He wants to send Emma to boarding school, but it looks like she will cause trouble before he can do that. Well, a new girl at school knows what Emma has been keeping the secret. And if there’s one thing you can say about Emma, it’s that she won’t let anyone hurt her. So what if she goes back to her old ways and turns into the scary person she was born to be?
