Characters are OCC and are not cannon pairings. Story starts out in May 2009.

**** Please read the character development below to fully understand each person and the storyline.*****

Disclaimer: I own nothing but this story line. The wonderful characters all belong to the amazing Stephanie Meyer. Football stats for Emmett and Jasper are based on the real college stats of David Pollack, Defensive End and David Green, Quarterback, both former UGA football players. A few of the dates have been changed in order to fit my timeline in this story.
