~+*+~ CHAPTER ONE ~+*+*~

"Some coherent part of me immediately realized what was happening—and boy, was it pissed off."
- Rose Ha
thaway (Shadow Kiss)

"This wouldn't have been a problem if the two of them had been in bed like normal people-and by "being in bed," I mean "asleep.""
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


"She didn't understand what it was like to be filled with a love so strong that it made your chest ache-a love you could only feel and not express."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


"Keeping love buried was a lot like keeping anger pent up, I'd learned. It just ate you up inside until you wanted to scream or kick something."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


"Praying the doors wouldn't squeak, I carefully opened one a crack, just enough to slip through. Once outside, I eased the door shut as gently as possible. No noise. At most, the guy would feel a draft. Feeling like a ninja, I stepped out into the light of day.
I spun around, startled. Dimitri stood there watching me, looking both amused and curious. ... I hadn't heard him approach at all. So much for my ninja skills."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"It would figure that while I was raging over the problems in my unfair love life, the source of those problems would be the one to find me."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"Honestly, would it have killed me to pick up a brush before I went outside? Hastily, I ran a hand through my long hair, knowing it was a little too late. It probably looked like an animal had died on top of my head."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss

Rose: "I was testing dorm security. It sucks."
Dimitri: "You must be freezing. Do you want my coat?"
Rose: "I'm fine. What are you doing out here? Are you testing security too?"
Dimitri: "I am security. This is my watch."
Rose: "Well, good work. I'm glad I was able to help test your awesome skills."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Shadow Kiss)


Dimitri: "What are you really doing out here?"
Rose: "I had a bad dream. I wanted some air."
Dimitri: "And so you just rushed out. Breaking the rules didn't even cross your mind—and neither did putting on a coat."
Rose: "Yeah. That pretty much sums it up."
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "I think you're the one who's cold. Shouldn't you be all tough and stuff, since you're from Siberia?"
Dimitri: "I don't think Siberia's exactly what you imagine."
Rose: "I imagine it as an arctic wasteland."
Dimitri: "Then it's definitely not what you imagine."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "Well, don't worry. My birthday's coming up. ..."
Dimitri: "Yes, I'm sure. What is it about a month?"
Rose: "Thirty-one days"
Dimitri: "Not that your counting. I suppose you've made a birthday list too. Ten pages? Single-spaced? Ranked by order of priority?"
- Rose Hathaway and
Dimitri Belikov (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Call me crazy for asking this, but, um, are Lissa and I going with you?"
Dimitri: "No."
Rose: "No?"
Dimitri: "No."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWO ~+*+*~

"I hated being chastised by anyone. I especially hated being chastised by him (Dimitri). And I especially hated being chastised by him when he was right."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


"That shut me down. It was pretty much the only thing that could have, and damn him (Dimitri), he knew it."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


"I was about to spend six weeks with Christian Ozera. He was sarcastic difficult, and made jokes about everything. Actually, he was a lot like me. It was going to be a long six weeks."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


~+*+~ CHAPTER THREE ~+*+*~

Adrian: "What happened, then? You're stomping through every puddle you can find and look like you're going to punch the first person you see."
Rose: "Why are you hanging around, then? Aren't you worried about getting hit?"
Adrian: "Aw you'd never hurt me. My face is too pretty."
Rose: "I got assigned to Christian for my field experience."
Adrian: "Wow. Now I understand. In light of that, you actually seem remarkably calm."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Smoking's not allowed on campus. Abby Badica got two weeks' detention when she got caught."
Adrian: "I'm abouve the rules, Rose. I'm neither student nor staff, merely a free spirit wandering your fair school as I will."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "... you don't hang out with him 24/7"
Lissa: "Neither will you. It's only 24/6"
Rose: "Same difference. It might as well be 24/10"
Lissa: "That doesn't make sense"
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Shadow Kiss)


They (Jesse & Ralf) stalked off, and I heard something that sounded suspiciously like "Crazy bitch."
Rose: "Jerks, Oh hey Doughnuts."
- Rose Hathaway, Jesse Zeklos and Ralf Sarcozy (Shadow Kiss)


