Years later, Felixís ex-girlfriend is his girlfriend again. And they live on the beautiful northern California coast. Itís not the Beach Boysí California, the one he dreamed of during his traumatic childhood, but itís still California. And even this late in the year, itís still sunny.
She is still the only girl heís ever loved. He told her that once. She thought he was joking, but he persuaded her that he meant it, and he did. Sometimes he can hardly believe that this scared little boy has grown so much and come so far.†
