At some point, a girl has to stop running and fight.
Eli and Meg meet every morning to jog the trails surrounding their town. When Meg is uncharacteristically late, Eli knows in his gut that something is wrong.
He finds Meg facing off with a pit bull despite her horrid fear of dogs. Eli jumps into the battle, and when Meg passes up an opportunity to escape the animal, he realizes he doesn’t know Meg at all.
A guy should know the woman he is about to die for.
