Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.
For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.
Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.
Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.
Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it's with another.
But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.
Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?
As she approached the creek, she could hear the familiar babble of the shallow water over the rocks. It was such a soothing, quiet sound, but in the still of the morning, it rang out so clearly. She walked to the bank of Coon’s Cove and stared into the depths of the dark water. The morning light was reflecting in the ripples, and the reflection of the willow tree left distorted shapes of the branches on the water. Her life used to be the willow tree: Strong and resilient, reaching for the limitless sky. And now her life was the branch on the water. Jagged and broken by the ripples of an uprooted life and a love plucked before it could fully bloom. She was just a reflection now of what used to be, and a reflection isn’t anything real. She stared into the pool for how long, she didn’t know. She would’ve kept her gaze there if it hadn’t been for the feeling of a hand on her shoulder. Will. He was here, he was right behind her, but she couldn’t turn around. She fought against every force in her body telling her to turn to him. She couldn’t bear the thought of turning to see him, to look at him, knowing that she was turning to tell him goodbye. If she could just stand perfectly still, he could stay behind her forever, and she wouldn’t have to tell him. She could be happy to just have him right behind her, touching her shoulder, never leaving her. I can’t William. I won’t turn to see you for the last time.
