Tiffany – the Mouse of the house
My name is Tiffany Poole, and this is my story.
The world that I was born into was ruled by chaos and fear; yet, all my mother and father wanted was for their little girl to grow up on a peaceful patch of heaven on earth. Fires burned in distant cities that I was never supposed to see. Wars raged in countries that were on the other side of a planet that was too big for me to ever explore. But on our homestead in a rural stretch of what was once the state of Pennsylvania, there was only love and light to guide me. My parents tried to protect me from all of the evil that was spilling out into every corner of the world. They tried – and they failed.
My dad, Gabriel Poole, loved his wife and daughter more than he loved his own life. Unfortunately for him, there came a day when he had to honor that oath. He and Mama went to their graves trying to protect me from scavengers – bands of mercenaries that roamed the lands looking to steal, to kill, and to ravage any decent remains of human society. When the fight for our home and for our lives was finally over, I had nothing left but ruined memories of love and horrific nightmares of those I had lost so terribly.
From treasured jewel to slave girl, and now, secret warrior for a clan that was supposed to have been killed off decades ago. But, despite the orders I was sent to carry out, I’m not here to fight the good fight. I’m here for one purpose only – vengeance.
