"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor.

Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."
