(1) I know everything in this story is so, so cliché but I had to make it work…somehow.

(2) All will be revealed later on in the story.

(3) Musa’s parents, Ho-boe and Matlin were in a band with a few others including Musa’s stepmother, Helia and Henry’s mother who was also Matlin’s best friend, Madeline. At the age of 18 Matlin gave birth to Aria. Soon after, Ho-boe and Matlin got married. When Matlin was 20 she was diagnosed with cancer and she and Ho-boe were getting a divorce.
