    Summary

    "I always pictured people like a candle's light: only living to outshine others.

    But Marco wasn't like that. He lived for others; he burned for others. And that's why he burned the brightest, out of all the others. He burned the boldest, and bravest.

    Until his flame died out."

    Jeanmarco week, day 4: Candlelight.
