Prologue

I will tell you a story.

A story about losing, loving and enduring.

Her story—and his.

She had lost everything and had nothing more to lose.

He will lose all that is dear to him.

Together they will travel to the peaks of heaven and the depths of hell. And maybe they will find something in each other—the thing that matters the most. I hope they will—I can never be sure, for I am no God.

You might be wondering: where am I from?

What language do I speak?

What color is my skin?

And I will ask: does it matter?

This is her story. This is his story.

Is this a love story? Hmm, not even God can be sure of that—no? We'll have to decide what kind of story this is at the very end.

Until then
