IRJE : “All This Time”

The book I’m reading is called “All This Time” by Mikki Daughtry and Rachael Lippincott.

“Her voice is barely more than a whisper as she finishes the story. “And she knew that she was loved.”

Our eyes lock, and I know this isn’t friendship. All my excuses fall away. I don’t think about if it’s wrong or right or anything. I love her. I love her like the man in the moon loved that girl.”

This quote is important in the story because Kyle is finally accepting his feeling for Marley and doesn’t want to hide them anymore. He wants to try how things work with Marley and wants to give his 100%. They both had been going out and everything feels right for a moment until Kyles mind plays with him and he starts thinking that this isn’t the right thing to do and that he belongs to Kimberly although she’s not there anymore. Kyle is realizing many things and emotions when he’s with Marley. Marley is also going through a loss and she also thinks it’s her fault, same as Kyle.  Kyle sees in Marley all the unspoken things he is feeling. As the story is going on, Kyle tries to open more by telling Marley how he feels, sometimes its hard but he tries his best, he makes this because Kimberly never expressed how she felt and Kyle didn’t like that so he doesn’t want this to happen in his relationship with Marley.
