The most prestigious school around, with the biggest price tag to go with it.
It was a dream. Until it became a nightmare.
One moment. One person.
That's all it took to bring my entire world crashing down around my ears.
A world I'm not sure I'll be able to put back together.
Anger bubbles beneath the surface.
A constant simmering rage that can never be sated.
It's been like this for a long time. As long as I can remember.
And now she's here. Under my feet and under my nose.
Poking the bear and kissing the damage.
But I don't know how to reconcile the hatred with what it's becoming.
The past is out to get us.
A ticking clock that neither of us can outrun.
Will we burn when the world crashes around us? Or will we rise like the Phoenix?
