Subject: Jesse

Hi! I can’t believe it. What a surprise from Jesse. When he got my email about being accepted by the Washington School of Classical Dance’s summer program, he called to congratulate me! I loved hearing his voice. We’ve been friends forever - could it turn into something more?

I couldn’t believe the news. Melinda is so young! How could she be sick? How did she get leukemia? She’s got to get better. She’s got to.
