February: Month of Love and Book Boyfriends - Day Sixteen: Elder
Day 16! Today's book boyfriend is:
Name/Book: Elder from Across The Universe Series by Beth Revis
Physical Description/ First Appearance
"The gentle hands steady my head again. A face peers into mine. A boy—about Jason’s age, but taller and broader and more muscly than Jason had been. Dark olive skin; milk-chocolate eyes with flecks of cinnamon that are narrow at the ends, almond-shaped. It’s a handsome face, one I want to trust."
“So, I do what any reasonable person would do when faced with a crying girl. I get the frex out of there”
"I want to take her into my arms and hold her tight. But at the same
time, I know that is the exact opposite of what she wants. She wants to
be free, and all I want is to hold her tight against me."
"And in her smile I see something more beautiful than the stars.”
“If my life on Earth must end, let it end with a promise. Let it end with hope.”
I wrap my pinkie around his. He squeezes my finger, and this world doesn’t feel so cold anymore.
“Will you stay with me?” I whisper.
"I might have the whole world now, but it's not enough if I don't get to share it with her."
