Abigail's life was never perfect. It wasn't even very good, but it wasn't as bad as it could be either. She doesn't mind too much because within a few years, she expects to be married. She'll
finally be able to get out of her house and away from her parents. As long as her father allows her to marry Chris, everything will be perfect. Just as Abigail agrees to Chris' plan to guarantee
their future together, her father does the unthinkable, ruining Abigail's hopes for a good - or even a normal future. If she ever sees Chris again, she's positive that he won't be able to love her
and he would never want to marry her. Not after this.
