One way or another

Hope is a 17 year old girl who's mother died mysteriously 6 months after giving birth and her father passed away not long ago due to disease. With no siblings and most of her family living far away, she's forced to live with her uncle. A rich but cruel man who has no intention of giving Hope any care or love. Her Aunty on the other hand is a kind and giving lady.
But Hope knows she can't stay. Her last option is to run away. She cannot spend another day with her Uncle, who seems to be hiding something. Big. Will Hope be left with anything? All seems to be going the wrong way until she meets a sweet boy with a kind heart who decides to take the poor girl under his wing.
What will Hope find out? Her Uncle's secret? Love? Or all the wrong things?


1. Dad's last words

Hope's POV

"I will love you forever, Hope. Don't forget that."

My eyes are red and puffy from crying. First my mum and now my father? Why me?

"Please don't leave me, daddy. Please, I need you." I cried, choking on my words.

"Please, darling, be strong. I know you will. You are the most beautiful flower on the face of this Earth and I know you'll be okay without me-"

"No daddy!" I screamed! "Please don't leave me! I won't be okay! Don't go!"

My father was dying. Slowly he was getting weaker and weaker.

"You will be okay. You'll be going to live with my brother for a while. He'll take care of you."

"NO DAD!" I screamed! "Please stay!" "I love you! I want to live with you. Not Uncle Ken! Please, I love you!"

"I'm sorry, Hope." He was now gasping for each breath.

"Hope, the box... under my bed..."

"What box? What are you talking about?"

"Hope, just... remember that... I love... you. I always have... and I always will. You are... beautiful. So, so beautiful."

"Dad! No! Don't leave! Please don't go!"

"I'll never leave. I'll always be with you... In here."

My dad slowly lifted his hand a placed it on my heart.

"I will always love you." 

And that was it. My father, the last thing I had, was gone.

"I'll always love you too, dad."

And slowly walked out of the room, heartache sweeping through me, tearing me apart.

"I am so sorry."

Said a voice. I looked up and saw a Doctor, a pained look on his face.
