I must admit, when I first started Everneath, I was a little iffy about Jack--I mean the guy was super nice and all, but I wasn't really feeling the chemistry between him and Nikki.... but then, as I got closer to the end, the more I started liking him. He's such a sweetheart!

"You haven't moved on?"
He chuckled. "I have a lifetime of memories made up of chestnut wars and poker games and midnight excursions and Christmas Dances...It's all you. It's only ever been you. I love you." The last part seemed to escape his lips unintentionally, and afterward he closed his eyes and put his head in his hands, as if he had a suddent headache. "I've gotta not say that out loud."
