This story is about two lovers who set out in a secret location. It is the year 2000 in Liberia. The lovers go on a solitary trip to Cotton Tree Community in the city of Paynesville. They are celebrating their first anniversary; they have been together for 12 months. They choose the quiet Du River without fear or favour.
Snow Johnson is a tall, skinny young man with brown skin and roughly curled hair. He is sometimes humorous. He has a tattoo of bones and a skull on his right hand. With his small brown eyes, veiny hands, and hairless chin, he has a special effect on Gina Gargar. Sometimes, his talkative nature annoys her, but he always has a way of keeping her smiling. She is slender, like him, and almost as tall as he is. She is dark-skinned. She looks very much like him, except for the veins. Her voice is baritone, and it hurts her when he expresses distrust in her. Her foot slants backwards when she is standing upright. Above all, she is very time conscious. This romantic trip changed their life forever when something strange happened to Snow Johnson.
