Learning How to Bend
Liliana "Lily" Hamill is just your average working woman. 5'5" with wavy brown hair the color of milk chocolate and blue eyes, she's never been described by anyone as "a catch." She's pretty enough, what with her athletic frame and well-proportioned face. She rises every day, runs almost every morning, and gets ready for work just like many twenty-something-year-olds in the United States. She's been working mostly in the marketing department at Andino Incorporated since she graduated from a college in Texas at twenty-one, and she's lived in New York City for the past two. She doesn't think she's anyone special.
But she is, because Lily has been blind since birth, although her disability has never held her back. That burden has fallen on her insecurities. Now, though, she's attempting to face her fears. Her closest childhood friend, Joseph Montran, has invited her to a company social event, and Lily grudgingly has agreed to go. All she knows is that it's informal, that she and her guide dog, Chelise, can mostly hang out with Joe and his wife, Katherine, if that's what Lily wants, and that she shouldn't be afraid to "act natural."
What she doesn't know is that social event will change her life forever.
I KEEP EDITING AS I'M WRITING. I'm sorry to anyone who gets updates for old parts to which I make minor grammatical changes. Don't kill me. c:
