Do you remember your first kiss? First date? First love?
This story really starts twelve years ago, in a run down apartment complex, in the part of a city that most people would be scared to walk alone in at night.
A little girl tip-toeing down the hallway, makes creaking sounds with every step, "Scruffy? Here, Scruffy," she whispers looking around her. She squinted her eyes, looking carefully all around her in the dark shadowy halls.
Finally she heard a faint 'meow' noise around the corner, she sped up racing into the darkness. Right as she turned the corner a doorway opened, flooding the hallway with light. It stunned her eyes at first, but when she looked she saw a young boy standing there bending down and picking up a gray shabby-coated cat. Her cat.
Sheepishly aproaching the boy she said "That's my cat."
Raising an eye brow at her, the boy replied "Finders, keepers."
Noticing the scared look on her face the boy gave her a smirk to show that his comment was in a joking mannor. When the girl just stood there he realized she hadn't yet caught on to the joke he found so amusing. He held out the cat to her as an offering.
The little girl quickly grabbed the cat from his hands and held it close to her as she turned and all but ran away from him. She left the boy just standing there, still with a smirk on his face as he watched her run.
This was the first time Caiden and Darcy had ever met, and it was just the beginning. When that cat lead Darcy to Caiden's door it was only the start of their lives being interwined together.
