The Hope of Tomorrow
"Love is like a bottomless chasm that even the smartest of us can't understand."
Ariana's life is a mess. Her mother is a drug addict, her father cheats on her mother, and her brother died in a car accident three years ago. When Ariana meets Luke, she refuses to allow him to know her, believing he will cause her more pain than she could ever handle - the pain loving someone more than yourself, and having it ripped away.
Luke is a bad-ass football player who's striving for a scholarship, lost his sister to cancer, recently broke up with his girlfriend and takes his mind off things by having sex and drinking booze. When Luke meets Ariana, he realises that sometimes love is not just loving someone else, it's learning how to devote yourself to someone else entirely, making a promise to them and learning that when you aren't strong enough on your own, you can be strong enough together.
When an interesting turn of events takes place, it will render everybody speechless. Something nobody ever saw coming.
Follow Luke and Ariana on their journey to love, and learning what love really is - looking beyond the surface and into the heart, and learning also what it sometimes means: letting go.
