THICK & THIN
What can I say about him?
He was my best friend until he wasn’t.
He was my childhood until I was no longer a child.
Now he’s something else entirely.
A man instead of a boy—a soldier instead of a high school quarterback.
He’s forbidden thoughts and secret desires.
Our situation has changed and so have I.
I’m no longer the love-sick tomboy he left behind. I’m a woman with needs, a secret, and an extra fifty pounds.
We promised through thick and thin, but I’m not sure how thin the lines are or how thick he’s willing to go.
