Melanie is waiting for the gates of the Virginia Correctional Facility for Women to open. The guard escorting her pushes a large black button, and the gates open. Melanie is finally free. She walks out and does not turn to look back. Five years in that place was five too many for Melanie, especially since she was innocent of the crime she was convicted of. She was convicted of armed robbery, but she took the fall for boyfriend of two years, Justin. Melanie will never forget that night where Justin abandoned her in that corner store, and she was forced to take the fall for the crime. Melanie was just the watch person, but the police caught her and she was convicted for the crime Justin committed. Melanie just wants to put the five years she was in prison, and the three years she was with Justin, all in the past. She never wants to be taken advantage of the way she was by Justin. She is hoping she never sees him again, because she won't be responsible for any harm she causes him. She wants a new beginning, but with no complications at all. To Melanie, people are complications. From now on, she vows to herself that whatever she wants, she has to get it herself. Her heart is on lock down and she doesn't want to get hurt the way she was hurt by Justin. No woman, but especially no man, is ever going to hurt or use Melanie ever again. She will never trust anyone again, Melanie promises that, or that is what Melanie thinks.
