I ask because I'm typing out A Quick Bite for my daughter to read (so I can edit out the more adult parts) and just ran across a scene that had slipped from my mind... when Thomas has Lissi to close her eyes so he can feed her with bagged blood.
And.. this one I've always loved... when Thomas draws a hot bath and has a huge breakfast sent up to Inez to apologize for walking by her at the airport, then locks the bathroom door behind him so she can have her privacy without worry.
hmmm.. sure I'll think of others but those two really stick out right now.
how bout when Julius took Marguerite to the train bathroom because she looked pale for not "eating" enough, then again it led to..well you know what
or when Marguerite took the blow when whats her face was gonna chop off Christians head
or how Mabel and Teddy tried their best to find a mate for Elvi because they noticed that everyone in their age group had been hittin the dirt and they didnt want her to be alone
when all the men went with Elvi for cheesecake and a bed
when Kate offered Luc her blood because he was paler than usual. so he went and bit her in the bathroom which hurt her a bit if i remember correctly
when Thomas showed Inez that there was a more beautiful side to Amsterdam. also when he saved her by not letting her take a picture of the ladies
I think my favorite sweet part was when Katie was willing to commit a felony so Lucern could have blood.
Also agree about Elvi and the cheesecake ride. And when the whole town was going to defend Elvi against big bad Lucian. Actually that whole book was filled with sweet moments. No wonder Gena loves Victor.
1) I loved it Leigh bailed on Victor because of headache and he brought her up water and tylonol...
2) and Leigh didn't want to take advantage of him because she thought Victor drank the drink Thomas tryed to switch....
3) or when Etienne and Rachel played his video game all night....(that is sweet to me cause hubby and used to do that while we were dating!...and still do sometimes!! )
4) and even though he felt ba for putting her in the position in the first place...when BASTEIN sat up for almost a week while Inez was recovering...he wouldn't leave her side, just to prove to Thomas how sorry he was!!
G3 of the emotional AE4!
Angel this is a great thread. Thanks.
You must mean LUCIAN. V was not in BMIYC.
Those are the ones I would choose also.
Can you say "Sweet?"
C1 of the AE4. Who must go find food or will not be able to play..
wow.. I agree all of those are sweet moments! And yeah, kinda thought everyone would like this thread. I've not had a chance to think on more to post... worked all day (blah)
When Marguerite holds baby Luciana for the very first time.
It reminded me of holding my first niece, Tabitha, for the first time. Sorta. :)
I loved when Bastien calmed Terri down when she upset about the catering companies dumping all that food on them. Then he called her "Baby" and "Sweetheart" and she went all gooey. Aww......
This one is for my favorite big sis.
When Lucian took Leigh shopping even though he had to make a phone call and instead allowed Etienne to do it giving up control which had to be so hard for him to do so she she could get some needed items. Aww.....
Angel that is so sweet re-writing the books for your daughter to read. I have 2 daughters 13 & 15 that I read my fave books to. It's hard to find common ground when your kids get to the teen years and reading together seems to give us at least a few things to talk about....lol
You have teenagers Joey. That must be hard.
Another aww moment. How about when Lucian and Leigh went grocery shopping and Leigh sided herself with Lucian instead of the "children" Mortimer and Bricker.
Lucian went all mushy on the inside.
That was just too cute
It's the same for us, actually. My daughter and I don't have a lot in common except that our reading taste are very similiar. Weird but my son and I are very much alike in many things. lol
Rachel stepping in front of an ax for Etienne
Kate offering herself to Lucern at the ball, for blood girls! ;)
As well as crawling under the table to unhook him :)
Thomas drawing Inez a bubble bath (Gawds, I WISH!)
Julius fleeing down the street with Marguarite over his shoulder.
Vincent sitting beside Jackie during her turning.
Victor & Elvi...uh, just about everything he did was sweet! Well, okay, yelling at her for being outside in the burning shed did NOT score points, but when he was trying to get her 'back in bed' and the men tried to bust in.... "She needs a keeper."
"I'll keep her"
How bout when Lucian was looking after Leigh and he brought her "food" because she was hungry...again its the thought that counts
C1...you were the only one who got that.....
I put Victor in, just because its Victor! and to admit i thik Lucian is seet would give you an advantage in my fight to get everyone converted!!
yes i meant Lucian was very sweet.....
but I won't ever say it again!!
and besides Lucian can have sweet...
I like how Bastien, a freakin' work-a-holic if there ever was one pretty much made time for Terri even though he really didn't have to, and all the stuff they got to do when he took her out (even though he was "allergic to the sun") then flying to England to try to win her back.
Also... he tried to calm her fears when she was afraid of being intimate with him after so long. Good Man.
Yes Bastien = Sweet, Lucian=Sweet (albeit a little grumpy) and Victor=Sweet. But where does Lucern rate?
Lucern = the strong, silent sexy man who doens't have to be sweet to be loving
Thank you Gena makes feel a little bit better. All grump makes my Lucern a dull boy.
