Prologue

It has been eight years since we last saw each other. We've been in touch for two years but after that he just stopped. I was sad at first. I started to think that maybe he finally found a new friend and decided to stop. Time was passing and my I thought about him then I realized that maybe he was just too busy about his new life that he temporarily forgot me. But never have I ever received any contact from him after the two years he'd been gone. So I decided to not wait on him and went on with my life.


Things have changed a lot since then. I met new people, I got through high school and college. Now I've been spending my days working at a local bakeshop where my co-workers are like family.


I've been happy with everything. But Jake's memory was still lingering on my mind.


He was right about one thing. Having his name hanging around my neck does help in remembering him. Although the necklace isn't the one thing that's reminded me of him. It was my memories with him. It stayed with me and burned at the back of my mind. His promise is also the reason why I never wanted to forget him.


My mom once told me that promises are the most precious thing a person can keep. That's why I kept Jake's word. Though I'm just not sure if he'd meant to keep his promise because one thing I realized as I grew up...


Promises can also be broken.


I clutch the tag plate in my fingers as I lay in bed.


I'm just hoping Jake wouldn't break that promise.


I closed my eyes and drifted to sleep as I held on tight to the dog tag that bear his name and memory.

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

sunshinebennybear: First, I would like to address the elephant in the room. The author forgets her own character's names. She mixed up Liam for Jace, Harri for Maiya, and Freya for Clary. I love The Mortal Instruments as much as the next fangirl, but I find myself unforgiving about this. Throughout the story there ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
