Allison helped change Lydia into a better person. They bonded through some pretty serious shit and once you’ve been through tragedy with someone there’s an understanding there. You don’t think they were that close but at 16/17 your best friend is a huge part of who you are for most people and that’s not even taking what they’ve been through into consideration.
If my best friend died I would be crippled by grief, especially if she was ripped from the world in such a cruel way.
Allison was Lydia’s first real friend.
The grief we write for her is justified.
Lydia, look at me. Don’t listen, okay, don’t listen to it. Just focus on my voice.
