When Sara and Max see each other after twenty years, old feelings spring to life but with what they are dealing with, could it possibly work for them. Secrets are revealed from the grave that could threaten any future they might have, and it will be up to Sara and Max to see if they can overcome the lies, or bury their dreams of a relationship for good.
It is a story that will make you look back on your first love and wonder. Below is a tiny piece of where my mind is as I start this story….
Everyone has that one; that one that got away, or that we let slip through our fingertips. It might have been your childhood crush, or your first true love in high school or college. Maybe you knew him really well, or you only saw him at a distance and didn’t know much about him at all. Let’s stop for just a second and think, I know you’re thinking about someone right now. As soon as you read the first line of this paragraph, his face or maybe just his name skittered through the back of your thoughts.
Maybe you began to smile, or chuckle at a memory. Or maybe you breathed in slowly and let it out on a sigh because you wondered. You wondered if things had been different, would you, could you possibly have made it work? And if you did, where would your life be now? Who would you be now?
Some people might say it is wrong to wonder what your life could have been like. You should be happy with the hand that life has dealt you and keep moving forward. Personally, I see no harm in wondering. In fact, when we allow our minds to wander, we grow. We become more because we see possibilities that we might not have seen before.
I have known many people over the years who wish they had taken a different road, who wish that the one that got away, had stayed. They believe that the grass really is greener on the other side, and sometimes I wonder. Not about the grass being greener, mine is pretty thick and prosperous here on my side of life, but I still do wonder about that one that got away.
