Bristel offered to tuck Trevy into bed tonight. Her eyes were shining when she came back downstairs and declared him the cutest kid ever.
She'd told him that sometimes she comes and checks on him while he's sleeping. That she even gives him a kiss on the cheek, but he doesn't ever wake to know it.
He was very confused why she would "look at" him while he was sleeping, so she confided that she worries about him sometimes.
As she was leaving the room he said, "Bristel, you no look me when I sleep tonight."
She asked him, "Why, Buddy?"
"Because I be okay," he reassured her.
And that was when, she says, her heart melted completely.
