Witch and Wizard Love

By James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

Love

Three months ago his girlfriend, Celia, had literally vanished without a trace. And by now everyone was thinking she would probably never come back. (2.7)

Well, Whit finally finds out what happened to Celia. But since she's sort of stuck between worlds, he hasn't exactly found closure.

I was crying because I'd just talked to Celia—in a dream, I guess it was a dream, but it felt so real to me. (14.2)

Now that she's a Half-light, is Whit and Celia's relationship still "real"? Or is it a thing of the past?

I loved being able to look into her eyes again. We had the same baby blues. Her friends used to joke about the kids we'd have one day. (24.11)

It sounds like Whit and Celia were close when she was alive. Very close.

"This is why I love you," she whispered. "You're something else, Whit." (48.13)

Notice she says "love"—the present tense. Celia doesn't see her relationship with Whit as a thing of the past.

It didn't matter how awkward and ridiculous it was, trying to huge a ghost. That's the cool thing about love. In my opinion anyway. (53.13)

One way to keep everything G-rated is to make sure the romantic leads can't touch. Literally.

Susan rolled her eyes. "Yes. Mr. Wonderful. Mr. Sensitive. Mr. Washboard Tummy. I think you mentioned Whit once or twice." (55.4)

After seeing how dark and scary the Shadowland is, it's difficult to picture Celia gossiping with her friend. Guess she's making the best of it.

I loved Celia like crazy. To have her ripped out of my life, over and over again, was unbearable. (63.1)

On one level, Whit is really happy to have Celia back. On another, he lives in a constant state of grief. Sigh. Love's never easy.

It was warmth, it was peace, it was pure beauty. I was part of Celia; she was part of me. It was only for a moment, but it seemed as if the feeling were big and powerful enough to last a lifetime. (63.8)

Whit and Celia can't exactly touch—but they can merge. Um, yeah. We're not sure what that means either.

"The love of your life is dead but still haunting you." (93.12)

Margo observes that Celia is "haunting" Whit. Hmm. We hadn't quite thought of it that way until she said it.

Also, poor Whit was seriously pining for Celia, hoping for a dream visit, at least. (101.3)

About forty chapters after her final appearance in the book, Whit's still missing Celia. Poor guy.
