I had fun coming up with last Tuesday's post for Blood Debt and decided to pick a few favorite quotes from Centaur Legacy to see if any of you had the same favorites.
Camille: "Images flashed through my mind, not the
comforting ones you’re supposed to see when your life flashes before your
eyes. I relived in a fraction of a
second all the things that had scared me most in my life: the fear of the ocean’s undertow pulling me
hard out to sea, the first time glancing over the side of a twenty-story high
rise, a brown tarantula staring at me from the banister on my front porch,
riding a galloping horse on the beach that refused to stop. . ."
This quote stuck with
me because when Cami has a near death experience, it’s not what she
expects. Instead of seeing all her loved
ones flash before her eyes, she saw things that terrified her in her life. It’s a different take on someone who believes
they have only moment’s left to live. If
you were in your final moments, what would flash before your eyes?
Drake: “I promise to protect you. I promise always to put your needs before
mine. I promise I’ll never let you go to
bed angry, and you’ll never wake up alone.
I promise to love you the rest of my life, and when this life is over,
I’ll spend my eternity in the pasture with you.”
Awe, wouldn’t it be
amazing to hear those words? This is the
betrothal pledge in the Touched Series, and the words are said by the Centaur
to his Centauride. Once the pledge is
spoken, a betrothal connection is established and their souls are bound for
Camille: “Home is wherever you are, Drake. I’m not going anywhere.”
Again, the sappy
romantic in me comes out. This is
something Cami says to Drake after she has searched for him for a week. He tries to convince her to go back to her
family where she’ll be safe and she stubbornly refuses to leave his side.
Any favorites you have that I've left out?
