If I could be schmaltzy for a moment ....
I believe the best loves are those born out of friendship:
I believe love that is true lasts forever:
I believe to be loved is to live forever in someone's heart:
I believe you never forget your first love:
I believe a heart that loves is always young:
I believe love conquers all things:
I believe some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same:
I believe loving others makes us better people:
I believe children understand the purity of love:
I believe the people that truly love us are those that not only know our true selves, but stick around anyway:
I believe love is not what makes the world go 'round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile:
Oh, shit. Wait.
Who is that kid? And more importantly, how is Kendrie's long-time boyfriend Nicholas going to feel about this???
I believe Kendrie might have found a new main squeeze. I believe he might even like her back, considering he is holding her foot:
And the truest, most positive proof of reciprocal emotion, the "hitting her on the forehead while you bounce on your toes" love signal:
In all seriousness, while my heart still hurts with missing Nicholas on her behalf, I'm relieved to see her making new friends at her school. Kellen, well, he's a boy and pretty much fit in at his new school quickly. Brayden is a little social butterfly and honestly, has blossomed here.
Kendrie? Not so much. It was MONTHS after the move and we were still having tears at night over missing her Georgia friends, specifically "the boyfriend" Nicholas. He is a dear, sweet boy, and since we met his family in the Pre-Kindergarten registration line, back in 2004, and discovered they lived only a few blocks away, the two of them have been inseparable. They were in the same Pre-K class, the same kindergarten class, the same first grade class, and the same second grade class. They played t-ball together, soccer together, and his was the first house where she ever worked up the courage for a sleepover.
Do I think the new boy (Matt is his name, by the way) will replace Nicholas? Not in a million years. Do I think it's wonderful that she is letting go of her past juuuuuuuust enough, and beginning to invest in friendships here? Why yes, I do.
Although Blaine says that kid better get his hand away from her ass or he's going to his house with a shotgun.
