As for Celine, she liked to stay invisible whether it was at school, at home, or anywhere else.

Why did daddy leave..? And when she finally has enough, will she be able to open up to Mason and tell him her story? But be careful Celine, when secrets are revealed . . . Someone always has to pay the price . . .
