If I’d known right then that this was the kid who would grow up to break my heart beyond repair, maybe I would’ve stayed upstairs on the phone with Tess.
Maybe I would’ve gone to bed early. Maybe I would’ve begged my parents to take me with them – even though those doctor dinners are pretty much the boringest things ever.
But I didn’t know. Couldn’t know. So instead I shrugged and said something really genius like “Um, whatever.” And proceeded to fall totally, madly, crazy in love.
