'Lyra began inching closer and closer to him on the edge of the bridge, and lay her head down upon his shoulder. Instinctively, Mikah put his arm around her shoulder and drew her in closer. Without thinking the ranger turned and stared into her eyes. 'By Vieé, you're beautiful.' They sat like that, two old lovers staring at the setting sun, brought together by chance, until the sun's last glimmers of light were well below the horizon and all light was from the torches.'
Great quote from a wonderful scene in Nik Rode's wonderful (and long!) book =)

For anybody wishing to read this scene, it's chapter 4, entitled 'Interlocking Rings.'
