meant I'd just crossed into the land of Royally Screwed. -- Rachel Hawkins
Holy hell weasel! -- Rachel Hawkins
There are several ways. You can think of a memory from before you came into your powers. Or focus on a time when your felt particularly strong human emotions: jealousy, fear, love..."
"What do you think about?"
Setting his glasses on his nose, he replied, "Your mother. -- Rachel Hawkins
Jenna and Vix laughed at that and, after making me promise to hang out with them tomorrow, practically waltzed out the door. I felt like there should have been rainbows and rose petals in their wake or something.
Ugh. That was catty. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'd been harboring this secret fantasy that he was only pretending to like her so that he could publicly dump her in the most embarrassing way possible, preferably on national television. -- Rachel Hawkins
I had an incredibly nasty retort ready that involved his mother and the U.S. Navy. -- Rachel Hawkins
I tried to lift the book in a kind of salute, but it was way too heavy for that. In fact,when I got back up to my room and tossed it on the bed,the mattress creaked in protest. -- Rachel Hawkins
The Ephors wanted to kill David," I told Blythe. "Because of his ... boy parts and stuff. -- Rachel Hawkins
Once you've watched grown men chase greased pigs, it's hard to find anything that actually seems scuzzier. Bee -- Rachel Hawkins
She was my assignment."
"From The Eye?"
"No, from the Boy Scouts. That Witch Dating badge just kept eluding me."
"Well, you must have at least three Total Douchebag badges by now, so that has to count for something. -- Rachel Hawkins
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."

Deep-fried Oreos were sent from heaven to prove God loves us. -- Rachel Hawkins
When you don't have much family left, you'll do anything to protect what you have. -- Rachel Hawkins
Until tomorrow, Fair Isolde. -- Rachel Hawkins
In all my old school pictures I was always the one standing alone in the back with my hair in my face. -- Rachel Hawkins
I rubbed my hand over my chest, just above my heart. Mrs. Casnoff watched with a look of concern. "Did he hurt you?"
"No," I told her. "He didn't."
Nowhere you could see, at least. -- Rachel Hawkins
We could try to go together, "I said. "I think we'd both fit, and that way, if we end up transported to another dimension or morphed into a wall, at least we'd have company. -- Rachel Hawkins
Dex was taller than me, and as he pressed me against him, he actually hauled me up on my tiptoes. His arm was around my waist, his other hand plunged into my hair, and he was kissing me. I mean, really, really kissing me.
I was kissing him back. And I was good at it. -- Rachel Hawkins
- So what do we do? - She asked.
I reached for the doorknob and looked at the Bi.
- Forward to a normal life.
- Do you think that happens? - She asked, and I became spuskatsya through the power of the stairs to the exit:
"Be happy, the boss"
- And we'll try -- Rachel Hawkins
There were only six adults in the oldest picture,and all of them looked really serious,like they'd probably kicked kittens for fun. -- Rachel Hawkins
What the heck is that?" I asked, pointing to a dark stain in the nearest corner.
"Okay, number one question you *don't* want to hear in a creepy cellar," Archer said ... -- Rachel Hawkins
Both of us widened our eyes and said, "Woah."
Then I immediately blushed. Oh my God, had I just looked at Archer and said, "Whoa"?
But ... wait a minute. Had Archer just looked at me and said "Whoa"? -- Rachel Hawkins
Okay, fine. But just so you know, following me into hell means you're all definitely the sidekicks." "Darn, I was hoping to be the rakishly charming love interest," Archer said, taking my hand. -- Rachel Hawkins
There was something about Nick that was like being around a wild animal. He was smiling and friendly now, but it felt like at any minute he could turn snarling and scary again. -- Rachel Hawkins
I expected him to do his usual thing of Oh, Sophie, but that is impossible b/c of this big word, and that big word, and also this abstract concept. -- Rachel Hawkins
Then, like I wasn't thrown enough, Cal leaned down and picked up a potted African violet on the low table next to the sofa and brought it over to me. For a second, I wondered if this was his socially awkward way of trying to give me flowers. -- Rachel Hawkins
A knife. A silver knife, like the one that had cut out Alice's heart. -- Rachel Hawkins
I uncurled my legs and pushed until I had both arms fully extended and both legs straight up in the air. My dress fell down over my head, so if any of our neighbors were up and about, they saw more than just me going all Russian gymnast on our fence. -- Rachel Hawkins
That's it. Be yourself. Be Isolde Brannick, and they will have no choice but to adore you, He reached out and took my hand, pressing a kiss to the back of it. I was too stunned to do anything but sit there, my hand limp in his. -- Rachel Hawkins
Don't even think about it, Mercer. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wish we could go to the movies."
