"The first day of school. When we met. It wasn’t for the first time, Elena."
"Then when was it?"
"May 23rd, 2009.”
"But that was…"
"That was the day your parents’ car went off the bridge."
"You were there?"
"Every couple of years I come back here, to see Zach and see my home. Last spring, I was out in the woods, by old Wickery Bridge. And I heard the accident. All of it. I was fast getting there, but not fast enough. The car was already submerged. Your dad was still… he was still conscious. I was able to get to him, but he wouldn’t let me help him, until I helped you."
"Oh my god. When I woke up in the hospital, nobody could figure out how I got out of the car. They said it was a miracle.”
