In a matter of seconds, my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.
In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I'd find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.
I didn't expect him to write back. I wasn't prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn't ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I'd never known before.
Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn't: He put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.
But now that I'm whole, I have a decision to make: Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?
