love


My absolute favourite part of one of my absolute favourite books:

“What do you think love is – a thing to startle from the heart like a bird at every shout or blow? You can fly from me, high as you choose into your darkness, but you will see me always beneath you, no matter how far away, with my face turned to you. My heart is in your heart. I gave it to you with my name that night and you are its guardian, to treasure it, or let it wither and die.  I do not understand you. I am angry with you. I am hurt and helpless, but nothing would fill the ache of the hollowness in me where you name would echo if I lost you.” Coren to Sybel in The Forgotten Beasts of Eld

Oh, sigh.
