“For a handful of moments, the sky would turn monstrous, purpled and marbled as if someone had beaten it senseless. One might call it cruel. And yet without it, you’d never notice the stars”
“Fear is like a curse. But I choose differently.”
The romance between Night and Death was extremely electrifying without there needing to be that much physical affection shown. This story really brought out what love really is about, and that’s it’s something that is out of our control and can happen without us even realising it. It’s about not wanting to live without the other and knowing that your partner is building you up to be the best version of yourself that you deserve to be.
Death has found his perfect equal and Night has found the one who will elevate her to the position of recognition that she deserves.
“I want to lie beside you and know the weight of your dreams. I want to share the whole worlds with you and write your name in the stars. I want to measure eternity with your laughter. Be my queen and I promise you a life where you will never be bored. I promise you more power than a hundred kings. And I promise you that we will always be equals.”
