Leah Greene is dead.  That comes as no surprise to Laine.  She knew it.  She knew it would happen sooner or later.  She still remembers that time when they were in elementary school together and Leah said they would be friends forever.  Leah Greene was popular and everyone wanted to be her friend.  Why would she choose someone like Laine?  Was she really special or was it something else?  Something Laine couldn't understand?  Was it because Laine was easy to control?  Why had Laine let Leah run her life for so many years?  Why hadn't she made her stop sooner?
