When I was around the age of 12 — 15 I struggled immensely with my walk with the Lord. Sad to say, I know, but true.
I was hard-headed and rebellious to my true calling of God. Seeing my straying away from God, my mom put in front of me as many Christian literature, inspirational books, and training collections as she possibly could.
When I first started reading them, I felt some change, but I was bull-headed.

The story really kicks off when a protester by the artistic alias of Iphis07 vandalises the PR firm's property: The boy up the ladder at the gate was in a kilt and sporran.
The kilt was a bright red tartan; the boy was black-waistcoated and had frilly cuffs, I could see the frills at his wrists as I came closer.
