"You know nothing about real pain." he looked down at her scornfully.
She looked up into his eyes, hers gleaming with such fire that he had to take a step back. “What would I know about pain? I know that I have lost a thousand battles to nightly demons, experiences a hundred heartbreaks and faced constant disappointment. I have fallen more times than I care to remember and had to stand up each time without anyone to help me. I have lost so many people that I have learned that all of life is just the art of letting go. Like a phoenix, I have risen from the ashes. Pain has made me the person I am today. And you,” she smiled wryly, ‘You think I know nothing about pain.’
