"Bienaventurados los malditos porque son los únicos que pueden salvarnos." Blessed are the cursed for they are the only ones who can save us.

Holding my chin with his hand so that I couldn't look away, he turned the full force of his eyes on me. "You cannot hide from me, my love. I will always see you."
