And I Love You, Too
It's not often you start a beginning, with an ending.
Before Regan met Asher, life was as simple as it can get. With no parents to give her curfews or rules to follow, she is free to do as she pleases. With a pretty face to go along with her bright personality, Regan has friends all over the small island. Especially J.J. They grew up together, and were inseparable. Lying out on the beach, surfing, causing a little trouble down town, or just laying on her roof watching the stars and listening to the waves. What could get better? Until she meets a tourist. A tourist who would change her life forever.
Life after meeting Asher:
What could be worse? No longer allowed to look, talk, or even be near her friends. No longer allowed to swim, or even be near water. Despite all that, every day Regan found herself waking up and needing, not necessarily wanting, the boy that took over her summer. Asher knew everything about Regan. The good, the bad, the ugly. Regan knew nothing about Asher. But like everything else, oddly enough, that was okay.
Asher leaves unexpectantly, although promising to return next summer. Regan makes a promise of her own: Don't fall in love with anybody else.
The depression wasn't normal. Every day was like turning to a blank page in a book. There was no story to fill up the pages, nothing new happened. Regan was breathing, but dead at the same time. No matter how hard she tried, something inside of her would not allow her to forget Asher. Although her friends slowly forgave her, and J.J became her brother again, it wasn't the same. They could barely get two words out of her, and maybe a smile. Until...
Another tourist comes at the start of the summer. He's beautiful. But he was also a shock to look at. Brody's face structure was identical to Asher's. From the way his eyes were rounded, or his lips were shaped. The physical appearance was completely opposite, however. Having the same face structure wasn't the only thing they had in common.
