About When You Were Mine
High school sweethearts. One night of heartbreak.
Michael and I used to be inseparable, but a devastating moment during a summer party after high school graduation brought our relationship to a painful stop. I avoided spending winter break from my freshman year in college back in my small town, but summer is closing in, looming like a dark cloud on the horizon. Returning home means facing Michael and the ruins of our relationship, but my fearful heart still aches over the future I always assumed we would share.
When my younger sister reveals that Michael is rumored to be engaged, I realize that I’m not ready to give him up. He’s moved on, with a beautiful fiancée who seems to make him happy, but can I stand by and ignore the love I still hold in my heart for him?
