That's What HE Said Thursday #36: Sebastian from The Thorn and the Sinking Stone

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 girl. It's the perfect meme to share all those awesome quotes!

                     Today's quote is from Sebastian of The Thorn and the Sinking Stone by CJ Dushinski.

At first I though it was just the shock of seeing someone you knew as a child now as an adult, and then realizing they were probably the most beautiful girl you'd ever seen. That alone was enough to strike any hormone-filled teenage boy with heart-racing, palm-sweating, stuttering thoughts. But sitting alone on the rooftop, I'd realized it had been more than that--much more. It was as if I'd finally been reunited with someone I'd longed for every day for nine years, thinking I would never see them again. And then, as if painted by the hand of God, there she was...
-Sebastian to Valencia

I know this quote is not exactly one that Sebastian says to Valencia, but I love it because these are his thoughts about her, about seeing her again after a very long time. Although The Thorn and the Sinking Stone wasn't the strong book I was hoping for (check my review here), when it comes to the romance department and of shipping couples, this one is certainly one to look out for. Sebastian is the perfect book boyfriend and he made my heart stutter so many times. Especially in this quote. <3
