Summary:

Claire is a 25 year old girl, searching for peace in her life. Her past is full of beatings, babies and hatred. She ran away from that 10 years ago and now is in New York City being what she has always wanted to be.

Enter Michael.

Michael is patient, kind, and understanding; everything Claire can't stand. When Michael rescues Claire from a fire, he falls in love. He decided that he would keep trailing her until she finally opens up.

Sooner than later, he wonders if she ever will share the story of her past. Then, one fateful Tuesday will change everything for them. Even their love for each other.

 at 1:35am during a storm while listening to the song Arms of an Angel I found this story. I cried the whole time reading it and I am still crying. This made me feel really really really depressed.

I am literally crying right now. I don't even have words to describe how great this was. Great job.

This is so good. You are an awesome writer and this should be something that you should persue. I cried, tears were running down my cheeks. But i was also happy, happy because that was what they story was meant to do, make you feel so much emotion that you would judt want to start crying. Kudos to you, please keep it up!!!

Love exsists, dont search for it. Because it will find you.

wow, is all I can say. I dont know when you wrote this but it was amazing. Claire reminds me of myself. I cried while I read the last 4 chapters. I felt the pain inside of Claire. Its sad to think this was probably a true story in someones life. Thank you for writting this. You have true remarkable talent.