I stared at him. "We're in a creepy dungeon. There's a chance I might die in the next few hours. You are going to die in the next few hours. And if you had one wish, it would be to catch a movie? -- Rachel Hawkins
What with the pointing and the blue suit, she brought to mind a flight attendant. I expected her to tell me that in the event of an emergency, my brand-new Hecate blazer could be used as a flotation device. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
It has also been Lara's idea that I go as Hecate, as a nod to the school. I thought that was kind of crappy-it made me feel like I was Hex Hall's mascot or something-but Dad liked it, and since he was the one footing the bill for this whole thing, Hecate it was. -- Rachel Hawkins
So how was cellar duty tonight?
Cellarific -- Rachel Hawkins
He'd taken all this weirdness and done the same thing I'd managed to do with it: take it in, feel crazy for a little bit, and then deal. -- Rachel Hawkins
But before he could either comfort me or commit further acts of violence upon my person, I spun away from him and made my drama queen moment complete by running away. -- Rachel Hawkins
You have that expression on your face that speaks of incipient moral dubiousness,' Torin observed, making me glad I'd bought that thesaurus a few years back. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I think I can hold my own in smartassery. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Jenna, once again, your powers of Awesome amaze me."
"It's a skill," she agreed, nodding somberly. -- Rachel Hawkins
No, but I mean do you like him? You know, in the carnal sense."
I rolled my eyes. "You've clearly been spending too much time with Dex. -- Rachel Hawkins
Look at him. Whole life turned upside down, and he's in there making pizza rolls. -- Rachel Hawkins
She was around fifty, with dark blond hair that had been twisted, teased, and probably threatened into a complicated updo. -- Rachel Hawkins
I don't know what heaven smells like, but if it doesn't smell like freshly baked cookies, I will be really disappointed. -- Rachel Hawkins
His head popped up a few shelves over. "What?"
"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."
Sophie + Archer -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Dad was at his desk when I opened the door, doing what all British people do when they're freaked out: drinking tea. -- Rachel Hawkins
One trauma at a time, please. - Bee -- Rachel Hawkins
I had no idea what anyone would ever need a demon for.Errands? General evil tasks that needed doing around the house? -- Rachel Hawkins
Was there no time in there he could have said, "Oh,hey,meet me at the magical bookcase at the butt-crack of dawn tomorrow,cool?"
And what the heck did he want to do at that bookcase? -- Rachel Hawkins
Ouija boards don't work.'
Dex rocked back on his heels, still grinning. 'That a fact?'
'I'm just saying, I don't think that anything made by Milton Bradley is much good for contacting the dark side, that's all. -- Rachel Hawkins
And the next time I did school stuff in the middle of the night, I just did it in my closet with the door locked. Honestly, what is wrong with this country when striving for excellence means you need antidepressants? -- Rachel Hawkins
I've loved this house from the moment I set eyes on it," Dad said quietly.
"I just wish it were a little bigger," I said. "I need at least five hundred bedrooms to keep from feeling cramped, you know? -- Rachel Hawkins
I was panting slightly, thanks to trying to keep up with him. Stupid short legs. -- Rachel Hawkins
It'll make you feel better."
"By making me dead?" I asked. "I mean, I'm sure that would make my headache go away, but that's a heck of a side effect. -- Rachel Hawkins
Of course I'd feel butterflies when a guy who looked like that said something so swoon-worthy. -- Rachel Hawkins
Between the two desks was one of those old Chinese screens, but even this bore Jenna's stamp, as the wood had been painted
you guessed it: pink. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I didn't exactly relish the idea of getting a tattoo, trust me. It was right up there with blue hair. -- Rachel Hawkins
Yeah, it's beautiful. For a prison. -- Rachel Hawkins
If by 'graciously volunteered,' you mean 'was threatened and coerced,' then yes, I did, -- Rachel Hawkins
I can tell you what the eye wanted with Sophie ... we heard she was particularly skilled qt Chutes and Ladders, and since The Eye holds a Chutes and Ladders tournament every summer -- Rachel Hawkins
Was this part of being a Paladin/superhero? Was I like the Hulk, only sweaty instead of green? -- Rachel Hawkins
Dad rubbed his forehead. "No Sophie, its alright. That's what I hoped you would do."
