**In this chapter, I want to introduce more of Samire and her past, so I hope that any readers reading this part will enjoy learning about her character some in this chapter.***
Samire woke up the next morning due to the bright sunlight shining through her window and down at her face while she laid on the couch. Yawning with grogginess, Samire got up from the couch and rested her arms on her thighs. Samire glanced at the digital clock on her side table; it read 9:23 a.m. It was rather late for a wake up time for Samire, since she religiously woke up at 4 a.m. for her morning run and training.
