Blurb

Jenevieve Barlow is a young woman with a tragic past, always seeming to lose the things she loves. After the death of her best friend, Jenny finds herself lost and barely living. Then she meets Kale and suddenly her life is filled with color once more. However, Kale doesn't come without his fair share of baggage, the biggest being the son of a Business Tycoon, though he doesn't wish to inherit the burden. They fall in love, but there are many forces at work pushing them together and pulling them apart, which leads them on a long journey that tests just how far they are willing to go to be together. They will be forced to ask themselves, once you are bound in friendship, love, responsibility and even death, can you ever really be free and do you even want to be?

Prologue


Gone were the days, so gentle and grand,

I was constantly beaten, face down in the sand.

I was broken, bleeding, with no courage to stand,

Like an angel, you were there, you took my hand.

Plagued with feelings, I didn’t understand then,

You offered acceptance, not judgment, you helped me to mend.

You stayed by my side, on you I could always depend,

You know I adored you, my one true friend.

I was in need of answers, to be no longer confined,

It was you, who was searching, for something I couldn’t find.

I knew what you wanted, but it wasn’t in the design,

It wasn’t to you, for that I’m sorry, to whom I was so inclined.

The riddle was solved, but as a result of my being defined,

I caused you pain, hurt you, and then left you behind.

Even still, like a thorn, I stay in your heart,

I wish I could hold you, console you, and go back to the start.

I want to start anew, rearrange my feelings, make them restart,

I wonder, would those feelings reach you, when we’re both worlds apart?

As I enter the void, where no light is found,

Even in darkness and fear, I whisper a sound.

In the silence, my voice, in a gentle breeze will surround, quietly saying,

To You, I am Forever Bound.
