  • Casper shared from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
    “I just can’t believe that life would give us to each other,” he said, “and then take it back.” “I can,” she said. “Life’s a bastard.” He held her tighter, and pushed his face into her neck. “But it’s up to us…” he said softly. “It’s up to us not to lose this.”