"You hoped I'd commit mirrorcide? -- Rachel Hawkins
I solemnly swear to tell Mrs. Casnoff that Elodie's ghost looked at me. And if I do not tell her, I swear to buy Jenna a pony. A vampire pony. -- Rachel Hawkins
Elodie made a gesture that was pretty easy to interpret. -- Rachel Hawkins
She sounded so bright and businesslike that I wondered if I had hallucinated the part where she basically told us we were all going to die. -- Rachel Hawkins
You mean I'm the first guy your parents have rescued from an enchanted island via use of a magic mirror? I feel special. -- Rachel Hawkins
I found her standing on tiptoes, scanning a shelf that was indeed next to a painting of a dude on a horse. I thought he looked awfully irritated for a guy in such a spiffy ermine cape. -- Rachel Hawkins
I was about to try Skill Fifteen, which involved both breaking his nose and potentially ending his chances of ever having kids, when my captor bent down and whispered in my ear, Don't even think about it, Mercer. -- Rachel Hawkins
The "Holy-crap-that's-a-lot-of-pink" zone would have been a more accurate description. -- Rachel Hawkins
My thoughts turned back to my parents and their apparent penchant for being big ol' liars. -- Rachel Hawkins
Highly secretive, L'Occhio di Dio is an elite group of assassins with only one goal - the total destruction of all Prodigium.
"Well, that's nice," I murmured to myself. -- Rachel Hawkins
I felt electrified from the top of my head to my toes, and somewhere in the back of my mind I heard Alice saying that love had a power all its own. She was right: this was magic. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wish we weren't like this. You know, demon, demon-hunter. I wish I'd met you in a normal high school, and taken you on normal dates, and like, carried your books or something. -- Rachel Hawkins
Don't worry about it," I said."Hey werewolves gotta drool, vampires gotta eat.. -- Rachel Hawkins
Brannicks and magic and hell, oh my,"
~ Sophie -- Rachel Hawkins
I could still try... I kick so much ass, right?" - Blythe
I hugged her. -- Rachel Hawkins
Irish girls, red hair,' I replied, remembering a picture of them from Mrs. Casnoff's 'People Who Want to Kill Us All' lecture at Hex Hall last year. -- Rachel Hawkins
Izzy was sitting cross-legged on the couch, a paper-back book in her hands. She didn't look up when we came in, and I wondered what she was reading that had her so absorbed. Monster Killing for Beginners, probably. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'd spent the past six months trying not to think about all that had happened last fall. To have it all read out to me in Dad's emotionless voice ... well,let's just say I was beginning to wish I'd stayed in the pond. -- Rachel Hawkins
Damn it,Izzy, I told you, keeping a low profile is an essential part of every job."
"I was trying!"
"And breaking someone's arm by second period? That was your attempt at trying? -- Rachel Hawkins
A startled giggle burst out of me. Paranormal Management Society. PMS. I hadn't even thought of it like that. -- Rachel Hawkins
It looks better. I mean, it's still creepy as hell, but it's back to its regular level of creepy. -- Rachel Hawkins
I noticed nearly everyone had a cup of Aunt Jewel's punch. It was the weirdest thing to me how everyone openly acknowledged that it was terrible, but kept drinking it anyway. Manners in action, I guess. -- Rachel Hawkins
You are my new hero. Seriously, I might actually be in love with you now. Would it be awkward if we made out? -- Rachel Hawkins
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
There was a sensible part of me somewhere that clutched its pearls and hissed that I better not give up my V-card in a CELLAR, but when Archer's hands slid under my shirt and onto the skin of my back, I started thinking that a cellar was as good a place as any. -- Rachel Hawkins
You could've just let me bleed to death and saved yourself a lot of hassel."
