Quotes About Rose
“The spell. Victor said you had to want me… to care about me… for it to work.” When he didn’t say anything, I tried to grip his shirt, but my fingers were too weak. “Did you? Did you want me?”
His words came out thickly. “Yes, Roza. I did want you. I still do. I wish… we could be together.”
“Then why did you lie to me?”
We reached the clinic, and he managed to open the door while still holding me. As soon as he stepped inside, he began yelling for help.
“Why did you lie?” I murmured again.
Still holding me in his arms, he looked down at me. I could hear voices and footsteps getting closer.
“Because we can’t be together.”
“Because of the age thing, right?” I asked. “Because you’re my mentor?”
His fingertip gently wiped away a tear that had escaped down my cheek. “That’s part of it,” he said. “But also… well, you and I will both be Lissa’s gaurdians someday. I need to protect her at all cost. If a pack of Strogoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her.”
I know that. Of course that’s what you have to do.” The black sparkles were dancing in front of my eyes again. I was fading out.
“No. If I let myself love you, I won’t throw myself in front of her. I’ll throw myself in front of you.”
“Stop fighting me!” he said, trying to pull on the arm he held.
He was in a precarious position himself, straddling the rail as he tried to lean over far enough to get me and actually hold onto me.
âLet go of me!â I yelled back.
But he was too strong and managed to haul most of me over the rail, enough so that I wasnât in total danger of falling again.
See, hereâs the thing. In that moment before I let go, I really had been contemplating my death. Iâd come to terms with it and accepted it. I also, however, had known Dimitri might do something exactly like this. He was just that fast and that good. That was why I was holding my stake in the hand that was dangling free.
I looked him in the eye. “I will always love you.”
Then I plunged the stake into his chest.
It wasnât as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.
“Thatâs what I was supposed to say. . .â he gasped out.
Those were his last words.”Tags: blood, bridge, death, dhampir, dimitri, love, magic, promise, rose, stake, strigoi
