We have all had our fair share of embarrassing moments. Part of being human is making mistakes, learning from them, and carrying on. Ultimately we use our failures to grow and develop - in most cases, we become better people as a result of them. But what if that didn't happen? What if instead, our failures lead us to become worse people. In my case, I think that's what happened. Like an angel which fell from grace and made herself home in the darkest pits of hell. I never believed in the afterlife, but I think I am destined for hell. The worst part is, I don't care. I once was this perfect girl: studious, hard-working, obedient, and respectful. I'm not the same person anymore. I have done terrible things. Witnessed inhumane acts of violence and suffering. Been through so many hardships. My old life was destroyed. It fell apart before my eyes as a chandelier in an earthquake. Though maybe it was for the better... Without these experiences I would have continued to live under a façade, pretending everything in my life is perfect. I would have continued to ignore the cracks in my perfect little world and turn my head from the disturbing truth that is reality. My childish imagination had been protecting me from the truth for too long. Maybe I would have let it continue to do so for as long as I would live. So, this is the story of my life. The story of how a sweet innocent pumpkin like me became a dark and twisted woman. I opened my eyes to my trauma and let my emotions finally loose. I became everything I ever hated and yet I am everything I ever wanted. I'm not the girl I used to be.

Will Eva realize that Parker is more than meets the eye? Will Parker realize how sweet and caring Eva really is? Or will they always be chasing their happy ending?
