Details

Story: He had a leather-bound journal that he occasionally felt the desire to write in. But the funny thing was, he always left out in the open for anyone to steal a glance. That didn’t bother him, in fact nothing much bothered him. People were drawn to him, his opinion, even just his voice. I think he liked having something so private, so unveiling out in the open for anyone that was brave enough. Vulnerability was not something you’d expect from him, then again, the unexpected was the only thing you could count on with Tommy.
