describe how I felt.
Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this
dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a
cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place.
I wanted to stay that way forever.
But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in
the real world.
Something’s not right in Mia’s head.
The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no
clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the
ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like
demeanor, James with his questioning gaze. And Briggs.
The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.
As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is
amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …
Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.
“Have you ever been in love, Mia?”
I just stared back at her.
“Because I think I’m in love with …” she shuffled closer to me whispering, “James.”
It was not like I had been expecting her to say Briggs.
“He’s so gorgeous, don’t you think?” Her eyes lit up enthusiastically as she fiddled with her choker then twirled her hair between her fingers. “His hair is so long and silky … and you should hear him speak Japanese. It makes my toes curl, it’s so lovely.”
Her eyes caught my stare. “Say. Did anyone ever make your toes curl, Mia? It’s the best feeling.” Her eyes widened. “I wonder what your mind’s been keeping from you,” she mused.
I wondered that myself.
Waking up with no memory, Mia tries to find her footing in a world
unfamiliar to her. She doesn’t know much about herself, actually nothing at all,
except for the fact that she can’t talk. But she knows one thing: she’s not like
the rest. Her hair is auburn and her eyes are a mesmerizing green.
A kind, warm-hearted guy who likes to take care of the underdogs.
He lives with his sister and two friends when they stumble upon Mia in their
apartment, instantly taking a liking to her. Nobody knows, but there’s something
Dante’s hiding from everyone. His smile makes you want to smile in return, and
his eyes are alike to an ocean.
A free-spirit, Amy is the younger sister of Dante by one year.
She’s nineteen, her favorite color is pink, and she may have a slight obsession
with a boy named James. She’s addicted to reality TV and loves to bake. Her
favorite accessory is the black choker she can always be seen wearing.
The object of Amy’s affection and Dante’s buddy, he works as a chef
at a restaurant nearby with Dante. He’s the quiet one in the group but has a
silent inner strength which Amy finds quite addicting. He’s fluent in Japanese
and one day wishes to travel the world.
The odd man out, Briggs is part of the group but also has his own
secrets. He’s distant and doesn’t trust the red-haired stranger that just
happened to land in his apartment living room. His profession is unknown and he is always wearing sunglasses, as if hiding his passionate, fiery nature.
Although sometimes he can’t help showing his point of view.
