Reality hits her one day when she overheard Sam talking to another woman and said that he is just using her. From that moment on, she vowed to reclaim her pride and seek revenge.
Her fury further ignited when Sam belittled her and said she won’t be able to avenge herself because they live in two very different worlds.
