The were never married or had children together. He knew that in this small little town word would travel fast and he would end up looking like the bad guy.

  Bruce decided to open up the message. To his surprise, it was his old high school flame, Mia Davis. Lord, he had not seen or heard from Mia since their big falling over her drug problem. He had to count up the years and to his surprise it had been eleven years since they had spoken.

  Suddenly he was back to that night eleven years ago . The night that ended up being the worst night of his life. the night he received the call that his best friend, Robert had been killed by a drunk driver. It was then he knew that he had to break all contact with Mia, no matter how bad it was going to hurt!