Eddie: "If I didn't know any better, I'd say you just defended Christian's honor. Isn't he a pain in the ass?"
Rose: "Yes, he is. But for the next six weeks, he's my pain in the ass."
- Eddie Castile and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"Look, Rose. You don't have to keep up with the hard-to-get thing. You've already got me."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"Don't worry, little dhampir. You might be surrounded by clouds, but you'll always be like sunshine to me."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER FOUR ~+*+*~

"...Dimitri, I now saw-grabbed Camille. She screamed, not faking her fear. She apparently didn't find being in Dimitri's arms as thrilling as I did."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Do you have, like, a T. rex that you're going to feed?"
Christian: "Only if you want some."
- Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Shadow Kiss)


Christian: "You did not just say that. I have a feeling we're on the verge of hugging and coming up with cute nicknames for eachother."
Rose: "I already have a nickname for you, but I'll get in trouble if I say it in class."
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


~+*+~ CHAPTER FIVE ~+*+*~

"I either confessed to screwing up majorly or to having seen a ghost. Neither option was appealing, but I had to cut my losses. One made me look incompetent. The other made me look insane. I didn`t want to be assoiated with either of those. I much preferred my usual description of "reckless" and "disuptive.""
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

Dimitri: "Rose. You're a terrible liar."
Rose: "No, I'm not. I've told a lot of good lies in my life. People have believed them."
- Dimitri  Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER SIX ~+*+*~

Ryan: "Okay, okay. Whatever. Please, stop it. You're scaring her (Camille)."

Rose: "I'd be scared too, if my life was in your hands."
- Ryan Aylesworth and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "Come on, You know me. Do you really think I'd do this? Abandon Christian and make myself look stupid on purpose just to get back at my teachers?"
Lissa: "No, You'd probably do it in a way where you wouldn't get caught."
Rose: "Dimitri said the same thing. I'm glad everyone has so much faith in me."
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Shadow Kiss)

"Even I make mistakes. I know it's hard to believe-kind of suprises me myself-but I guess it has to happen. It's probably some kind of karmic way to balance out the universe. Otherwise, it wouldn't be fair to have one person so full of awesomeness."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"This is politics. People in power never have to play by the same rules."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Christian: "I'm going to go take care of this right now."
Adrian: "Sure. I bet going in there and kicking down the door will change their minds. Take Rose with you, and you guys'll make a really good impression."
- Christian Ozera and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER SEVEN ~+*+*~

Adrian: "Isn't your dad some Turkish guy anyway?"
Rose: "Yeah, According to my- Hey, are you staring at my chest?"
- Adrian Ivashkov and  Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"I'm always crazy around you Rose. Here, I'm going to write an impromptu poem for you." 
He tipped his head back and shouted to the sky: 
"Rose is in red
But never in blue
Sharp as a thorn
Fights like one too."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"Art doesn't have to make sense, little dhampire. Besides, I'm supposed to be crazy, right?"
-Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"People who are crazy rarely question whether they're crazy."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER EIGHT ~+*+*~

Lissa: "That's what I love about you. You have no idea how you'll get us to court, but you still push forward anyway to make me feel better."
Rose: "Is it working?"
Lissa: "Yes."
- Lissa Dragomir and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "Are you sober?"
Adrian: "Sober enough."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Then suddenly he 
(Adrian) raked his nails across his hand and drew blood.
"Jesus Christ! Are you insane?" Who was I kidding? Of course he was.
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"Grossed out by Adrian's self-mutilation?" Giving Christian a hard time was a guilty pleasure. I could do this all night.
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER NINE ~+*+~

"Between Victor, ghosts, and the field experiences, it was honestly a wonder I could still string words together anymore."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"Now rumors of my humiliation were trickling down to the lower campuses. If I walked over to the elementary dorms, some six-year-old would probably tell me she'd heard that I killed Christian."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "What other stories?” 
Jill: "About how you and Adrian Ivashkov are-“ 
Rose: "No, whatever you heard it’s not true.” 
Jill: "But it was really romantic” 
Rose: "Then it’s definitely not true!”
- Rose Hathaway and Jillian Mastrano (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TEN ~+*+~

