That's What HE Said Thursday #14: Ethan from Between the Lives

That's what HE said Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Chapter Break where you post a favorite line of a book boyfriend to his heroine. It's the perfect meme to share all those awesome quotes!

Today, of course I had to share a quote from my latest favorite book, Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington.

You said you wanted someone to know you. Maybe I just want to have someone know me too. Without you in this world, the memories of every moment we've shared together will be gone. We only exist because others see us. Part of my existence..." He swallowed, " important part, only exists because you are here to see it.
                           Ethan to Sabine, Between the Lives

I love this quote. Ethan is trying to make Sabine understand how important both of her lives are, how important this life, the one he is in, matters just as much as the other. He's scared that if she chooses the other life, everything that happened between them will cease to exist, that he won't be the person he learned to be because of her.

Oh, and this is the part where Ethan claimed my heart as his as well.
