I wish heroes didn’t only exist in fairy tales.
The closest I have to the myth is Skyler, my best friend. Maybe it’s selfish, but I’m so grateful not to be alone in my life, or in our high school parking lot when the bullying begins. Every morning, standing by my side is my best friend.
Sky and I are… different. Or, at least, that is how it feels. So, we hold each other near and keep everyone else at bay. The only two people who can see through our defense are the Wise Ones. They love us unconditionally and do their best to shelter us, but they’re high schoolers themselves. How can I break their hearts and tell them they are… failing?
My name is Serenity. And I am a girl with secrets.
When I meet Dereck and instantly have visions of past lives with him, I have to think that maybe heroes really do exist.
But can I trust the light he brings? Or will his brightness only lead me further into the dark?
