JULIAN

 

I’d been waiting for her all my life. I just didn’t know it.

 

Her love breathed life into my tired bones, filling the emptiest parts of me and bringing vivid color to my black and white world. I couldn’t promise her forever. I could only promise to take care of her all of her days and hope that someday she could connect all the dots…

 

EVIE

 

I never knew what true love was until I met him.

 

When we were together, the rest of the world had a way of disappearing for a while. It was never my intention to fall in love with him, but loving him was the only thing that made sense in a world where nothing else did.

 

But certain people would do anything to keep us apart, and there were a
million
reasons why…

“Things are sweeter when they're lost. I know—because once I wanted something and got it. It was the only thing I ever wanted badly … and when I got it it turned to dust in my hand.”
