"To love is to destroy" - Cassandra Clare Astoria has read it in her books so many times but not once did she think it was true. Not once did she think it would apply to her life. But it's true. Love is scary. Love hurts in the most unimaginable way. And love, love completely obliterates your wake and rips you to shreds. It tears you and abolishes your thinking. It can break your heart, only to make you whole once more. Love is more powerful than anything else in the world.
