Lily looked back at Magnolia Hill. With a broad smile, her gaze took in every aspect, the columns that graced the front of the house, the tall windows that looked out over the grounds and her favorite spot, the old magnolia tree in the side yard.
“I’ll carry this picture in my heart. Magnolia Hill will always be my home, but now I’m off to my grand adventure.” She watched the house until it disappeared behind the trees. This place was the only home she knew and as she turned back forward, she took a deep breath.
Today, Lily would start her new life, away from Magnolia Hill. One day she’d return and things would be changed forever for her and Magnolia Hill…
