The Story:

The story is about a girl named Lacye and the journey of her life.  The story is about her family, her passion, her goals, her motivation, her love life, her secret, her emotions, and in all her life and what comes in the future. 

So the story starts with the Lacye Samuel waiting desperately to get over her graduation, as soon as she graduates she will move out of her mother's house who is an addict and abuser and also with her stepfather that not only sexually molested her but also was a drug dealer. 

Soon one year was passed and Lacye was still living with her mother and stepfather because it was very difficult to pay for to stay on campus and also due to lack of attendance she didn't get the scholarship that she was hoping for. 

Saving all the money for her next year's college fee, Lacye works the hardest and saves all she can. Then one day one of her work buddy Devisha asks her help with her side work for extra income.  It was to go on a date with strangers and be arm candy and get paid. Even though Lacye rejected her offer but as soon as she heard her say that she would get$ 500 she soon agrees and after their work she goes to her apartment for getting ready with Devisha for their date. 

Then the story continues with twist and turns, from business rivals to personal cheat, from love to suffering, from vendetta to human trafficking. The story continues and brings Lacye at a stage where she needs nothing but drugs. 

So being arm candy to earn extra money was the right decision? What happens next? What will her stepfather do? Will her love for Fire will bring her down?
