Prologue

Kristina slowly sat down at her desk. With trembling hands, she wrote the letter she thought never would have to be written. A single tear slid down her soft cheek. Signing the letter, she placed a final kiss for her beloved. Silently, with large blue eyes, she folded the piece of stationary and slid it into the white envelope, writing the name Jack in the middle.

Goodbye my love, she thought. I will never stop loving you.

Kristina handed the letter to her best friend, Shannon, to deliver into the unsuspecting hands of the boy she was leaving.
