Saying goodbye for now wasn’t supposed to be saying goodbye forever.
He moved to America and made a promise to write letters until he could find his way back. But promises are only as strong as the person who created them.
Party’s are where drunk teenagers do dumb things, and boy did I do a foolish something. Maybe if he didn’t say he was too busy to talk, I might not have done what I did.

When he finds out, his heart will be crushed.
They say rewinding time is impossible, but “do-overs” are like second chances with a clean slate…Not for me, there isn’t. All is not forgiven and forgotten.
I’m an Australian travel agent who ironically has never been on an airplane. From the moment I step onto American soil, Nick makes it his mission to repel me. He’s absolutely furious, and it’s been seventeen years since we last saw each other.
