when the main character of a tween supernatural romance says shit like, “Girls need to be swept off their feet, and asking permission is just…just…old-fashioned. It’s not spontaneous enough. It doesn’t scream passion. It screams old fogy. If you have to ask, then the answer is…no.”
This is in response to a young woman being asked by a man she’s basically known all of two weeks if he could kiss her.
