Erik Destler has lived alone, without family or friends...until now. After over two years of watching from a distance, he finally decides to 'save' his only love- Christine Daae. However, in order to save her he feels he must kidnap her. 17-year-old Christine Daae has basically been alone since her mother died. Her father rarely comes home at night and she doesn't associate with the friends she once had. Lonely and depressed, she treads through life hopelessly. Her loneliness is about to come to an end, though... The problem is, it's against her will. To be kidnapped and to have her freedom stolen isn't what Christine wants. But, can she really hate this masked man who has shown her nothing but kindness? And what will she do when she discovers Erik's true feelings for her? Can she forgive him? Can she love him, as he loves her?
