September Book Photo Challenge - Day 16: OTP
Anna and St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I am charged… That is to say, the Admiral- Admiral Croft has been confidently informed… that Mr. Elliot… That everything is settled now in your family for a union between yourself and Mr. Elliot. It was added that you were to live at Kellynch. And my commission from the Admiral is to say that if the family’s wish is such his lease at Kellynch shall be canceled and he and my sister will provide themselves with another home, that is all. What answer shall I give?
"That day, a few months ago, when I asked you to the theater, what was your reply going to be?"
"Isn’t that obvious?"
"There’s a value to everything, and the more you resist something, the more you make out of it. Everybody has things that they’re quietly resisting doing, and a good day for them is when one of those resistances come and directly confronts them. And I realized that, in [the studio’s] defense, I hadn’t exactly played Mister Johnny Handgun or some guy who was a semi-sexy, charming, billionaire type guy who then you’re going to put in this big machine and believe that he’s going to kick ass and save the world. But I like proving grounds. I like those crucibles that people have to go through. I wouldn’t wish the anxiety of them on an enemy, but I also know that if I’d been spared a single one of them, I wouldn’t be where I am.”
