A/N: this is my second Magnum story, and i'm excited! i'm not sure how often i'll be able to update this because i have a lot to do for school, but hopefully i'll have another chapter up before the end of this week. please review and tell me what you think.

Chapter One- Samantha's POV

I can't keep going on like this.

I need to find someone who can help me...I can't escape from Mike alone.

No matter where I go, he manages to find me. I thought that going all the way to Hawaii would throw him off, but I have a feeling that he is here too.

I can't go to the police; they would believe Mike. And, I don't think I have enough money to hire someone to protect me.

Besides, how do I know who I can trust? I don't even know anyone in this state!

Unless...could he still be here?

Even if he is, he was a friend of Mom's, not mine. I think they lost contact with each other before I was even born.

Though, fro m what Mom said about him, he would be a person I can trust.

But, how can I find him? And, when and if I do, how will I pay him? How do I know he'll even help me?

I guess I don't have much of a choice, do I?

A/N: so, what do you think? please tell me so i know whether or not to continue!
