'Gavril laughed. "She sounds like a feisty one herself." "I get a lot of my stubborness from her." "So you're stubborn, then? have a bit of a temper?" I saw Maxon covering his mouth with his hands, laughing. "Sometimes." "If you have a temper, would you happen to be the one who yelled at our prince?" I sighed. "Yes, it was me. And right now, my mother is having a heart attack." "Make her tell the whole story," Maxon managed to gasp out. "Oh!" Gavril's head swiveled between me and Maxon, "The whole story?" I glared at Maxon before I started. "Well, it was the first day, and I felt sick. I was trying to get outside, and I was practically fainting in the guard's arms when Maxon came by and let me out. Outside, I didn't feel very good, so I ended up accusing him of being selfish and shallow." I heard the Queen and King laugh, and I thought that maybe, just maybe, they saw me as more than just a stranger.' -Quoted by AMERICA

"And why am I still here?" My voice was barely above a whisper. I was sure this was going to hurt. In the pit of my stomach I was sure I was only still here because he was too good to break his promise. "America, I thought I'd made myself clear," Maxon said calmly. He let out a patient sigh and used his hand to nudge by chin. When I was finally looking into his eyes, he confessed. "If this were a simpler matter, I'd have eliminated everyone else by now. I know how I feel about you. Maybe it's impulsive of me to think I could be so sure, but I'm certain I would be happy with you." I blushed. I could feel tears rising, but I blinked them away. The expression on his face was so adoring, I didn't want to miss it. "These are the moment when I feel like you and I have broken down every last wall, and then others when I think you only want to stay for convenience. If I knew that for sure that I, and I alone, was your motivation..."

“Do you think the ability to sleep in counts as a special skill?” I asked Dad, trying to sound torn over the decision. “Yes, list that. And don’t forget to write that you can eat an entire meal in under five minutes,” he replied. I laughed. It was true; I did tend to inhale my food. “Oh, the both of you! Why don’t you just write down that you’re an absolute heathen!” My mother went storming from the room.
