She was my first love. She was my first hate. The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty. Until I dimmed her light for good… Or so I thought. Now she’s back. Cracked. Broken. Lost. And for the first time in a long time, I feel free. Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future. Her misery is my music. Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating. For so long, all I’ve done is hate her. So why do I love her?

This is a story that many will be able to relate to in the sense that it is particular to social issues hitting our young adults every day. This story begins as an innocent form of bullying. Yes I hate to admit it but in todays form bullying is more prevalent. Older teenage girls feel that it is ok bully

What I love here, is that Kristi has the ability to bring this issue to the forefront and to dig into a deep root of this behavior.

Maybe just maybe she will her admittance to love the unlovable heal a broken heart and soul while mending her sorrow too.
