Prologue

A beautiful melody was being played again. You might think that this lovely piece was heard from a musical instrument but it was not. The music was flowing from a pocket watch, a very ordinary silver pocket watch. Just another piece of time device you see in stores.

Again, she was indulging in her past, her dreams, her everything.

“Mommy, why’d you cryin?” A ten-year old Mara asked, stumbling towards her mother.

“Darling, I can’t really explain to you now. You won’t understand. When the time is right, I promise to tell my Mara everything okay?”

“Okey... It’s a pomise then!” Mara held out her last finger to hook with her mother’s.

Neither of them knew that the right time would never come…
