hen I was 15 years old, I met Edie on the T, I worked two days a week after school in Boston. We went to Forest Hills station where Edie's boyfriend picked her up. I needed to still take a bus from there. But Edie and her boyfriend most often drove me right to my house. I still remember how kind they were to me!
