I was convinced that Caleb was my perfect, other half! Because he was in my dreams, you know! I did everything I could to stay with him! I was even prepared to leave earth… my home… including you, to stay with him! I was ready! But Caleb… He decided that he didn’t want that to happen! And so, he left me. It was sad and unfair. It hurt so much! I thought that after Caleb, there’d be nothing left. But then, I discovered that my heart could still love! And that’s partially thanks to you! That’s how it is. Hearts can heal, Will!
