Everything comes down to choices.
Ethan’s choices led to his death, which led me to the bridge, a detour on the way to his funeral. I chose to turn around when I heard a car stop. I chose to get into the car with him. I even chose to go on a date with him. I didn’t choose to fall for him, though. And I certainly didn’t choose to be lied to for months.
I chose to leave my hometown, to forget about everything that happened. Then Ethan died, and I chose to come back for the first time in years, knowing what I would face. They still blame me for what happened back then.
If only they knew the truth.
I chose to pull over on that bridge, and when I saw her face and looked into her eyes, I chose to keep the truth from her. Now she has to choose whether or not she can forgive me for my lies.
About Leah Parker
Leah resides on the coast of Massachusetts. She’s been an avid reader since fourth grade when she fell in love with the “Dear America” books, and Harry Potter. When she’s not writing, she’s likely reading. Though she doesn’t much believe in fantasy, she does make an exception for all things Disney. Leah has a degree in Psychology and works with children on the Autism spectrum during the day. She enjoys wine, Italian food, candles, coffee, and being outside. She hates cold weather, long pants, staying in one place for too long, and going to bed (though she does love sleeping.) Leah has always had a passion for writing, but it wasn’t until the Winter of 2015 that she finally got an idea in her head for her first novel, Clemency, which she wrote the following Summer. She released her second novel, Love and Madness in April of 2018. She is currently working on her third.
