Chapter preview: "It doesn't matter," he whispered softly, squeezing my hand. "Because before we know it, it'll be summer again, and then…" he trailed off.
"Graduation… and then college…" I finished his sentence gently.
He nodded, his expression tightening, "Yeah…"
"Are you applying for anywhere?" I asked curiously, as our pace slowed.
He thought through what he was going to say, and when he did speak his voice was surprisingly soft - "I don't know… how do I know anywhere would even accept me? And I know that if I do go that I'll need someone to help me around, and I don't want to be a burden…"
I cut him off sharply, "You are not a burden," I told him, "You'll never be a burden," I whispered, shocked that he would ever think that. He nodded, but didn't make a comment on what I had said… he didn't actually say anything.
