Five years ago my whole world was consumed by the girl who held my heart, until it all changed.

I walked away to save her from having to deal with me and my fractured heart. 

I've been drowning under the weight of my guilt, pushing away the people I love most... to protect them. 

From all that's left of me and the pain that follows me like a tornado. 

I swore I'd never come back home to Arbor Creek. But here I am. 

They say the truth will set you free, but when it's revealed, I'm forced to face the demons keeping me shackled. 

I don't deserve her or her forgiveness, but I'd give up my life if it meant keeping her safe.

But this time around, she just may be the one saving me.
