Sometimes going back is the only way to move forward.
In one moment my life fell apart. One single moment and the perfect picture of happily ever after shattered in an instant.
I thought it would destroy me.
It saved me instead.
Sometimes it takes the unexpected, the unimaginable, to shake you awake. It takes something drastic to remind you how to live. For me, losing everything gave me the chance to find everything I’d lost. It gave me the chance to find me.
Second chances don’t come easy.
Emery James was supposed to be my one regret. The one thing I gave up. The one thing I couldn’t get back.
But then she came home.
Broken and lost, she’s a shadow of the girl I loved. But I can still see her and I’m determined to put her back together.
Second chances don’t come easy. But I refuse to let her slip away again. I’m going to fight for her. I’m going to fight for us.
For everything that we lost.
Sometimes the things that RISE from the ashes are strong enough to last forever.
