Too tired to fight her tears anymore, she let them fall and stood shaking on the rooftop.
"You shouldn't be afraid to wear it anymore," she told him.
He didn't answer to her anymore, as he had for thousands of years.
You aren't surviving day-to-day anymore as you have your whole life, and for the first time, you're fighting for something other than you.
I know I haven't been the best of friends, so if you don't want to talk to me anymore, I'll understand.
It seemed that they rarely saw him anymore and those boys weren't the best influence.
Her mind was too weak to talk to him anymore; she'd gone silent this afternoon.
Resistance was becoming harder, but she wasn't going to put him in danger anymore than she would her cousins.
"You're not an immortal anymore," the Other snapped.
"I take pleasure in knowing you can't sense me anymore, love," he replied with a half-smile.
While she didn't fear dying anymore, she was in no hurry to die, either.
"You're not walking away from me anymore than I will from you," he said firmly.
She wasn't going to, anymore than she had to the tumor.
Not so brave anymore, are you, little girl.
Not so tough anymore, are you, little girl.
You.re not independent anymore, Gabriel.
She sat at the edge of the bed and touched Toby.s soft face, not sure what to do or think about anything anymore, especially now that Hannah had been dragged into this world.
It was all he heard anymore, that Katie would be safe and happy only if he wasn.t around.
I.m not six anymore, Mama.
Nothing hurts anymore, Rhyn thought.
And then I saw how good his heart is. He's a train wreck, but he's honorable and capable of such good. Kris pulled me into this world and assumed I'd do what I was told like a good little human. But when I told Rhyn I wanted to leave him, he asked for another chance. It's like he woke up then and realized he wasn't in Hell anymore or trapped by his brothers' expectations.
"He did. He wanted to make the world safer for me, for our …" Katie's throat tightened. She cleared it. "He realized he doesn't have to be in the shadows anymore. And the way he looked at me that last day…" she drifted off again, this time recalling the intensity of emotion on Rhyn's face the last time she'd seen him in the mortal realm.
Rhyn said nothing, aware the creature before him couldn't be trusted anymore than Death.
I don't think he has a reason to try anymore, Kiki said at last.
Every day. I swear it. We won't be apart anymore. We'll stay here until I can get the castle cleaned out and beat the shit out of my brothers. They'll be moving in, even if they don't know it yet. And that's where Hazel will hatch and live.
There's nothing between us anymore but friendship and I don't want to ruin that with this kind of talk.
You don't like it anymore either?
He won't hurt you anymore, Claire.
"Oh, he's not a vamp anymore," Yully said with her musical Irish lilt.
"He won't be eatin' anymore of my rabbits," Yully said with satisfaction.
"Not anymore," he agreed.
"I can't take it anymore," Jessi said a few minutes later.
I don't have a home anymore and tomorrow I won't even have my name.
"Our location isn't secret anymore," she responded in a troubled tone.
Since learning that Elisabeth regenerated blood faster than it could be drained, he didn't buy the protection theory anymore, and was convinced this was some kind of well-deserved penance.
No, I'm not anymore, he said, thoughts growing dark.
"You don't get to tell me what to do anymore," he whispered against her ear.
"We may not need the information anymore," Gabriel said pensively.