Rose: "It's ok. You're just getting your stride back. Once you're up to full power, I'll go crack a rib or something so we can test it." 
Lissa: "The horrible part is that I don't think you're joking."
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWELVE ~+*+~

"None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that I could make a real contribution in these dark times? My cigarettes and I are going outside. At least they show me respect."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWENTY ~+*+~

I'd noticed she (Deidre) had a habit of answering my questions with questions.
Deidre: "Have you ever had sex with anyone?"
Rose: "No. Are you saying I should have?"
Deidre: "Do you think you should have?"
Damn. I'd thought I had her. I'd thought for sure she wouldn't have a question for that one.
Deidre: "That's not what I asked."
Rose: "Yeah, but—" I stopped. "Hey, you didn't ask a question."
Deidre: "You think I always ask questions?"
Rose: "Never mind.
- Deirdre and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Deirdre: "Would you rather not talk about Lissa today?" 
Rose: "We can talk about whatever you think is useful."
Deirdre: "What do you think is useful?"
Rose - Damn it. She was doing the question thing again. I wondered if one of the certificates on her wall gave her some sort of special qualification to do that.
- Deirdre and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Dimitri: "No, it wont happen to you. You're too strong. You will fight it, just like you did this time"
Rose: "I only did it because you were here, I cant do it by myself"
Dimitri: "You can, you're strong--you're so, so strong. Its why I love you"
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Wait. You think I'm going to die? That's why you slept with me?" 
Dimitri: " No, no, of course not. I did what I did because... believe me, it wasn't because of that. Regardless of the specifics- or if it`s even true- she (Rhonda) was right about how easily things can change. We try to do what`s right, or rather, what others say is right. But sometimes, when that goes against who we are... you have to choose. Even before the Strigoi attack, as I watched all the problems you were struggling with, I realized how much you mean to me. It changed everything. I was worried about you- so, so worried. You have no idea. And it became useless to try to act I could ever put any Moroi life above yours. It`s not going to happen, no matter how wrong others say it is. And so i decided that`s something I have to deal with. Once I made that decision... there was nothing to hold us back. Well, to hold me back. I`m speaking for myself. I don`t mean to act like I know exactly why you did it." 
Rose: " I did it because I love you," I said, like it was the most obvious thing in the world. And really, it was. 
Dimitri: "You can sum up in one sentence what it takes me a whole speech to get out." 
Rose: "Because it`s that simple. I love you, and I don`t want to keep pretending that I don`t."
- Rose Hathaway & Dimitri Belikov (Shadow Kiss)


Dimitri: "I also have a feeling your mother's going to have one ugly conversation with me."
Rose: "You're about to go face down Strigoi, and my mother's the one you're scared of?"
Dimitri: "She's a force to be reckoned with. Where do you think you got it from?"
Rose: "It's a wonder you bother with me then."
Dimitri: "You're worth it, believe me."
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Stop it! Do not use compulsion on me. You're my friend. Friends dont use their powers on each other"
Lissa: "Friends don't abandon each other. If you're my friend you wouldnt do it."
Rose: "It's not about you,okay? This time, its about me. Not you. All my life, lissa ... all my life, it's been the same. They come first. I've lived my life for you. I've trained to be your shadow, but you know what? I want to come first. I need to take care of myself for once. I'm tired of looking out for everyone else and having to put aside what I want. Dimitri and I did that, and look at what happened. He's gone. I will never hold him again. Now I owe it to him to do this. I'm sorry if it hurts you, buts it's my choice!"
Lissa: "You love him more than me,"
Rose: "He needs me right now."
Lissa: "I need you. He's gone, Rose."
Rose: "No, but he will be soon"
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Shadow Kiss)

"I set off, off to kill the man I loved."
- Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)
