Chapter 1

Friday is full of food, booze, and tiredness.

People are everywhere. Some are sleeping on sofas whilst the TV blares, drool dripping steadily onto fake pearl necklaces and glitter covered clothes. The rest are slumped in hardback chairs around the dinner table, bloated stomachs spilling out from under dirty t-shirts, eyes dull and drooping as they insult others, yet aim their words at each other.

The clocks tick on as I sit, rotting with them.

She leaves first, the only face in a world of mirrors, and it seems like I'm alone...but then he enters.

A beautiful whirlwind disguised as a statue. his eyes shine as he looks at me and suddenly I'm free. He's never been my brother more than now.

Now that I know, I can't stop myself from gravitating towards him, desperate to tell him that I can see his soul, and that it's perfect no matter what anyone says. So we sit, as the house slowly empties and the hours climb higher, just being.

And in this minute no one is hidden.

Deleted User: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

ngonisiga: I am at loss for words in my attempt to descibe the sublimeness of this story. Kudos to you! I am so impressed at the way the story weaves itself from Navarre to England and back and finally to Sicily. You left me wanting more for this is the stuff dreams are made of in book lovers.

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
