There was a small, newborn child, a boy. His name was Alexander.He was a nice little boy who loved training and learning.He was at the top of his class at the age of 10. He participated in a lot of competitions and won allmost all of them.
As the mischief life was the success had to come to an end at some time. At the age of 15 he lost his father and hat changed him a lot. He stopped putting any effort into everything, began smoking, taking drugs and stopped communicating with everybody. At 17 he got over his adiction, but moved away from home leaving no note or anything for where he has headed. He started working at a gas station and lived in a small rent. Nobody took him seriously because of his looks. One day at work a group of teenage boys who were obviously drunk tried to rob the gas station. Alexander didn't even attempt the do anything until one of them pulled the gun on him. Alexander quickly grabbed the teenagers arm and twisted it until it broke and he dropped the gun. Then he threw him in front of his friends and looked at them minacious.
They immediately dropped everything and ran leaving their friend behind. After they left Alexander fell on his knees not believing what did he just do. After a few seconds he got up and left.
He was up all night thinking about what happened. The next day Alexander went to a nearby fight club to register for the event tonight, though the entrence fee was all the money he had. That night when it was finaly his time to get on the ring the crowd immediately started cursing him out, but he didn't care. The fight began but it wasn't long. Alexander won by a K.O. and that continued through the whole night. 19 tiring fights with allmost no break. But at last he got what had came for. Money. Alexander began going there every week. One night there was a business man named John looking for a good bodyguard. After the matches have ended the man spoke with Alexander offering him the job. He accepted it without much thought.
Years have passed from when Alexander turned 18. He felt like he was missing something when he had everything. It was his family. Alexander asked John if he could seek out his mothers address and if he could leave his place for atleast a week. They found the address. Alexander was feeling happiness that he will return home, but as well he felt guilt for leaving his mother.
Before going to knock on the door he stopped for a second to think for the last time should he do it or no. While he was staying outside a girl named Gwen came out of the house to walk a dog. She saw Alexander and started questioning him. After a few minutes talking she invated him in the house. When they walked inside Gwen ran to the other room while Alexander was standing awkwardly in the middle of the house. Few moments later a woman walked up to him, huggedhim and kissed him. It was his mother. They didn't say much cause thy were too happy.
Alexander had a lot of time during the week off to catch up with his mother. At the end of the week when he was packing his stuff to go he promised that he will come to visit at least for a couple of days a month.
The End
