"They were starting to get what they wanted from me. I stayed close to my mom and Nash, and that worked for a while, but it wasn't enough. Only two years dead, and it was getting harder for me to feel... anything. I was starting to slip into the darkness. The numbness. And the worst part is that it wasn't even scary. I was losing myself, and I didn't even care. Then I met you, and at first I didn't understand what had happened. What had changed. All I knew was that I wanted to be near you. Then you helped me with Addison, even though it nearly got you killed - I nearly got you killed - and I started to understand how special you are. But by then, you were getting serious with Nash. With my brother - one of few people in the whole world I still gave a damn about. So I tried to stay away. I tried so hard." His voice cracked on the last word, and my heart cracked with it. Tears stood in my eyes, but I was afraid to let them fall. I was afraid to even breathe for fear of missing a single word. "But you kept pulling me back. You're the brightest thing I've ever seen, Kaylee. You're this beautiful ball of fire spitting sparks out at the world, burning fiercely, holding back the dark by sheer will. And I always knew that if I reached out - if I tried to touch you  - I'd get burned. Because you're not mine. I'm not supposed to feel the fire. I'm not supposed to want it. But I do. I want you, Kaylee, like I've never wanted anything. Ever. I want the fire. I want the heat, and the light, and I want the burn."

This week, I went back and picked an all time favorite swoon worthy moment. I love this series and I love Tod and this is one of his finer moments!
