1. Prologue

I want to hold her hand, and tell her not to worry. I know that she's worried about school starting up.          "I promise that I won't leave you, I cross my heart promise," I say quietly.

"I know Thayer," she says though her eyes are blank."

"School won't be too bad, River. You might be able to make some new friends this year!" I try to sound reassuring.

"No, Thayer, we both know that that won't happen. Please don't lie to me."

"I am not lying...I mean, it could happen if you really want it too..." I take her hand. She almost pulls back but then doesn't.

"Thayer..."

"Yes?"

"Nothing..."

I sit there on her porch holding her hand for what feels like forever. And that was the last I heard from her until school started.
