Jbakesmcgee3 Here is the excerpt he highlighted: ‘We are going to be the best of friends,‘ said Gilbert, ju- bilantly. ‘We were born to be good friends, Anne. You‘ve thwarted destiny enough. I know we can help each other in many ways. You are going to keep up your studies, aren‘t you? So am I. Come, I‘m going to walk home with you.‘ 4mo
