Katrina and David's friendship was a bond that couldn't be broken, not matter how many people tried to get in their way.

Starting with that fated moment when David carried Katrina to the emergency room, we travel back through David's memories as he waits to hear if his best friend and the one woman he truly cares for is going to survive...

"I can't lose her. You don't understand how important she is to me," I ramble. I guess I'm in shock because all I can think about is the sight of all that blood over Katrina's beautiful face. "She's my world. I can't lose her."

Right now she is content focusing on work, study and training while hanging out with her best friend David Taylor, a womaniser with a heart of gold that would do anything for Katrina - except watch her get hurt again.

That is, until the dashing Elliot Roberts, a junior solicitor from her work, shows an interest in her despite their office's 'No Dating' policy.
