"I can't tell if you're being obtuse or trying to let me down easy," Laurie said, "you're so hard to read sometimes, Ames, I think you have to be doing it on purpose. But then you look at me like that - " he reached out again, and Amy's breath caught in her throat, freezing in place as he touched her face again, in the same spot as before - "and I know you don't know what the fuck I'm talking about. Because you spend so much time talking yourself down from things, denying yourself things, that you start to believe that you never had them in the first place. Is that what you're doing with me?"

Their plan to live separate lives lasted four days.

Everything feels easier with MJ these days. When he’s looking at her, he can be thinking just about her, not any of the other stresses that wait around every corner. She’s all-consuming, endlessly attention-grabbing. Her hair and her smile and the way she leans over her notebooks, scribbles away something he’s sure is completely unrelated to class, that he gets to guess about before she shows him over lunch.
He can focus entirely on hypothesizing about her thought process, brainstorming ways he can make her laugh when they walk out of class together, even though she’ll inevitably be funnier than him in a single sentence or with a single look.
or, 5 times Peter stares at MJ and 1 time he doesn't look away

“No,” she says between gasps of air, kicking him with her socked feet. But he pulls back to look at her and watches as her cheeks flush as she tries to level out her breathing and her eyes find him. “I’m just saying… we’re probably soul mates.”
His face splits in half with his smile and he darts forwards to kiss her quickly. “I hope so; I’ve never been in love like I am with you.”
The door clicks open and, “I don’t think you wanna be soul mates.”
Ugh. Peter drops his forehead onto Gwen’s shoulder as her roommate walks in. She’s not rude per se, and she seems to never want to be around him and Gwen but there’s something about her that gets under his skin.
“And why’s that Michelle?” he asks, moving to a sitting position on the couch as opposed to lying over his girlfriend.

Was it selfish? Oh, definitely.
Would he do it again?
If he’s being honest, Peter would prefer not to find out. He likes to think this is it for them. At least, she’s it for him. She always has been because he can’t imagine being here with anyone else—not even a nameless, faceless person who, honestly, could offer him nothing that would measure up to being here with Michelle.
It’s not that he has standards or guidelines for who he does and doesn’t fall in love with. It’s just that he’s always had tunnel vision going one way, and it’s always ended with her. No exceptions.
“I always thought the whole ‘do you have any objections?’ question was rhetoric until now.”
OR, peter has a few objections to michelle’s wedding
