A long time ago I fell in love.
She left—tore my heart in two.
Now she’s back, and I’ll do anything to keep her.
Women are trouble. I learned that the first time Kandra left.
You know what she told me? That I couldn’t give her the life she wanted—a life of glitz and glamor.
She left to model in the city, hit it big, and I thought I’d never see her again.
I thought wrong.
Now she’s back.
She looks different, but deep down, she’s still the woman I loved—the woman I love.
And this time, I’m going to make her mine.
