Rating: 3.5/5

Tevin Campbell shakes his head after he says goodbye to a woman he met. They talked about the teacher and classes they shared. However, he didn’t get a chance to really get to know her. It seemed as though she wanted to talk more but he wasn’t sure. She did sit next to him all day. He didn’t want to be too forward and assume she liked him.

The next day, though, the young woman sees him in the halls and says she had fun last weekend. She adds that she wished they had more of a chance to hang out. He suggests the following Saturday to hang out with her and she agrees. In some of their classes, she sits next to him and talks to him before class starts.

She’s a really good person. He learned she wants to work for the American Cancer Society one day. She does some volunteering in the hospital over the weekends. Since her mother passed away two years ago, she realized she wanted to help people and get involved. She has a dog and wants to travel to Europe someday.

By the end of the year, she had become close with all of his friends. They had gone to concerts together and came over for dinner at his house at least once a month. Her dad told him he was glad she had someone like him in his life. He treated her well. She had a rough time after her mom’s death and become a loner. She’s the first person she’s opened up to for a long time.
