And the things that he talked about in it were so powerful to them, stories that he spoke about of myself and him that I didn’t even remember, really, until… They literally had to replay it.
Good girl loved bad boy. The way they jogged past me and caught my vision, our eyes … and I was just like, ‘My hero.’ I’m trying to find the words to explain what I’m trying to say. But it just felt right in a crazy moment. It felt right.”
