She grew up in the safety of her home. Years passed, experiences advanced. Her brilliant smile faded. Her glowing eyes turned cold. Now consisting of a bleeding heart and lifeless soul. Everything she had once been shielded from was now taking over her life. It was all spiraling out of control. Without that shield, she fell victim to what she thought was impossible. Treated like trash and given up on. The only guys she seemed to attract now were the cheaters and abusers. Trying to heal each heartbreak by running to the arms of another guy. Only to have him throw her away soon after. She no longer had a safe place...She was only worthless now..that's it.
