Will vs. Jem
And because I’m having a hangover with Clockwork Prince, let me share you something! =)
Both boys of this book have finally confessed their true feelings for Theresa Gray.
Firstly, this is from James Carstairs:
I cannot explain love. I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth, But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you. That you were the center of everything I did and felt and thought.
There is a force and strength in love. That is what that inscription means. It is in the Shadowhunter wedding ceremony, too. For love is as strong as death. Have you not seen how much better I have been these past weeks, Tessa? I have been ill less, coughing less. I feel stronger, I need less of the drug—because of you. Because my love for you sustains me.
Now, this is William Herondale’s:
When I first met you, I thought you were unlike anyone else I had ever known. You made me laugh. No one but Jem has made me laugh in, good God, five years. And you did it like it was nothing, like breathing.
I read them all. Every word you wrote. You and I, Tess, we’re alike. We live and breathe words. It was books that kept me from taking my own life after I thought I could never love anyone, never be loved by anyone again. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, I with them. Reading yours words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt—I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamed. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted—and then I realized that truly I just wanted you. The girl behind the scrawled letters. I loved you from the moment I read them. I love you still.
I think I have exposed too much? But this is just so much! I can’t really contain my feelings for the both sides. I can’t even choose one for Tessa.
And like…my mind’s bursting with stories and with what can happen next to them? To whom will Tessa fall for in the end? Gush. Come on Clockwork Princess! Where are youuuuuuuuu? Because I still don’t know if it’s out already at our place.
Anyways…how about you? To whom would you like Tessa to be with?
