Revelations (Blue Bloods #3)

All his gentleness, all his kindness, all the bright shining gorgeousness of his love, he had always given to someone else.

And Kingsley being Kingsley, he smiled as he pretended to pull the trigger.

...and Schuyler hoped with all her heart that he would never find out the truth.

Bet you can't even name one romantic movie you like," she teased.
She felt smug when a few minutes went by and Oliver was still unable to name one romantic movie he could profess to enjoy.
The Empire Strikes Back," Oliver finally declared, tapping his horn at a Prius that wandered over the line.
The Empire Strikes Back? The Star Wars movie? That's not romantic!" Schuyler huffed, fiddling with the air conditioner controls.
Au contraire, my dear, it's very romantic. The last scene, you know, when they're about to put Han in that freezing cryogenic chamber or whatever? Remember?"
Schuyler mmm-hmmmed.
And Leia leans over the ledge and says, 'I love you.'"
That's cheesy, not romatic," Schuyler argued, although she did like that part.
Let me explain. What's romantic is what Han says back. Remember what he says to her? After she says 'I love you'?"
Schuyler grinned. Maybe Oliver had a point. "Han says, 'I know.'"
Exactly," Oliver tapped the wheel. "He doesn't have to say anything so trite as 'I love you." Because that's already understood. And that's romantic.

But as they say, love is blind.

Even if they end up together, which I highly doubt, given the strength of that particular bond-...-but even if Schuyler still loves him, or thinks she does, it doesn't matter.
Because Jack is going to leave her one day. i know he will. He's too much for Schuyler. They're wrong for each other. Anyone can see that.
And when he leaves her, I'll be there.
However long it takes, I'll still be there for her.

He knew what it was like to love one who did not--or could not--love you back. But he'd had no choice. None of them did.

HE was standing across the street, staring at her with a look of shock and dismay. One look in Oliver's eyes and she knew he knew. But how? How could he have known? The'd been so careful to keep their love a secret. The grief etched all over his face was too much to bear. Schuyler felt the words catch in her throat as she crossed the stree to stand in front of him. "'s not..." Oliver shot her a look of pure hatred, turned on his heel and began to run away. "OLIVER, please,let me explain..

I can't let you take the risk. I love you too much." -Schuyler
"Then you would rather see me bonded to a women I do not love?"

I don't know, I just feel like love isn't supposed to be so...angsty, you know? Like, if it works, it shouldn't be so tortured."

I don't know who you are. But I do know that every time I see you, I feel better." -Dylan

I don’t want to make the same mistakes I’ve made before. I want to be free. I want to be with you. We will be together. I believe I will have less to live for, if I am not with you.

If you are sorry, you will leave him. Jack will never be yours, Schuyler. Not like I am yours."

I just want us to be together," he said. "I mean, know it's not possible. But why not? [...] Don't you want us to be together? -Oliver

I'm tired of being your best friend. I'm tired of being second best. I won't settle for that anymore. It's all or nothing, Schuyler. You have to decide. Him or me.

- Oliver Hazzard-Perry

I want to be with you. We will be together. I believe I will have less to live for, if I am not with you."

I was so afraid. I was afraid of losing you."
"Never, my love. We will always be together.

Love. It's so close to hate, it's almost indistinguishable.

Love. It's so close to hate, it's almost indistinguishable. But this is how it was for the two of them. Love and hate. Life and death. Joy and anguish.

Once the bond was sealed, it could not be broken for this cycle. Schuyler would become nothing more than a distant memory.

Tonight the world is yours, as am I.
