this, always: this and this and this


"a surety rose within me, lodged in my throat. i will never leave him. it will be this, always, for as long as he will let me."

"my tongue ran away from me, giddy with freedom. this and this and this, i said to him. [...] this and this and this!"

"...the memories well up like springwater, faster than i can hold them back. [...] this, i say. this and this. the way his hair looked in summer sun. his face when he ran. his eyes, solemn as an owl at lessons. this and this and this."

--Madeline Miller, the song of achilles
