Sona’s POV

“Get up,” the woman commands again.

I simply squeak in return.

Realizing i might need help, she slowly holds out a hand for her to use. I cling to it heavily as I stand, cheeks colouring as the lady refuses to look at me, barely supporting my weight. Now she must definitely hate me — I’m about to tip her over!

But then her hand brushes my voluptuous chest, and… oh, God. Why didn’t I notice how pretty she is?

Oh, my Là…

Seconds later, I see spackles of red creep up her cheeks. My face flushes, and suddenly cant help myself but stare at her face.

she’s whipped her head around to hm face me. I almost feel sparks fly between my royal blue eyes into hers, coloured deep-brown dusted with golden ashes.

I freeze in admiration. Shit. She’s pretty.

He and I stood together and observed the surreal heavens dancing above us. Far away, cresting a distant mountain range was what appeared to be the glow of a red sun. With no other direction in mind, Crow began to walk towards it—the beginnings of a very long journey.
