Now, was there ever a special person there that you believed destiny meant for the two of you to spend your lives together? I’m not talking puppy love, but a strong feeling … I’m talking about incredibly strong, like that person was part of you, but you weren’t certain why? Then, did that person disappear mysteriously, never to resurface during your life—at least the first time through it? Yeah, probably not, but it did for one young man.His name was Randall Devens, the person known previously as the Atlantean Sollis of Poseidis. At the time, he joined with Helena of Gardina- this incarnation, her name was Denise Walker. She was a cheerleader—popular, in a superficial way, and untouchable—or so Randall thought. Denise was dating the Captain of the Football team, Matt Findley. Every other girl in school found her position as his girl enviable, but Denise felt that something was missing in her life—like a meaningful relationship. On the surface, Matt appeared to be the perfect boyfriend, but when they were alone, his demands exceeded what Denise was willing to offer. She knew Randall in school- he was smart, considerate to everyone, a senior. By chance, she met him after a Friday night game, and he asked her to join him for a hamburger. Why she accepted, she didn’t know, but she did. Randall was different from the athletes, the first person she really wanted to date. Their relationship was perfect in her eyes, questionable to the other students, completely unsatisfactory to Matt. When Matt decided to win Denise back, it didn’t work out according to his plan. No one ever saw Denise again after an away game—at least on the physical plane of existence.Randall married Jean Murphy while at college- she was wonderful, just what he needed to forget about Denise. Jean gave him a daughter, Renee, their only child after he served in Vietnam. Twenty-three years later, strange things began to happen—a woman who looked like Denise began following Jean home- there was something supernatural about her, though. When Jean died in a car accident, Randall felt that his life had ended- Renee blamed him for her death. Randall was not prepared to deal with her attitude. They eventually found common ground and a new respect for each other. Life seemed worthwhile, at least until Renee also died. Randall truly felt that his life was over.Only then did the mysterious Denise request his help. While serving a term on the second level of hell, a review of her case came up. The elders knew that she was not supposed to die, but there was a reason why she needed to live. The reason was so important that the Judgment Elders offered her a second chance to change her previous life. Denise could choose only one person to help her—she chose Randall. He would need to prevent her from dying again, once the elders returned him to his senior year of high school. He would forget about her request, but certain clues would assure him that his other life had also been real. Could he figure out why he was a young man in high school once again—in time to save Denise? More would rest on his actions than the loss of Denise a second time, his soul was also at stake.
