Chapter One

γ€Œ March 18th 」

My friends were laughing, playing games and drinking. I wasn't into all of that so I spent my time in the kitchen.

"I'm solar."


It struck me as odd because I'd only ever heard that name in reference to the galaxy; that should've been my first clue. The first indication into how deeply your world of fulfilling seconds would disrupt mine of longing moments.
