Quotes Edit

(please fill in the code in source mode with the correct chapter numbers: put chapter number after ch in name="GH6ch" in beginning / and after ch. at end)

“We should all have something to fear, Jessamy.” The feline purred as he stroked slender fingers through its fur. “As we all should have something to hope for. Jason has neither.” - Keir to Jessamy [15]
“We’re all a little broken.” Quiet. Potent. “No one goes through life with a whole heart.” - Keir to Jessamy [15]
"Sometimes, the scars are what make us who we are." - Keir to Raphael and Elena [4]
“Keir is one of the few men whom I will allow to see my consort naked of her armor.” - Raphael to Elena [16]
“Even an archangel needs a weakness - absolute power is a corruption. Of that, Lijuan is the perfect example.” - Keir to Elena [16]
...Seeing the healer sway slightly on his feet, he said, “Rest now, Keir.” Do not let the rage eat away at you. ... Keir glanced up. Now you quote my own words back at me. ... They were wise ones. Said to the angry, broken youth he’d been. “We’ll leave you in peace.” ... The healer’s expression remained tense, but he was no longer pacing when they walked out the door. - Raphael, Elena and Keir [17]
For the first time, I envy you, Raphael. ... Glancing up, he caught Keir’s gaze. It’s not every man who has his lover out for his blood. - Keir to Raphael [18]
...just as she knew he was exhausted from the work he’d been doing with the wounded at the Tower. So she’d offered him a place to rest and, to her surprise, he’d accepted, closing his eyes and dozing quietly in her favorite old armchair. ...It had been strange to see angelic wings of golden brown draped over her furniture, to have someone of such age and power in her living space. - Ashwini and Keir [5]
...she glanced at the doorway to see Keir exchanging an intimate look with a heavily muscled male warrior. The warrior angel’s hand was curved around the side of Keir’s neck, his head bent toward Keir’s shorter and more slender form. Whatever he said made the healer laugh before he slipped out of the warrior’s hold and into the infirmary ... Seeing Elena, he came over. “You look puzzled, Ellie.” ... “I am. Last time I saw you with anyone” - back in the Refuge - “it was a woman.” And he, without a doubt, had stubble burn on the dusky skin of his throat right now. Which meant he’d been getting frisky only seconds before she saw him; Keir was too old for the mark not to have faded otherwise. ... Smile gentle, he said, “I have been alive thousands of years, have learned that love does not always wear a single face.” A warmth in his eyes. “Ah, but it will for you, will it not?” ... “Yes.” Raphael was her heart, would always be her heart. “So, you’re a player?” She sighed. “All this time, I thought you were a nice guy. I introduced you to my single friends, like that sweet squadron leader.” ... His laugh soft, he allowed his wing to brush hers. “If I could find what you have with Raphael, I would stop playing. Until then, I will share pleasure with smaller loves - perhaps even your rather lovely squadron leader.” - Elena and Keir [19]

Quotes Edit

"Keir watched over you as you slept." ... "And sometimes"—a smile on that perfect mouth—"I sang to you, though Illium begged me to stop." — Raphael, Keir [4]
The brand on Sam's cheek, the ugliest of abuses, had been covered by a bandage. "Will that fade before he wakes?" ... "I'll make certain of it." Keir's tone turned so cold it was as if he was another man, a man who'd never known a healer's mercy and never would. "This is a deed that threatens to taint the Refuge forever." [4]
