His life is interrupted when a 20-year-old package mysteriously shows up on his doorstep. The completely unexpected delivery is from his very first love, Melody Hall. With mixed feelings of anticipation and apprehension, he decides to try and reconnect. Almost immediately he experiences the rekindling of the relationship that had meant so much to him so many years before. However, simultaneously and almost equally unexpected, Saul is suddenly faced with some difficult career choices. This situation is almost identical in its implications as the first time he and Melody were together. Written by Stew Harty
