On her first day, Athiya meets the mysterious young Elliot who is equipped with a charming smile and swoon-worthy British accent and suddenly her life becomes chaotic, exciting and so much more complex.

As they start to realize those they trust may not have their best interests at heart, Athiya and Elliot find themselves questioning everything.

Prologue

Smoke and darkness encapsulated me as my heart raced and my breath quickened. I was running through a labyrinth more twisted and black than the web of a deadly arachnid. Piercing cries filled my ears, causing adrenaline to course through my veins and push me forward faster. Every pounding step I took echoed around me as I kept trying to see through the dark haze. Suddenly, the harsh howl of a bloodthirsty wolf intruded my surroundings, stopping me in my tracks as my blood ran cold in panic. The dark clouds above parted, allowing the menacing glow of the moon to stretch out above me, finally shedding some light on the path in front of me. Thunder and lightning began to strike as I pushed my unwilling legs forward once again, an eerie laughter creeping up behind me. Whipping my head around to catch a glimpse of the mansion behind me where the noise seemed to have come from, my face quickly met with the soil beneath me as I tripped.

Tears began to sting my dry cheeks as I struggled to lift myself up off the ground. Something was restraining me, keeping me stuck to the ground. Exasperated, I reached my hand out trying to find something to grab onto, when a bright light radiated meters before me. Having gained a new bout of confidence from the illumination I seemed to have created, I reached back and pointed a finger at the claws of the vine that had caught my foot and it flew into the night sky, freeing me from its grasp. I started running again. Hoping this torture would soon be over, I slowed slightly, only to hear footsteps in the wake of my own. Sighing, I picked up my pace once more, turning a corner within the maze I seemed to be trapped in. Glancing back in the direction I thought I had heard someone coming, I ran straight into the protective arms of a familiar-smelling boy. I looked up bringing the light with me, to find a pair of big blue eyes searching deep into my own. High cheekbones arched over a pair of lips that turned down into a concerned frown.

He smelled musky yet clean. I couldn’t put a name to the handsome face that stood before me, but instantly my heart began to slow and my whole body started to collapse into his muscular arms. He gently put a hand around my chin and brought my face up so that I was looking at him as the corner of his mouth turned up in a half smile that kicked my heart back into overdrive. He put his arms back around my torso and held me close, making me feel safe and cared for as I nestled my face into his shoulder. As a sudden gush of air swept up around me, I pulled my face away to find that we were hovering meters above the ground, the terrifying maze drifting further and further away as we hovered towards safety.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot.
