"It was a further relief to look away from him as she turned around. The moon, directly overhead now, lit everything nearly to daylight brightness. In between one step and another she saw a white spark struck off something on the floor: It was the knife Jace had been using to cut apples, lying on its side. She jerked hastily back to avoid stepping on it, and her shoulder bumped his—he put a hand out to steady her, just as she turned to apologize, and then she was somehow in the circle of his arm and he was kissing her.
It was at first almost as if he hadn't wanted to kiss her: His mouth was hard on hers, unyielding; then he put both arms around her and pulled her against him. His lips softened. She could feel the rapid beat of his heart, taste the sweetness of apples still on his mouth. She wound her hands into his hair, as she'd wanted to do since the first time she'd seen him. His hair curled around her fingers, silky and fine. Her heart was hammering, and there was a rushing sound in her ears, like beating wings—
Jace drew away from her with a muffled exclamation, though his arms were still around her. "Don't panic, but we've got an audience." "
The mortal instruments City of Bones, Cassandra Clair, page 99 in the ebook.
Surrounded by rainforest and ocean, I draw inspiration from the world around me, natural light and movement. I love colour, cool sunny days with big fluffy clouds and curling up with a good book.|
I am an artist, a coffee drinker and a happy snap taker. I draw because it makes the world make sense, and I don't know what I would do if I couldn't. I photograph because I want to capture what is around me. I try to capture the movement, light, small moments and happiness to help others reflect and see, and to give myself a sense of purpose.
I love being creative and artistic and don't know how to be any other way, nor would I want to be.
