Day 55: A passage from a book that has touched you.
“Then she sat as if paralysed, thinking. She had never in her life felt such a longing. She wanted Mikeal Blomkvist to ring the doorbell and… what then? Lift her off the ground, hold her in his arms? Passionately take her into the bedroom and tear off her clothes? No, she really just wanted his company. She wanted to hear him say that he liked her for who she was. That she was someone special in his world and in his life. She wanted him to give her some gesture of love, not just of friendship and companionship. I’m flipping out, she thought.”
– Steig Larsoon, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
This makes me sad for Lisbeth because I can relate to her feelings. I want someone who’ll make me feel like I am special in their life. It’s just so relateable on so many levels.