Cal scowled at him. "I did it for her. -- Rachel Hawkins
I had been caught with one of Prodigium's greatest enemies. Something told me that punishment would be a lot worse than writing a thousand words on some obscure topic. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
I'm guessing it has to do with embracing my destiny as future head of the Council and all.You know, Take Your Demon To Work Day. -- Rachel Hawkins
No, but as a vampire, I'm able to detect subtle shifts in emotional energy. -- Rachel Hawkins
Our lips met, and if this kiss wasn't as ... thorough as the first one, it felt bigger somehow. More important. -- Rachel Hawkins
They stared each other down, and while the dorky eleven-year-old in my soul kind of hoped that two hot boys might fight over me, the rational, seventeen-year-old knew that Archer need to get out of here, fast. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
A smile played around the corners of his mouth. He looked up at me. Bad dog. -- Rachel Hawkins
You say it like everyone is against the idea just to be jerks. But Mrs. Casnoff, your parents, me ... can you blame any of us for not wanting you to die? -- Rachel Hawkins
If I'd had any doubts about how Archer felt about me, they were eradicated when I saw the look on his face. I'd never had my spleen ripped out, but if I had, I figured I'd make the same face Archer wore now. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm not sure whether you're confident or delusional, but thanks anyway. -- Rachel Hawkins
You can't do a blocking spell, and you've never heard of L'Occhio di Dio? Man, what kind of witch are you?
I had an incredibly nasty retort ready that involved his mother and the U.S. Navy, but before I could get it out ... -- Rachel Hawkins
Hey,you might be able to take away my magical powers, but the power of sarcasm was still at my disposal. -- Rachel Hawkins
The great thing about best friends is that they know you really well. And the terrible thing about best friends is that they know YOU really well. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal," he said by way of explanation. "I owe that guy, like, a mountain of burgers. It's getting embarrassing. -- Rachel Hawkins
I was speechless. Elodie Parris, defending me? Maybe in all this chaos, hell actually had frozen over. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
It was such a relief to be able to sob and have someone know all the reasons why. -- Rachel Hawkins
Welcome to the Brannick family, Dexter. -- Rachel Hawkins
I wondered if there were ever times when Dad didn't sound like he escaped from a Jane Austen novel. -- Rachel Hawkins
So I have a destiny, I said. "Crap. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
His voice was low, and I think he would've been hot if he weren't radiating that air of I Am Super Evil
And Not In The Sexy Way. -- Rachel Hawkins
Most girls got flowers. I got a dirt pit used for demon raising. Nice. -- Rachel Hawkins
I don't swing my hips like that when I walk, I said to Elodie as we passed them. Cut it out.
She gave no sign of hearing me. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal stepped forward, hopefully to come to my rescue.
"I could toss her off the pier, Ms. Vanderlyden."
Or not. -- Rachel Hawkins
Why, Sophia Mercer! Is that disappointment I detect with my super=special vamp powers? -- Rachel Hawkins
See ya, Mercer."
Happiness flooded through me as warm and bright as sunlight. "See ya, Cross. -- Rachel Hawkins
Did Dad have a blog about me or something? My Daugther Sophie and Why You Should Al Follow Her and/or Marry Her. -- Rachel Hawkins
So did The Eye come here looking for me?"
"Actually, we came because we heard it was free corn dog night. Imagine our disappointment. -- Rachel Hawkins
I know 'What's Going On?' has practically become a catchphrase around here," I said to Jenna, "but seriously. What is going on? -- Rachel Hawkins
As I stomped across the 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 my dad formally signed me away to him. They probably even high-fived. -- Rachel Hawkins
This may sound weird, but the first thing I thought as I watched that ten-feet-tall bronze lady plummet toward my face was, Well, at least it can't kill me. -- Rachel Hawkins
Trust me, after the Boy Issues I've had, I'm becoming a nun. -- Rachel Hawkins
I stared at them. Had that been their sales pitch? Look!We're really scary! Come be scary too! -- Rachel Hawkins
I'd assumed he'd be old and burly with a side order of crotchety. -- Rachel Hawkins
It's always going to get better someday. Sometime in the future, things won't be so crazy. -- Rachel Hawkins
Awesome," I murmured, sliding my sunglasses on top of my head. Thanks to the humidity, my hair felt like it had tripled in size. I could feel it trying to devour my sunglasses like some sort of carnivorous jungle plant. "I always wondered what it would be like to live in somebody's mouth. -- Rachel Hawkins
All the magic in the world can't simplify affairs of the heart. (Sophie's dad) -- Rachel Hawkins
Nick leaned forward, his eyes practically burning. Or maybe the rumor is true. Maybe you didn't kill him because you're in love with him. -- Rachel Hawkins
So if you can heal with your touch, why are you working here as like, Hagrid, or whatever? -- Rachel Hawkins
Archer isn't hot anymore ... He tried to kill me, and his girlfriend is Satan. -- Rachel Hawkins
He probably would've raised an eyebrow in that annoying/hot way he had, and made a dirty joke about Elodie possessing me. -- Rachel Hawkins
You're the heir apparent to the head of the Council,ergo-"
"Dad,it is way to early to be using words like 'ergo. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal, Archer, Jenna and I managed to achieve something truly impressive: the *four-way* glance. -- Rachel Hawkins
So really, this was the most guarded pool in the entire state of Alabama. Maybe the most guarded pool in the entire country... but no one had the decency to even drown a little bit.
