I love him so much I'm actually hurting for him right now. I'm angry on his behalf. I'm gutted on his behalf, and I want to make this better for him.
As Dale lets go of my leg and steers his car into the Barrington High parking lot, my mother's words run through my head once again.

Dale wants to get into a good school. Better yet, he wants the school he picked out with his dad. There's no other option. Dale has to go to Columbia. And damn it, I am going to make that happen for him.
