"You know Hope you need help. Just let me help you," Hunt says looking into my eyes. I knew he was begging but I couldn't let him help.
"No one can help me. Goodbye Hunter," I say then walk away from him.
I am a nobody. Everyone knows me as Hope Mercer, but my birth name in Hailey Mercer. My mother is dead, murdered years ago. My father is an addict now. He became one after my mother's death. After her death he also became abusive. He beats me every night for no reason saying it was all my fault.
My best and only friend, Sahara, helps make sure I do not get beat too bad. She helps as much as she can. She is like a sister. She also finds it ironic that everyone calls me Hope when I have none.
At school, I got stuck doing a project with him. He is the most feared gang leader/street fighter known in this city. His name is Hunter Morgan, but most know him as Hunt, his street name. He thinks he wants to help me. he thinks he can help me. No one can help me...not anymore.
Why do I have this crazy messed up life? Everything used to be so perfect...
