“I do not hate you.”

“Hit me again.”

“I need another.”

“Stay on this train until the end of the line.”
“This is all I have.”
She stared at him, saying nothing.
He knows it’s wrong, but he can’t help himself.

“What if he says no?”

“You really got ripped off.”

“What kind of woman does something like that?”

I told her I couldn’t.”

“I never said a word.”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea.”

She couldn’t talk to him anymore.

“Turn the music up, please.”

I’ve never been in love before.

“He’s just a friend.”

“Of course it’s stupid.”

“Do you think we should do it?”

All they needed was each other.

“Why do you ask?”

I had never imagined the end of the world.

“Get out of my house.”

“Do you ever get lonely?”

“I don’t need your help.”

She squints in the bright light pouring in through the windows.

“You never listen to me.”

“There’s a time and a place.”

“You promised me.”

“I’m so, so sorry.”

“Your hair smells like strawberries.”

“I don’t like the snow.”

“Funny weather, isn’t it?”

“Excuse me.”

“What do you think?”

“We’re out of milk.”

“What time is it?”

“You’re stupid.”

She was not a beautiful woman.

“How are you, really?”

“Do you find me attractive?”

“Are you married?”

“I’m a moron.”

“How could I have avoided it?”

“No, I’m not sorry.”

He thought he was better off without her.

“Forget I said anything.”

She had grown to love the sound of rain.

  1. Simply desire to say your article is as astounding.
    The clarity in your post is simply nice and i can assume you are an expert on
    this subject. Well with your permission let me to grab
    your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  3. All you need for a successful blog is a platform (I highly recommend WordPress or Blogger), a concept, and a good-looking theme. This blog, as of right now, isn’t costing me anything. Someday I hope to purchase my own domain, but until then, it’s easy and cheap to host on WordPress. The best advice, overall, that I can give you is this: blog for three months without telling anybody. Three months is long enough to get a feel for whether or not you’ll enjoy blogging. Plus, when people start learning about your blog, there will already be a backlog of posts for them to go through. I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
