Abuse is meant to keep the victim down and make them feel that they are worth less than nothing. Melissa suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, who stabbed her thirty-two times, many of them in her face. This left her disfigured and mostly paralyzed, and Melissa believed she would never smile again. Until Khalessi came into her a life.

Khalessi lost most of her top jaw and nose, giving her a unique appearance that Melissa found quite touching. These two wounded souls found love in each other and have been inseparable ever since. Despite what happened to them, they’ve learned how to remain positive and help each other heal through their terrible ordeals.
