A Domestic Violence Tale:    When Rena met Brent, he was a dream come true. He was a real gentleman, funny, caring and even her overly protective father liked him.  
    But then, she discovered a different side of Brent - a violent side that scared her. Promising that this had been a one time slip up, she forgave him. After all, he was the love of her life.  
      She didn't see the signs - the controlling, the alienation from her friends and dad, the obsession he had with her. She was like putty in his hands.  
      Over time, she learned about the Cycle of Abuse the hard way and she even tried to break free. But in the end, she only saw one way out and it will likely cost her everything.

I'm scared I'm not used to reading straight fanfics...ESPECIALLY ONES ABOUT ABUSE
re reading this again because im in love and ugh why do i have no life
yo, it would've been so cool if you titled this chapter, "What's Up, Doc?" XDD
No in real life. Real life endings are usually bittersweet. Is there really any such thing as perfect happiness?
