“I ask God to bind my life to your life so that my mind will be one with your mind," I repeat the words Phaedrus says while I gaze at Reed and hold his hand. "My heart may be one with your heart," I recite it with a small smile on my face, "and my body may be one with your body," I blush a little when I say this part, seeing desire register in Reed's eyes. "From this moment through eternity, so let it be.”
“Never disappear from me again.”
“I will never willingly leave you again… but if I do disappear, know that I will fight to come back to you.”
“Then, know that I will never stop looking for you because we are one."
Dear lord, my beautiful Reed. He’s back, better and hotter than ever. My poor baby’s been through the ringer, Evie’s actions lead to many things one of them being Reeds utter emotionally intense heartbreak. God I just wanted to give him a big old cuddle, just make the pain go away. I guess no romance is worth reading if its hunky dory all the freaking time, but Amy really went all out on the emotional rollercoaster on this one. His heart breaking message for Evie totally slayed me, and for her to still insist on staying away? Respect dude, I would have been on the first plane, car, bike, boat whatever to get back to him and ease the pain.
“Evie…where are you? I need…I need you…I can’t exist without you—you have to come back to me,” Reed says, and the pain that those words contain cannot be measured. I can’t see. My tears are blinding me. I save it automatically, but I don’t think I can ever listen to that message again. I don’t ever want to hear his voice sound like that again.
