“. . . Do you want to share a black cab?’
Black cabs were an extravagance that Neve couldn’t afford, not this far away from payday, but that wasn’t the reason why she declined. ‘No, thank you. I’m perfectly all right with catching the tube.’

Do you think I don’t know that you don’t love me? Stop trying to please me and save yourself all the stress of the pretense. I don’t have a love for you too.

I realized something else tonight. Something about pancakes.
What about them?
We both got so obsessed about that first pancake being thrown away that we forgot something really important,’ Max explained. ‘That first pancake tastes just as good as all the other ones. It’s not its fault that it was first in line and the pan wasn’t hot enough so it got a bit lumpy and misshapen.
I felt so brand new with you and felt there were many things we could be and do together. I guess I’ll have to abandon all those feelings and thoughts, because now I know, because you told me, that you don’t love me.
And when you’re really famished that first pancake tastes better than all the ones that come after it,’ Neve said, and then she couldn’t wait any longer. Her arms were around Max before she’d even finished forming the thought, but his arms were around her too in that exact same moment.
Just having him there to hold, warm and solid and real, was enough for five seconds, and then she was peppering his face with kisses – his forehead, his eyebrows, the tip of his crooked nose, along his cheekbones until she reached the glittering prize of his mouth.
Sometimes Neve thought that her appetite was the most robust thing about her, and she didn’t kiss Max so much as she devoured him. Graceless, messy kisses without any thought or reason, but simply because she hungered for him. Kissed him with everything she had and everything she was, and she didn’t know why she could kiss Max and have him kiss her back with the same fierceness but still be greedy for the next kiss and the one after that and the one after that and the one…” – Sarra Manning

This body was also a testament to all the hours in the gym and cycling up hills on her bike and glugging down two liters of water a day and learning to love vegetables and fruits that didn’t come as an optional extra with a pastry crust. She’d earned this body. – This was her body and she had to stop giving it such a hard time. – Sarra Manning

How can anyone expect to be understood unless he presents his thoughts with complete honesty? This situation is unfair because it asks too much of the world. In effect, we say, ‘ I don’t dare show you what I am because I don’t trust you for a minute but please love me anyway because I so need you to.
And, of course, if you don’t love me anyway, you’re a dirty dog, just as I suspected, so I was right in the first place.’ Yet, every time God’s children have thrown away the fear in pursuit of honesty-trying to communicate themselves understood or not, miracles have happened. – Duke Ellington

So you don’t fancy meeting up again?’ Max persisted, though Neve didn’t know why because she thought she’d made her position perfectly clear. ‘Swap war stories?’
‘I don’t have any war stories,’ Neve said, and at that moment she felt that she never would. That every night would be spent creeping around her flat in her socks with the telly turned down so low that she could barely hear it, so in the end, she’d have no other option but to escape into the pages of books where there were other girls falling in and out of love but not her. Never her. She stared down at the scuffed toes of her faux Ugg boots in sudden and tired defeat.
‘If you don’t have any war stories, then at least you don’t have any war wounds,’ Max said, so quietly that Neve had to strain her ears to catch his words. ‘Take my number.” – Sarra Manning

“How is dear Charlotte?’ Celia asked sweetly, then launched into an account of how they’d been having their usual ‘Fucking shut up, ‘No, you fucking shut up’, row a couple of evenings ago, when Yuri had opened the front door of their flat to scream up the stairs, ‘Why don’t both of you fucking shut up? – Sarra Manning
When I saw you on the stairs before, I’d forgotten how beautiful you are,’ he whispered against her skin.
Spotty, not beautiful,’ she corrected gently, running her finger along with his crooked nose. ‘Now you, you’re beautiful.
I even missed your inferiority complex. Max smiled and shifted against her.
‘Not being inferior. It’s a point of fact. I’m covered in zits,’ Neve said and she didn’t know why she felt the need to share that with Max but then she was glad that she had because he was kissing each one of the angry red bumps along her forehead and chin and cheeks, even though a few of them were starting to suppurate. ‘Don’t do that, it’s completely unhygienic. Kiss my mouth instead.” – Sarra Manning
Can we have a time-out on the self-criticism for the rest of the evening?

I’d think about you and how I didn’t want us to end. It’s complicated…
Max still held her, his thumbs stroking the spot on her wrists where her pulse was thundering away. ‘Uncomplicate it then. Did you miss me?’
Of course, I did! I’ve missed you so much, I hurt from it.
Then, and only then, did Max release her but it was only so Neve could wind her arms around his neck because they were kissing. She couldn’t say who leaned in first, but all of a sudden there was the familiar but shocking touch of lips on lips. – Sarra Manning
I’m going that way too. I live in Crouch End. Do you want to share a black cab?
Black cabs were an extravagance that Neve couldn’t afford, not this far away from payday, but that wasn’t the reason why she declined. ‘No,
Thank you. I’m perfectly all right with catching the tube.
We can’t always make ourselves love who we don’t love and maybe it’s just for the best that you don’t love me. I don’t know if I love you anymore. I hope it all ends well.
‘OK, tube it is,’ Max agreed because he was quite obviously emotionally tone-deaf and couldn’t sense the huge ‘kindly bugger off’ vibes that
Neve was sure she was emitting. ‘You’re still mad at me, aren’t you?’
‘You apologized, why would I still be mad at you?’
‘One day we’ll laugh about this. When little Tommy asks how we met, I’ll say, “Well, son, I threw an ice cube at your mother, then slapped her arse, and we’ve been inseparable ever since.” – Sarra Manning
It’s disappointing to know that you don’t love me. You’d have told me before you let me go ahead and pour my love on you after I told you that I love you. I’m not pleased with all.
It’s alright that you don’t love me. Don’t force yourself to. Let’s just let what will happen to happen. But I know we can be good friends still. Am I right?
I sat there listening to him talk and talk and I realized something really important.
I thought I was in love with him for all those years but it turned out I was in love with the idea of William. The actual reality was a bit of an anti-climax.
I thought, well, William would never shove the word WAG into pop songs to make me laugh and he wouldn’t bite the chocolate off chocolate-covered strawberries for me and he’d never, ever watch a film with Sandra Bullock in it, unless it was a Shakespeare adaptation and then he’d spend the entire film listing all the historical inaccuracies and he’d never go down on me for half an hour because he’d lost a game of Scrabble.
Point of fact, I can’t imagine William doing anything that would mess up his hair, and he’s started popping the collars of his shirts, and have I mentioned that he’s not you? He’s not you, Max, and that’s why I’m actually really pleased that he’s engaged and he’s moving to Warwickshire so I don’t have a constant reminder of what an idiot I’ve been.” – Sarra Manning
I won’t need a prophet to tell me if you love me, (insert a name.) It’s obvious that you don’t love me and it’s up to you to decide if you will or won’t.
I can’t force you to love me and I know you don’t love me, so let’s stop pretending like we do and I’ll find something to do with the love I have or once had for you.
You don’t love me, man, and it’s clear for even the blind to see. It’s just ironic that I love you and can’t get over it. But just do you, man. We’ll all be fine, I pray.
You’ve been an amazing friend and person, and I’m glad you came into my life. I really wish we could have something between us, but you don’t love me. I pray you to find someone you love and enjoy him.
You don’t love me and I know that. I also don’t think that will ever change, so I’m moving on to find happiness elsewhere.
When did you stop loving me? Because it’s clear that you don’t love me anymore. Let’s move on and find love elsewhere because I can’t bear love without being loved.
