For Tom Hansen, this was the night where everything changed. That wall Summer so often hid behind – the wall of distance, of space, of casual – that wall was slowly coming down. For here was Tom, in her world… a place few had been invited to see with their own eyes. And here was Summer, wanting him there. Him, no one else.
As he listened, Tom began to realize that these stories weren’t routinely told. These were stories one had to earn. He could feel the wall coming down.
He wondered if anyone else had made it this far.
