couple weeks later....
linda havent been coming to school for awhile, wonder what she's up to..
We just got the news from linda's parents. Linda has passed away due to a brain tumor. Im so sorry timmy.
"Linda was nine then, as i was, but we were in love..it had all the shadings and complexities of mature adult love and maybe more, because there were not yet words for it. I just loved her. Even then, at nine years old, i wanted to live inside her body. i wanted to melt into her bones--that kind of love."
