third wheeling two girls who are best friends is so much worse than third wheeling a couple
People get hurt and close their minds, but as time passes, they gradually open up, and they grow as they repeat that. This novel is about growth.
Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are.
