In a dark moment of the soul, Raven stepped in front of the rapidly approaching headlamps. Unable to avoid her, Mike’s car picked her up, flipped her across the hood and into the windshield. He flung open the door and ran to her aid. He recognized the dark-haired beauty, a former varsity cheerleader, the girl everyone wanted to be, or be with. He kept a vigil at her bedside the following months, wondering what twist of fate had brought them together that night. He made up his mind. He would ask her to marry him. As soon as she awakens.
