From: Stargirl

"She liked you, boy."

The intensity of his voice and eyes made me blink.

"Yes," I said.

"She did it for you, you know."


"Gave up herself for a while there. She loved you that much. What an incredibly lucky kid you were."

I could not look at him. "I know."

He shook his head with a wistful sadness. "No, you don't. You can't know yet. Maybe someday..."
