Every Thursday we are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here.
“One day, the boy had to move away. He couldn’t bring the girl with him, so he brought the stars. When he’d look out his window at night, he would start with one. One Star. And the boy would make a wish on it, and the wish would be her name. At the sound of her name, a second star would appear. And then he’d wish her name again, and the stars would double into four. And four became eight, and eight became sixteen, and so on, in the greatest mathematical equation the universe had ever seen. And by the time an hour had passed, the sky would be filled with so many starts that it would wake the neighbors. People wondered who’d turned on the floodlights. The boy did. By thinking about the girl. “
–Cricket Bell to Lola Nolan
I’m having a Stephanie Perkins love-fest this week. (See my earlier review of My True Love Gave to Me). In this quote, Cricket is telling Lola how, even though he moved away, he always had feelings for her. Yes, the quote is on the long side. But I love how Cricket’s wishes are so powerful that they are bright enough to light up a whole neighborhood. Definitely swoon-worthy astronomy.
