Ava and Vito in Unlocking Her Innocence are both characters haunted by the tragedy of their mutual past. The darkness in both their natures drew me. Ava was hugely infatuated with Vito when she was a teenager but unhappily Vito’s brother died when a car Ava was driving is involved in an accident. Vito, who doesn’t believe in sharing feelings, has never dealt with his grief. And while Ava has served a prison sentence for her mistake she has yet to get anywhere near forgiving herself because the boy who died was her best friend and she still misses him terribly. Ava has also been abandoned by her family, who are ashamed of her. Even so, in spite of her generic cialis difficult situation and lack of support, Ava is trying to rebuild her life and Vito reluctantly respects that.
It is the spirit of Christmas,
which Vito says he detests, which brings these two together with Vito consciously trying to behave as he believes his late brother would have wanted him to while being quite unable to fight his desire for Ava, who is now an adult and no longer forbidden fruit. He does not believe he can ever forgive her for what he believes she did and Ava knows that he is the one man primed, more than any other to cause her pain and reject her again, yet neither one of them is able to resist the pull of attraction.
