Summer Adeline is a cool girl who I never met until she made me a necklace with a locket for Max’s hair.
I only knew her from her website and some blog comments but I had a feeling that she was The One.
She came to my house from across town and presented me with the locket, beaming with pleasure at my excitement. She didn’t want any money. She let me cry when I told her about Max, and listened patiently to the long harrowing story. She even put the hair inside the locket for me. A lock of hair that I cut myself while a red-faced bastard from the coroner’s office yelled at me in Max’s bedroom.
Summer is an angel, and she is appropriately beautiful for the role. She’s a girl who Max would have fallen for, without a doubt.
I don’t believe that “Things happen for a reason,” but sometimes good things happen just when you need a helping hand or a ray of light or an antidote to all the stupidity and indifference you encounter every day.
Cyberspace has brought me a plague of malevolent cretins but it has also brought me Summer. Love trumps hatred. How could we exist otherwise?
Thanks, Summer! xoxo
