Some of the days of Alek and Tomas stay at the home of the Camelirs family were they stay and protect the twins that both of them felt in love with them later on in the story.
Now that Toma’s realize that he loves Lisa he would do anything to protect her and save her from Vlad the original Vampire who was trying to steal his love by sudcing her to love him. but Toma’s would do anything to get her back no matter what situation he is in
On the day that both of the war hero had to protect the sisters they forget about the duty and started falling in love with the twins in the instinct when they saw them. to the put that Aleks the soldier fought another man for the sister because the man bit Natasha lips.
Were would Toma love be at when he need her the most because he never told her that he love her till she was at the edge of falling in love for someone else and changing. Lisa is the first woman that Toma’s ever loved and wanted to feel the way his comrade feel about a woman Alek
Day that Lisa was capture by Vlad the vampire who kills for the fun of it. took lisa as his wife and when he needed to get her back was Tomas goal to get her back so he can tell her that he loves her.
All is lost in the eyes of Toma’s when the love of his life is gone be the devil’s power never to be seen again and tell her how he really feels about her. now he gotta chose what he wants and what more important.
You could never know what you want in life onto that things is gone from your eyes and never again seen for you to confront it and tell it your real feelings of it.

I finished reading Now by Morris Gleitzman, and now I'm moving on to The Only Thing to Fear by Caroline Tung Richmond. The book is 280 pages in total. "Now" was 184 pages.

S - Sad because at the end of the book, Felix and Zelda's house burned down along with their neighborhood and nearby town. Felix had been collecting all 36 books written by Richmal Crompton, a beloved author who he looked up to throughout the war. This collection was completed at the beginning of the book when Zelda bout the final book he was looking for, but the collection was destroyed when their house burned down. Also, Felix, 70 years later, gets to hold a funeral for the original Zelda, who was killed in the previous book by the Nazis. He placed her cherished locket in the casket that they buried.
N - Now is the title of the book.
O - Once was the title of the first book in the series.
W - When Jesse was actually in a life threatening condition, and Felix was the only person they could go to, Tyra realized that she didn't mean to be so mean to Zelda, and she apologized.
D - Death nearly occurred in the book, because Jesse almost died from his asthma, and his parents were nearly killed by the blazing fire that destroyed their neighborhood.
A - Asthma, which is what Jesse had struggled with throughout the book. He was bullied for always wheezing, and when the fire rolled through, the smoke inhalation nearly killed him. He would've died if it weren't for Felix's heroics.
Y - You seriously need to read this book series. It's one of the best series' I have ever read.

My book that I'm reading is called The Demonologist By Andrew Pyper page 153

Some things that i think of doing is going to watch star wars the force awakens
Never to late to chase after your goals or finish it no mater what the situation is
Outside is a beautiful with lots of snow everywhere almost time for christmasy
Work is the easiest way of making money fast and legal
Do what you can -then what you wish you can will come later
All day will be busy for me at work today since the premier of star wars
You don't know what you've lost till its gone. cherish what you have before its gone
