An unexpected schedule change during my senior year left a void to fill, and my counselor suggested that I spend it as one of her aides. Jared was asked to show me the routine that first day; from then on we did everything together.
We were walking slowly through the hall one afternoon when a door behind me slammed open, just missing me, and hit the wall with a loud crack. He spun around. “Are you okay?” An angry kid walked through that open door, and Jared charged over to him. He towered over the sophomore as he began a blistering verbal attack.
My initial shock melted into a warm pride as I watched my tall, blonde crush defend me.
