“Listen, Piper. You’ve been through a lot. More than any eighteen year old should have to. I know what it feels like to be in your situation. Remember, we were matched for a reason? We can’t go back and change the past, but we can make a difference with the future for others.”

Her words are like a soft blanket draped around my shoulders and I look up at her with a small smile. She’s right of course…again. I can’t go back and change the past, even though I know I would do it differently if I could. To think how selfish my decision was brings me nearly to tears again. I can’t go back and fix my life. But I can make a stranger’s life better. I could even save someone.

“How long have you been here?” I ask.

She laughs that throaty laugh again. “Oh Piper, I have no idea. But I’ve handled 72 cases. I admit I took a bit of a break after yours.” She says the last sentence quietly and looks down at her hands.

I can’t stop myself from blurting out what I know is true. “It wasn’t your fault.”

– Piper, Dying to Forget, book 1 of The Station series
