Kandi, a young adult who is haunted by a past she doesn’t even remember – a memory that she has repressed – goes to college, expecting the best times of her life, yet finds herself being tormented by her Biology teacher. She doesn’t understand why, so she finds solace in her best friend, Jimmy.
She loves Jimmy, more than anything. They have been best friends for years. He’s a cop, and she finds him extremely attractive in his uniform. But, he’s overprotective. Way too overprotective. He won’t let her go anywhere without accompanying her, and she’s surprised that he allowed her to move to college without following her. She doesn’t understand why he’s the way he is until the memory resurfaces.
Then, her entire world comes crashing down, knowing why her Biology teacher hates her. She cannot bear the memory, and she wants nothing more but to repress it again. She now must pierce her way out of the darkness.
