I saw Eleanor today.
I haven’t seen her in eight years.
I didn’t think I’d ever see her again… not since the night we were supposed to leave together and I never showed up.
She looked almost as shocked as I was.
God, for the first time in eight years I feel like I can breathe. I feel blood pumping through my veins. I feel alive. I’ve never stopped loving Eleanor Benson and I never will.
How do I explain Della to her? How do I explain any of this to her?
I want her back, but can I risk her getting involved in my life again… the life I have no control over?
