Love tests us, but those of us truly deserving of it fight for the right to find it, feel it, and keep it.
Ten years old I fell in love.
Ten years was the price of that love.
Ten years later our world’s re-collide.
My brother, Jonah, was possessive when it came to the things he owned. This unfortunately included the people in his life. The forbidden love between his best friend and me was just that… forbidden. Our families were from different walks of life, and as a sheriff’s daughter, being with a Moore’s kid would never be tolerated. To my parents, their son and Dalton Moore were on different paths, and their friendship would end as soon as college began, but it was my brother who had a craving for trouble. He was always looking for danger, committing petty crimes and getting away with it because Dalton would take the fall, blackening his already stained name. When Jonah found out we broke the rules by loving each other, his actions impacted us all causing immeasurable suffering. Betrayal comes with a debt, and it would be paid by all of us. One with their heart, one with their mind, and one would pay in blood.

There is nothing more natural than falling in love with your soul mate. It’s like an out of body experience. You transcend before crashing back into your body, seeing life through new eyes.
You don’t just find your soul mate; you reunite with them with intensity so powerful nothing can stop it. A love so potent you feel it in the atmosphere, and you see it in their aura.
Dalton Moore was my soul mate and I lived to love him.
He was in my every childhood memory, every dream I conjured.
He was every good decision I made.
But for him…
I was in his every childhood memory, every nightmare he slipped into.
I was the worst decision he ever made.

sign appears after the many miles I traveled to get here.
It’s surreal being back here after ten years. At one point I never dreamed of leaving here, but in an instant life can change. One minute you’re bathing in the warm embrace of the sun, and then without warning, a blizzard comes, distorting and swallowing everything that was once so clear.
