But I want to forget all those things for a minute.  Okay?
- "Okay."
I want to make sure that the first person you kiss loves you.  Okay?
- "Okay."
She was crying harder now.  And I was, too
because when I hear something like that I just can't help it.

I just want to make sure of that.  Okay?
- "Okay."
And she kissed me.
 It was the kind of kiss that I could never tell
my friends about out loud.
 It was the kind of kiss that made me know that
I was never so happy in my whole life . . .

i just finished the book .I have this urge to take it anywhere i go ,
so i can be near it (them) .

if you wonder about the song : the smiths - ♫ "asleep "

"I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be

I hope this new season
brings you the cold air
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing will ever remind you of me..."

-carissas wierd .

you know me . like every year . here it is .

Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .
