“Ariana is a 17-year-old student, popular among humans, hated by animals and with almost zero interest for boys. Her relationships always came out of boredom, and it was all because a dream she had since childhood. A dream about a man covered by shadows who protects her from flames.
Michael was forced to live in the jungle for a long time, having only the company of his carer. After many years he returned to the civilized world. He enrolled in high school and is trying to lead a normal life. He did not expect to make any friends, as the dark rumors around him appear from the second day of school, but Ariana is ready to accept him for who he is, without batting an eye.
Ariana is intrigued by his wild eyes, and not only. He also seems to hide a very sweet disposition behind that wildness.
Or so she thought…
“The whole class began to murmur at the news, which honestly meant nothing to me. With my mind miles away to my mysterious boy from the lake and what I thought I saw in the hallway, I was looking at the blackboard, but I wasn’t actually paying much attention … until he walked in. My thoughts combined with the image in front of my eyes, analyzing him from head to toe, finding similarities and differences. He was tall and athletic, with brunette hair partially covered by the hood of his jacket and his wild eyes fixed at a point in the back of the class. His defensive yet defiant posture, with his hands in his pockets and his head slightly tilted, made our teacher cough theatricaly, disapproving.
The parallel worlds I lived in started to collide when he sat at the empty desk in front of me. The person in my mind and the one in front of my eyes became one. I looked around at my classmates, but none of them was looking at him directly, not even the teacher; they clearly saw him as some kind of troublemaker and they were looking to stay as far away from him as possible. I smiled, though he couldn’t see me, because now my mysterious boy from the lake had a name … Michael.”
After a few minutes, Michael came back and dropped to his knees in front of me.
“God, are you hurt? You’re bleeding.” I asked him in a hurry.
“You always worry about others. It’s not my blood.”
Strangely, I wasn’t surprised by what I heard. There was a brief pause in which Michael looked at me. Those eyes, the energy he was emanating; it made me feel safe. He was concerned about me.
“Are you afraid of me now?” he asked with a calm voice, though I knew he was scared of the answer.
A Bit about Andreea ~
I was born in 1991, in Bucharest, Romania. (Yes, that Romania where Dracula lives.)
I graduated in 2010 from an art high school but didn’t follow up. My wish was to paint with words, not with colors.
I left my home country in 2015 and moved to the UK, with my husband, where after a lot of work I made my dream come true by publishing my first novel.
Even as a child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. Since then, I have progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much more significant audiences
Now, as a professional Author, I aim to create different worlds where my characters can unveil their true potential — a mission which has cast me in many different roles: author, artist, and creative innovator.
