Mike has made a lifetime of bad choices. He stayed in a relationship that meant nothing and allowed his heart to be trampled because he never believed he deserved any better.
He learned, when he met Jade, just how wrong he had been. She was everything he ever wanted but was afraid to go after. The way she looked at him simply made him happy to be alive.
He fell in love for the first time in his life.
But his demons were right there, scratching and clawing their way back to the surface.
He was on a path of self destruction. He felt it was what he deserved. He never thought he would hurt anyone but himself.
He was so wrong.
Jade tried to help him, but she never saw it coming.
Until it was too late.
Until the unthinkable happened.
