Disclaimer: The song "We've Only Just Begun" belongs to the Carpenters.

Crabapple Cove, Maine
September 20, 1988

Elizabeth McIntyre sat in her car listening to the radio and singing along as she drove into town to pick her kids up from school. Just as the song ended another followed but this one had a special meaning to it, it was "We've Only Just Begun" by the Carpenters. It was a popular song in 1978. It was Ben and Elizabeth's song they danced to at their wedding. Thoughts began to dance in Elizabeth's mind. September 20 was always a day that was filled with terrible memories for both Elizabeth, her children and the Hunnicutt's. It was five years ago today that Ben was killed. She'd never forget what happened that night. The words of that song flooded her mind with memories. She remembered how he sang to her that song as they danced to it their wedding night. They would often sing it together to the children when they couldn't sleep at night. The lyrics were so real. The two of them had built a life together. They had had four children, a beautiful colonial style mansion in Crabapple Cove, she had become a star and he had become a promising young doctor. They had it all, and in one night it was gone. As the song ended her eyes were swelled up with tears, she'd always hated the fact that the man who killed her husband was free and Ben was dead.
