Fighting For Hope
"I did not expect you to be here, Angel." He flashes her his signature smile while having her pinned up against the wall, with their faces just inches apart.
Resisting the urge to scoff, she skilfully moved her legs, catching him by surprise. She caught the side of his foot and swung it sideways, causing him to fall onto the floor face first.
"Don't trust anyone but yourself, or you will get hurt," were the last few words Hope Valentino's father said - causing her to live in her own silent world.
All she grew to want was revenge, she wanted those who stolen all happiness from her life to get hurt and slowly vanish into dust. She trained herself to fight, but she knew clearly what she was dealing with, and she needed assistance.
It was then Tyler Rivera - a young man whom constantly had problems back at home - unknowingly stepped into her world of vengeance.
It was not long before he realized that in her world, merciless was an understatement.
