“You know, in a lot of ways, your mom and me were a stupid idea. I think we both knew it wouldn’t be forver. We’re both too fucking proud. But God, that woman. Your mother is, without question, the love of my life. I’ll never love anyone else like that. It was wildfire. And I got you and June out of it, best things that ever happened to an asshole like me. That kind of love is rare, even if it was a complete disaster.” He sucks his teeth in considering.
“Sometimes you just jump and hope it’s not a cliff.”
This, in my opinion, is one of the best lines I have ever read. Especially by a side character.
Can you guess which book/author/character?
