Prologue
I'd Call It Fate

Some might call it unlucky that I would first lay my eyes on her when the side of my face was being pressed into the trimmed, lush green grass of my teacher's lawn, with the cold air biting at my bare feet and hands. That she and her friends would be walking by the exact same house on Halloween night while four or five- I'd lost count- blue uniformed cops jumped out of their squad cars. That I might see her dirty blond curls- which were pulled back in a messy ponytail- when my friend Jason and I's scared faces were being illuminated by the flashing blue and red lights of the cars that were pulled onto the curb. That our eyes would meet for the first time while my thick, black hair was being tugged back roughly by the hands of the uniformed cop that was sitting on my back and handcuffing me.

Some people would call that unlucky.

I'd call it fate.
