Fragments from the book
1) This time we did not even bother any journey in time, nor any brazen demon. During the time of the singing of Hallelujah, the kiss continued to be very soft and careful, but then Gideon put both hands on my hair and pulled me behind. This is no longer a soft kiss and the reaction to it surprised me even myself. Suddenly I felt my body very light and gentle and I threw my hands around the neck of Gideon. I have no idea how, but in the next few minutes, without pausing the kiss, we ended up in the green sofa, and there we continued to kiss, until Gideon suddenly got up and saw the clock.
2) Me and Gideon had sent us to make this journey in time, ordering us to get acquainted with Mrs. Tilnei in chronograph (the reason I had fixed it in smoke, but I did not understand it well enough; it was very important to know how to save the world, but before we did this, my cousin Lucius and Paul - who were said to be the wicked of this story - came into play.
3) Love does not stop anything; she does not ask for the door or the dry and overcomes everything. It has no beginning, has etched its wings forever and will strike them to infinity.
