slam dunk me into the nearest trash can

"There was nothing awkward or tentative about Jericho’s kiss. He pressed his mouth against hers with a ferocious insistence. Every part of her felt awake and alive.

Evie pushed him away. “I can’t.”

“Why not?” His expression hardened. “Is it because of what I am?”

She shook her head. “It’s because of Mabel.”

He was looking into her eyes. “Well, I don’t want Mabel. I want you. Tell me you don’t want me to kiss you, and I won’t.”

Evie said nothing. Jericho pulled her close and kissed her again. Evie kissed him back, happy for the feel of his lips on hers. Happy for his hands knotted in her hair, happy for his shirt gripped in hers. That was how the world worked, wasn’t it? You set your sights on something, and life came along with a sucker punch. Mabel wanted Jericho, Jericho wanted Evie."

Libba Bray, The Diviners

In which Evie O’Neill is a great friend and Jericho Jones keeps it real: you can’t help to whom you’re attracted, regardless of who is attracted to you, and no one “deserves” you any more or less than anyone else. No one is obligated to love or be with anyone else.