Honestly. -- Rachel Hawkins
I can't say what my first thought was as I sunk below the surface, because it was mostly a string of four-letter words. -- Rachel Hawkins
Sophie's here, but Elodie's possessing her right now."
"In that case, I'll wait out here," he said. -- Rachel Hawkins
Great. We can pick out our colors."
"For the wedding. I'm thinking melon and mint. Supposed to be really hot next spring."
Cal laughed out loud, the first time I'd ever heard him do that. "It's a plan. See ya, Sophie. -- Rachel Hawkins
Let's just say you may regret that second piece of cake.'
Oh my God. Regret cake? Whatever was about to happen must be truly evil. -- Rachel Hawkins
Only for us would unweird be weird. -- Rachel Hawkins
Please don't joke and bleed at the same time. -- Rachel Hawkins
What are those people doing?" Jenna whispered to me.
"I don't know," I replied through a frozen grin, "but I'm afraid a musical number might be involved. -- Rachel Hawkins
Where the heck was I while you were playing Grand Theft Cellar? -- Rachel Hawkins
I had just killed a teacher. With my shoe. -- Rachel Hawkins
She gave a brittle smile. "The curriculum can be challenging, but I have no doubt that Sophie will do very well."
Never had encouragement sounded so much like a threat. -- Rachel Hawkins
As I moved past him and into the house, I resolved to talk to Cal like a mature grown-up person. Eventually. For now, I gave him a little wave and ran away to my room. -- Rachel Hawkins
The sparks faded, but Cal didn't take his hand off mine. -- Rachel Hawkins
When someone tells you somebody's been murdered, laughing is probably not the best response. You know, for future reference.
But laughing is exactly what I did. -- Rachel Hawkins
I told you, I suck at this. It's like any time I try to do a spell, it goes all big and scary and explodey ... -- Rachel Hawkins
Cross,please, just hold on for a few more minutes, okay? You promised to make out with me in a castle, and I'm holding you to it. -- Rachel Hawkins
Everything suddenly got twistier and more complicated than Mrs. Casnoff's hairdo. -- Rachel Hawkins
Put simply,she freaked me the hell out. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Why would you want me to restore my powers? Because the second I do, I'm blasting my way out of here. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'm not creepy. At least not on purpose. -- Rachel Hawkins
Right, Jenna said. She was sitting on a desk next to me. She spent most of the class reading those mangas she liked so much. -- Rachel Hawkins
I had to hand it to Elodie. If I'd been in control of my body, there would have been flailing and knocking things over, and I probably would have caught my clothes in the drawer. But Elodie smoothly closed the drawer without a sound, and sat down in Lara's chair like she belonged there. -- Rachel Hawkins
I did want to spend the ball with you. -- Rachel Hawkins
I glanced around at everyone. "It's going to be bad. Worse than bad, probably."
"We'll manage it," Cal said.
"Yeah," Jenna said, smiling shakily. "We're kind of badass in our own right."
I gripped her hand. "Damn straight. -- Rachel Hawkins
I'd done lots of impossible things before. No one had thought we could afford five school dances in one year, and hadn't I found the funds? ... We could do this. -- Rachel Hawkins
It's so obnoxious when you're right about stuff. -- Rachel Hawkins
He ran his thumb over my lower lip, sending a flurry of sparks through me. "Good-bye, Sophie." -Cal -- Rachel Hawkins
Honestly, not enough people know how to use good manners as a weapon. -- Rachel Hawkins
Cal's glance fell on our joined hands, and he turned away. -- Rachel Hawkins
Archer turned back to me, and that familiar grin flashed over his face. Come on, Mercer. Me, you, the cellar. What could go wrong? -- Rachel Hawkins
The liquid inside was pitching and rolling, like there was a storm inside the tiny capsule. -- Rachel Hawkins
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
Suddenly, both Archer's and Jenna's hands clamped down on my wrists. -- Rachel Hawkins
Oh my God, you so should have fainted, and then Cal could have caught you and, like, carried you up the staircase. -- Rachel Hawkins
