A past she told no one. A present she hates. A future she doesn't want to think about. But she does know that it involves death; a death she's looking forward to. ✦✦ If the people you loved suddenly slipped away, right out of your life, what would you do? To Gracie, the only explanation was to embrace what she tried to run away from with open arms, allowing herself to become the girl he saw her as; and now she is. She changed her lifestyle and let the sadness overwhelm her. She welcomed the fact that she drives everyone away; her jagged scars the only reminder of her hopeless family and heartless teacher. There was hope - a fire - sparking inside of her, growing every single day. The blood, the fear, the danger. Everyone knows nothing can be fixed, but can two broken parts make a whole? Bann, the one who is loved by all. With the million dollar smile and the soul of an angel, who couldn't resist? With one glance into her eyes, the sadness lurking in her burning grey orbs struck him with a sudden realization; he wasn't entirely alone in this world. He was sucked into something he never could foresee, forcing his heart to be pulled in two ways. And yet, when she tries to push him away, trying not to become attached to another useless guy, it only draws them closer together, as he was curious about the silent girl. The past may always be there, waiting for the right moment to attack, but there is always light - fire. What does fire do? Burn. Grow even when you try to put it out. One little spark can burst into a flame. ✦✦ WARNING: if you are sensitive to rape, abuse, or anything along these lines, enter at your own risk.
