One night changed an entire town.
One girl changed my entire life.
After she left without saying goodbye, I never expected to see her again.
The fire that changed Hawk Valley was my first night on the job. She was my first save as a firefighter. But she wasn’t the first to walk out of my life without looking back.
She was just another number on that list.
I grew used to putting out sparks in my personal life, too. But when she came back, I couldn’t stop myself from chasing after her. Just a fling, we said. But where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
Of all people, I should have known that. It could never be casual with us. It was always going to become an inferno.
Until someone else put out the fire.
