PROLOGUEThe Victorian mansion seemed draped in an eerie silence, whispers andrustles of fabric as people moved about with as little noise as possible.The door of one particular room remained closed, allowing only one personon a frequent basis - Dr. Trevor White.Dr. White had salt and pepper hair and scholarly glasses and thick,generous lips that smiled easily. But now his lips were grim and tight,shaking just a bit.The figure in the bed lay surrounded by blankets, the long hair spreadaround him on the pillow like brown silk. His eyes stared at the ceiling,the once brilliant blue glassy and dull.Trevor White came into the room and sat down next to him, taking his hand.The man in the bed looked at him and smiled - a pale reflection of thedazzling, innocent smile that had entranced and seduced the entire world.Adrian Bain, world famous rock star and legend. Dying of cancer at the ageof 44.And his childhood friend, Trevor White, gone to the same school as Adrian,shy and lonely as he was, an outsider in every way - intelligent, kind,isolated in his own world of books and hobbies - their lives taking suchdifferent directions, even though they seemed to be twins in so many ways,cut from the same cloth of painful experience.Impulsively, Trevor raised Adrian s hand to his lips and kissed it. Thenhe let him go and whispered, I ll be back to see you.They had made a vow, once, when they were little, never to let anythingkeep them apart. And so, here they were, again, for the last time.Trevor rushed out of the room, wiping away tears from beneath his glasses.He looked up as he closed the door and saw Adrian s two children. Hecleared his throat.How is he, Trevor?The young woman of 18, named Bethany Rose , had a voice soft and yet deep,her lovely hazel eyes calm. It broke Trevor s heart to look at them andremember.
 
He s doing the same. Not - not very well at all. Would you like to seehim? He included Adrian s son in his gaze, and grasped a hand from each ofthem in his own. Evan was a tall, bearish, broad-shouldered young man -15 years of age - brown haired, careless and blunt at times - yet with awarm heart. Evan looked down and nodded his head.Come in then. He ll want to see you. I ll leave you with your father.This is so hard, Trevor! Bethany Rose cried out, and she seemed tocollapse at the knees, as she leaned against the doctor.He rushed to support her and he stroked her hair. She still refused to cry- whether from fatigue or self-control, Trevor could not tell. He thoughtthis was a bad sign.Evan s face became flushed and he turned away.Trevor knew this was the children s styles of coping from way back when.Bethany Rose would become too controlled and withdrawn and Evan would turnaway, avoiding as much as possible.Are you alright? he asked.The girl nodded and turned to her brother.Let s go see Dad, EvanHe looked directly at his sister for the first time that evening, and theyboth walked into their father s room.This was the first time they had been alone with their father for almost ayear.
 
Effie strode into the mansion with her customary fanfare, her floor lengthfur coat draped around her shoulders, dark thick hair cascading in waves.Her face was exquisitely made up, with her usual heavy yet perfectlyapplied cosmetics, as though she were ready for a night on the town.She was the only person there making noise and talking in a loud tone.The housekeeper and other staff members walked by, glaring at her withobvious contempt . They knew all about the ex-Mrs. Bain.They had dealt with her during many years of employment.Now she was back - acting as she always did - as though she still owned theplace and all in it.A beautiful black woman came over. It was Tania, Adrian s personalassistant. He had been rumored to have been in love with her. She worea tight fitting pink suit, her body curvy and yet muscular, her haircropped close to her head and dyed a platinum blonde.Effie faced her and glared at her, taking her in from head to toe.Tania stared only into Effie s eyes.Would you please keep it down? she whispered harshly.Adrian is very sickYes I know. Effie frowned as though annoyed by the stupidity of Tania sremarks. He has cancer, he s dying, yes, gee, I am aware of this, TaniaEffie s nasal Brooklyn accent never ceased to aggravate Tania, a refinedSouthern woman, who had transformed herself with a sexy, cutting edgestyle to fit in with Adrian s entourage.Tania glared at her. Well then, would you please respect that fact andkeep your voice down?Effie took off her fur coat and tossed it on a nearby chair. One of thestaff rushed to retrieve it, giving Tania a helpless glance.
