To the Reader:
Where to begin this long and beautiful road? How do I start you on a journey that I found dark and cruel, yet simply wonderful? Possibly it being your first time meeting Kimberly, I want to start you on the right foot. I suppose I could start at the beginning when Kimberly and I were born, but that would be boring. I could launch into Middle School where our perverted sense of humor empowered our friendship like liquid lightning. Though, I don’t think you would quite get who Kimberly really was and is. Or possibly High School or College where we came to depend on one another? No, I’d rather save that for later. Since it is Kimberly’s story and I’m the one telling it, I want to start with the best part: the Summer of 1999.
Though I must warn you: this isn’t a fairy tale where dreams come true and we end up happily ever after. This is the brutal reality of two young girls struggling to make it out of a small town together and shared a bond so deep Death couldn’t sever it. This is my version of Inferno and the journey to save myself from it.
