->We have told how the painter Marcel made the acquaintance of Mademoiselle Musette. United one morning by the ministry of caprice, the registrar of the district, they had fancied, as often happens, that their union did not extend to their hearts; but one evening when, after a violent quarrel, they resolved to leave one another on the spot, they perceived that their hands, which they had joined in a farewell clasp, would no longer quit one another. Almost in spite of themselves fancy had become love.
->... "But what proves that you are in love with one another?" [asked Rodolphe.] "Possibly you exaggerate the danger."
->"We cannot bear one another," said Marcel.
->"And we cannot leave one another," said Musette.

->When I want some kissing,
->And I'm burning up for kissing,
->He says, "No - let me go."
->He's so unusual.

->I know lots of boys who would be crazy over me
->If they only had this fellow's opportunity.
->I would let him pet me,
->But the darn fool, he doesn't let me!
->He's so unusual he drives me wild.


->You might as well be by yourself as in his company.
->When we're both together, I'm still as lonesome as can be.
->But still, I'm mad about him,
->And I can't live without him!
->He's so unusual he drives me wild!

->A part of him thought it was ridiculous question—saying that he missed Asuka was like saying that he missed having a toothache. But another part, the part surprised at the look on her face earlier, the part that had pushed him into that tunnel when the Angel was descending into Central Dogma, knew that he did miss her, very badly.\\
Suddenly, even the silence reminded him she was gone.

->Sighing contently, he dried off and changed into a t-shirt and shorts before brushing his teeth, switching off the light and walking down the dark corridor to his 'lovely suite'…then stopping as his gaze fell on the open door to the empty room, just down from his own.\\
God he missed Asuka.\\
It was almost funny in a way. How many times he had begged someone –anyone- to get her out of this house.
