Caitlin never meant to stay so long. But itÃ¢Â€Â™s strange how this place warps time. Out here, in the middle of nowhere, itÃ¢Â€Â™s easy to forget about the world outside.
It all happened so fast. She was lonely, broke, about to give up. Then she met Jake and he took her to his Ã¢Â€Â˜familyÃ¢Â€Â™: a close-knit community living by the lake. Each day she says sheÃ¢Â€Â™ll leave, but each night sheÃ¢Â€Â™s back around their campfire. Staring into the flames. Reciting in chorus that she is nothing without them.
But something inside her wonÃ¢Â€Â™t let go. A whisper that knows this isnÃ¢Â€Â™t right. Knows there is danger lurking in that quiet room down by the lake…
