I grew up without the life everyone around me got to experience. The life where they were safe and protected. I lost everything I had ever loved, taken by the man who hated me for a reason I never understood. The daily fear of my childhood made me shut my heart away from everyone as an adult. Until her. She came into my life and turned it upside down. She was my friend, she was my confidant, she was my strength. She also was the reason I have just made the worst mistake of my life, I let my anger win and now I'm paying for that moment of insanity. Now she is the one who holds my future in her hands, everything is in her control. Will she be able to make the biggest decision of her life and save me from losing what I have spent so long trying to find? I didn’t know there was someone out there who would give up everything for me, that they would put their life in danger for me. That they would be the home I had always dreamt about. She is my everything and I hope she knows that she’s … Leaving Her Mark.
