Hannah's POV

I laughed slightly earning a smile from her as my eyes ran over her once more.

"Okay, so what was your favourite line from that page?" I asked referring to the book, watching as she sat there in the deep thought probably trying to remember the line she had memorized to tell me.

"Now you are a broken seal, a scarlet stain upon the earth," she announced softly looking at me as I stood up moving to sit beside her.

"What does this mean to you?" I asked and she turned giving me her full attention.

"If you live in the past and wallow in pain, you only damage your future and people around you," she replied and I released a small smile, loving her perception of the few words offered.

"What's your quote?" She asked softly her light brown eyes staying with mine, she was so captivating.

"As soon as I glance at you a moment, I can't say a thing, and my tongue stiffens into silence, thin flames underneath my skin prickle and spark, a rush of blood booms in my ears, and then my eyes go dark," I repeated word for word.

"What does it mean to you?" She asked

"It represents the feeling you get, when you become attracted to someone, not just physically but mentally and spiritually, the feeling that falling in love evokes," I confessed my eyes moving to her lips for a split second before returning to her eyes.

"Have you ever been in love?" I asked her.

"No,"

"So I presume you can't relate to the feeling I just described?" I asked and she leaned forward slightly before moving back to where she was originally taking her top lip between her teeth, before releasing it.

"I-"

"Patience sweetheart," Claude called out cutting her off, immediately frustrating me and she turned facing him.

"Yes Claude," she replied her voice small

"I didn't know you were here," he announced taking a seat and I sighed knowing he didn't plan on leaving any time soon.

"I came to see Hannah," she replied

"You two have been getting awfully close, will Hannah be the maid of honour on our big day?" He asked smiling

"Her sister has already filled that position," I told him clearing my throat slightly wishing he would leave. He continued to talk and I sat there blocking out their conversation, not really interested. The thought of their soon to be union dampened my mood drastically, it was human nature to love, but to be this captivated by someone in a matter of weeks was a blessing, but also a curse since it was as forbidden as the fruit in the garden of Eden.

After what felt like hours he dismissed himself walking away, I watched as he left my limps relaxing slightly.

"I thought you said you've never been in love?" I asked looking over to her.

"This has nothing to do with love, it's more tradition, if I had a say I would gladly die alone," she replied making me smile.

"Spoken like a true bride," I joked and she rolled her eyes playfully.
