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
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
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.
