I killed him. I didn't mean to kill him. It was either him or me. So I fought for my life.
Justifiable Homicide. That's what the DA called it.
Olivia: They can call it whatever they want, but in the end, I killed him and I have to live with that for the rest of my life.
Now I'm just trying to get my life back to normal. On my first day back to work as a Fire Fighter Paramedic for the City of West Palm Beach, Florida, I have a hurricane bearing down on me, a new partner to train, and my first patient of the day is the biggest pain in the… well, you know.
I'm fine. That's my new mantra. I'm fine.
Now, if I could just convince everyone else.
He loves someone else. Of course he’s moved on. I knew I shouldn’t have left, but I had no choice.
The proof is standing right there next to him with her arm snaked through his.
Olivia: I had to leave six months ago, and I knew when I came back, things would be different. I even expected that Gabriel would have moved on from me.
What I wasn’t prepared for was how much it was going to hurt.
Seeing him happy is really all I want. Even if it isn’t with me.
But I have things to look forward to as well. I’m in the market for a new home, starting back at my old job with my two best friends, and maybe someday I’ll move on in my love life.
It just won’t be with him.
One of the most important people in my life is clinging to life. Why did this happen?
I’m camped out at yet another hospital bed, and the wedding has been canceled.
Olivia: I’m praying all day everyday for this nightmare to end. I used to bring patients to the hospital, but lately I live here. It’s the smell that’s been getting to me lately. The antiseptic smell.
All day, I just sit here and watch all the monitors beep and IVs drip. It’s exhausting.
At what point does life move on to someone else?
What do I have to do to get my happily ever after?
Matt: I want her in the worst way, but I’m not a man that deserves her. Piper deserves someone that can give her the house, kids, and the white picket fence. She’s everything that is sweet, kind, and beautiful. I’m none of those things.
But I can’t handle who she’s chosen. He’s not right for her.
I need to claim her.
I want to claim her.
I’m going to claim her.
Two years ago, I ran. I couldn’t run far, but I disappeared. I had no choice.
I had to protect myself. He hit me one too many times.
Mallory: My days are filled with working at a tiny neighborhood grocery store and spending time with my sick mother in the nursing home. She’s all I have in this world. He made sure of that. But I’m making it work, alone. It’s always been just me and her against the world. Now, this world feels cold and lonely. But I won’t give up.
I’m keeping to myself so that I don’t attract any unwanted attention. Attention I don’t want or need. He’s out there and he’s probably still pissed.
If he catches up to me, I won’t survive.
Owen: The last two years have been full of loss between losing both of my parents and someone I loved. Murdered. I still can’t seem to get past that word. Murdered.
I want to move on and find what my brothers both have. I want a family of my own. But she still haunts me. I don’t know what it’s going to take.
Until I see her.
Until I see her fear.
Until I see her fearless.
