Okay, you know what? I’m not here to solve all your problems, Garrity. I’m not. I’m here to support you no matter what choice you make, that’s why I’m here. I’m your boyfriend, and I think I’m a pretty darn good one. You know what? Your dad threw you a good curve ball. But this self-pity that I’ve been seeing, it’s gotta stop. You’re better than that. And you can still get into any college you want. Any one you want, still. … If you can’t afford it, there’s scholarships to be had, I mean, your grades speak for themselves. And you know what? If it doesn’t, there’s San Antonio State, and I would love to have you. Did I just say I loved you? Did I? No? ‘Cause I’m kinda madly in love with you, and I’ll be here no matter what.
I want to be scared. I want to keep taking insane risks. I want to be scared because you’re going to grow through that whether you want to or not. I don’t want to play the same guy. I want to keep throwing curveballs to you guys and keep telling stories.
