Thomas holds the necklace in his hand for far too long, imagining to himself that it bears the warmth of a summer sun, and the smile of a familiar friend.
He wears it beneath his shirt at first, keeping it safe and secret.
By the time the week is finished, he's wearing it properly--outside and everywhere. He smiles a little bit more as each day passes. It's from the amethyst, surely, and from the kind compassion of his friend.
