Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Fear is in a talkative mood tonight. He tells me stories, stories I have heard before, stories about the humans he has driven insane with his mere breath. People all around the world at every second of every day know who Fear is, and he relishes it. I listen to every word, feeling my nothingness dig deeper inside of me.

"Come home soon." This time he pressed his lips to her forehead. "And we'll take all the time we want."
"Good thinking." She started for the door, then with a half laugh turned back to look at him. "Whenever you do that, you know, like you just did, I always feel a little drunk after. I kind of like it."
She watched his grin flash before she slipped out the door.
~ Judgement in Death by J.D. Robb, pg. 248
It's a strange feeling to be standing in a driveway at a keg party, fully clothed but soaking wet and wrapped in an oversize towel, talking - or not talking - as the case may be - to the guy who may or may not like you and who you haven't seen in month, who is standing next to your worst enemy, who may or may not be his ex-girlfriend.

I know that I'm in deep trouble.
"Thanks again," I tell Diane.
"Anytime," she says.
I shut the door, and she pulls out of the driveway. It is only then that I realize I never gave her directions to my house.

He thought Cade and I were dating? How freaking oblivious was I? The whole world apparently noticed my best friend's feelings for me. So much for being like Nancy Drew -- I was clearly the Shaggy and Scooby Doo of this scenario.
~ Losing It by Cora Carmack, pg. 121-122
Elise slowly smiles. "Do you trust me?" I shrug. "Come on, Anna. Do you trust me?" I want to laugh it off, but there's something in her expression that keeps me standing there in the middle of the busy sidewalk: determination. Enough to make me believe what she's saying, that I don't have to be lost again. And God, I want it so, so much. I can't go through that again. So I nod.
