IN JOHN'S WORDS: "I screwed up royally, time and again, and somehow we have still managed to make it this far, and you have found room in your heart to love me. And I loved you before we even got your books picked up off the ground after you tripped over those tree roots, on day one. I’d never known anything like the pull I felt to you, and I still feel it. All these years later, it’s stronger than ever."

NAME: John F. Kennedy Jr.
ROLE: Abby's First Love
HE MET ABBY... In the spring of 1980 on the campus of Brown University.
(I've Loved These Days, Book 1 in The Abigail Phelps Series, Chapter 6 - "This Is The Time")
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: "As we stood there talking and laughing, I wasn’t thinking about who he was, who his family was, or what his legacy was. I wasn’t even thinking about how handsome he was, although it was certainly something I realized. Photos didn’t do him justice. Actually, what I was thinking was, 'I’m going to marry this man someday.'"
