14: I used to see you walking around school, I knew who you were but the words we shared were little. I love high school because it was a place to go and share stories, make stories and do the things that eventually would occupy space in my most treasured memories.

If I had known then that his plan all along was to bring you to me in the later years, I would have begged him to please not wait so long.
