“If you love someone, they could make you sad. They could even make you feel lonely sometimes. But, that someone can also make you happier than you’ll ever be.” Zel is a seventeen-year-old who recently emerged to the outside world with shaky steps, not understanding a thing, and taking the concept of love all wrong. Mika and Ian, the redheaded twins, have been living a peaceful high-school life until a certain someone bombards their life and flips it upside down. And from a shadowy corner, there is Kiki, a timid and friendless girl for all her eighteen years, who had finally decided to change. Delving into their pasts and dark secrets, and meeting one another halfway, through broken and mended hearts, how will it turn out for each of them? And what kind of love will they taste? ⓒAll rights reserved

Author’s Note


“I’ve never believed that beauty could exist in self destruction. Then I saw you. And your eyes told stories with dangerous beginnings and lost endings, where every page was breathing with color.

Yes, you were beautiful to me.” –Nicole Torres.

Sushi3809: I would say, it is splendid to see a writer who knows their way around language. I do think, however, that maybe it was a slightly hurried plot line. especially the slightly abrupt relationship between Jessie and Jason. It was an enemies to lovers trope and I just wish you would have let it burn ...
