How would you like to be immortalized in a book? 

  1. Fallon’s mom was supportive of her decisions.
  2. How confident and charming ben is.
  3. How ben converse like in a book, a true writer. **SWOON**
  4. Love the idea of the whole pretend-in-a-relationship
  5. The idea of TATTOO on your wrist – right when you feel that you’re finally in love.
  6. Ben picking something from Fallon’s teeth – a gross thing but a sweet gesture when someone is in love.

  • The truth is an excruciatingly painful son of a bitch
  • Sometimes at night, I’ll rewrite conversations I had during the day, but I’ll change them up to reflect everything I wish I could have said in the moment.
  • You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.
  • She doesn’t hold a candle to you.
  • If we’re going to kiss, it has to be book worthy.
  • Using you as a standard is completely unfair to the rest of the whole female population.
  • Guys see boobs coupled with a great sense of humor and think they found the holy fucking grail.
  • Comfort can sometimes be a crutch when it comes to figuring out your life.
  • Goals are achieved through discomfort and hard work. They aren’t achieved when you hide out in a place where you’re nice and cozy.
  • Go easy on me. My heart is fragile.
  • I hope they laugh at you, fallon. If people are laughing at you, it means you’re putting yourself out there to be laughed at. Not enough people have the courage to even take that step.
  • I didn’t even know that kisses could really make eyelids flutter open.
  • You’re incomparable.
  • There will always be bullies, ben. You need to learn how to deal with them yourself. You need to learn how to not let them get to you.
  • If she’s not careful, I might just fall in love with her tonight.
  • He’s soaking me up like it’s a privilege rather than a favor.
  • I don’t want to be your first fallon. I want to be your last.
  • In the real life, you have to bust your ass for the happy ever after.
  • When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. you can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.
  • Im really in love with her. – like crippling, debilitating, paralyzing love.
  • the only thing not going right in my life is the fact that you aren’t a part of it every single day.
  • When you love someone, you owe it to them to help them be the best version of themselves that they can be.
  • Though lovers be lost, love shall not.
  • You’ll know, ben. When you’re willing to give up the things that mean the most to you just to see someone else happy, that’s real love.
  • You saved me the day we met, fallon.
  • Because I’m going to love her through every single one of them.
