A Quote by David Guterson on childhood love, glass box, sea, childhood, love, devotion, and anxiety

He decided then that he would love her forever no matter what came to pass.  It was not so much a matter of deciding as accepting the inevitability of it. It made him feel better, though he felt perturbed, too, worried that this kiss was wrong.  But from his point of view, at fourteen years old, their love was entirely unavoidable.  It had started on the day they’d clung to his glass box and kissed in the sea, and now it must go on forever.  He felt certain of this.
