Linda and O’Brien were classmates in the fourth grade. They went on a date together, accompanied by O’Brien’s parents, for which Linda wore a new red cap. They saw a rather violent movie (Linda did not seem to mind the deaths) and then they went for ice cream. O’Brien knew that he loved Linda, and he says she loved him back with a rich, mature love.
