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?

2. The box

As soon as I got home from the hospital, tears streaming down my face I slowly laid down on the couch and remembered all he good times we had together:

At Christmas, when he'd pick me up and let me put the star on the tree.

On my birthday when he'd spoil me with gifts and 'I love you's'

The day we painted our hands and printed them onto a canvas and he chased me around the house with blue and green hands and I hugged him - on purpose- with pink and purple ones.

And on my mothers birthday where we'd grieve about her and he'd tell me how much she loved me.

His last words slowly came back to me.

I will always love you.

Then it hit me.

The box.

I bolted upstairs, tripping over the steps and rushed into his room. I flung myself onto the ground and ran my hands around the ground until they felt something solid. I pulled it out so quickly it almost hit me in the face.

I took the lid off and the contents amazed me. 

Photo's, notes, belongings. All of which were owned by my mother.

I carefully unfolded the note at the top of the pile. 

It was from my dad.
