There are some characters who are more than just characters in a book which becomes more than just a book once you read them. You laugh with them, you cry with them, you run with them, you explore the universe with them, you live with them, you love with them and then you die with them.
Then there’s no going back.
Some words make you feel lovely. some lines become you. Some paragraphs shatter you. shatter you in so many pieces that you can’t believe you actually read them. You go back, read them again, again and again. But, yet, you think the writer made a mistake or you got a manipulated copy of the book. But, no. They shatter you to the core.
Some books are more than just books and some characters are more than just fictional human beings.
