«Into this world where hatred runs wild, allow me to cast my many songs of love…»

Writing

Will you promise me that we'll meet again? When you're reborn, will you try to find me?

The noblewoman Suzette always dreamed of starting her own bakery, in spite of her social status. After years of enduring abuse in a loveless marriage, she at last calls upon the help of her best friend, the mysterious wanderer Hikaru, to help her find a better life. Together the two embark on a journey across the continent of Soléiâ to Hikaru’s long abandoned house, full of valuable paintings that may fund her dream.

Along the way, Hikaru and Suzette struggle against an intolerant society, mischievous fairies, a jealous goddess—and most of all their nightly dreams, memories of a past where they were in love once before, a beautiful life severed much too soon. As they come to accept their love in the present, however, a question looms over their heads...can they ever truly recreate the idyllic life of their dreams? Or will it end in tragedy every time?

This is book one of Beloved, an American shoujo webnovel series following the lives of a few interconnected souls, their fates interwoven into a centuries long tale spanning beyond the fall of civilization.

“All I want to do is make you happy…all I want to do is see your wonderful smile again. I miss it so much.”

“Alex…”

Gently I turn him around to face myself, and now his face becomes perhaps even more red than his eye.

“I…I don’t know what the future will be like,” I say, “But…”

I come close to his face, so close our breaths intermingle, becoming a single, warm cloud in the cold night, and I whisper in his ear—

“Would this make you happy, Hikaru?”

For a moment, he merely stares at me, expressionless. His breathing stops entirely.

No, have I made a—

But before the thought can even finish he pulls me down in an embrace, in a tight, warm, clumsy kiss.

My body becomes entirely paralyzed, only the sensation of chills run through me.

As abruptly as he started he pulls away, a look of panic overwhelming his face. I…merely stare.

I’ve kissed Ines innumerable times, but it was…nothing like that. Not ever. Not even my first kiss.

Is…that what they’re truly supposed to feel like? Or maybe it’s better?

“Pšyku! I know that’s probably not what you meant—!” he quickly turns away.

“It is,” I say, grabbing his arm, “You don’t have to second guess yourself so much…you’re right more often than you think.”

Now he doesn’t say anything, but turns back around and merely buries his face in my chest, and grips me tight. I softly return the gesture.

“I think…lêm sâ tsiâ né, Hikaru. I love you so much.”

“Truly?” he mumbles within my chest, “Or…am I just going to wake up from this as always?”

“Well…if you do, then so will I. And perhaps we can continue this then.”
