Follow the sad tale of a young girl who's life is changing before her eyes and she doesn't even know it.
Anova believed her family served for the good but to her surprise that was far from it. They showered her with her hearts desire only to hide from her their dirtiest darkest secrets.
Her whole family was in on this, even her friends families. It took a stranger to reveal the truth to young naive Anova.
"You're not made for my world Anova, you're too innocent."
"Take it, take my innocence tell me what I need to do Jay. Just.... please don't leave me here by myself. I-It's not safe here."
"As long as i'm here you'll never be safe."
She'd lost her family and now the love of her life as she proclaims is walking out on her.
Things were fine up until almost a year ago Anova knew nothing of the Mafia life her entire family lived she was basically living in the dark.
"I feel as if i'm an outcast like there's this big secret everyone knows about except for me."
An outcast she was to her family, she sat in the dark to her family's double life.
"If it weren't for Jay i'd probably would've let them brainwash me into thinking this is who I was meant to be."
I will no longer be weak.
I will no longer need saving
I will stand on my own two feet
They say the road less traveled is too difficult which is why many people opt for the easy way out?
What if it's not a choice what if it's your destiny?
Cursed by generations of murderous wrong doings, what if all of this was written in the stars for us because of our ancestors?
Could we change fate? Could we write our own ending? Happy or Sad.
The anwser I recieved was no. You can't escape your fate because it always has a way of catching up to you. Just learn to accept it and live with it.
But I couldn't, I couldn't choose between family and love who could?
Days I sat writing in this journal trying to decipher why me?
I didn't do drugs, I didn't get into fights, I had dreams to do big things why would God want to take away all of the goals I dreamed to achieve?
My life has been a whirlwind of excitement and passion but at the same time death and endless pain.
Who ever is reading this I want you to know that I feel something is going to happen. My family has arrived into town and I've never seen so many of them here unless it was serious.
My father and all of the men in the family haven't left his study and the women all sit together and murmur. On the streets no one says "hi" to me anymore they just stare and scurry away.
Jay has been absent lately in my life, he's always busy and seems to freak out a lot more often was he in on this secret too? Did he know about my father?
I'm scared that people are going to die but who?
If you read this please know that I've left what holds to be my prized posession. Care for this journal it'll help you whoever you are along in life.
