Bruises in White
Andriana Mallory Curtis was an ambitious seventeen years old with dreams of walking the runway for the most famous designers, not just because she loved that particular spotlight or the fact that just thinking about it gets her overly excited, but it was also a chance to take care of her adoptive parents for a change. It was in one such moment of that adrenaline rush that she collided into Sebastian De la Vega.
He was not a calculated plan for her future but how could she ignore an unsteady heart when it made her legs wobbly, and head left muddled? Even though she had insecurities that she was way out of his league and reading more into things that were not, it did not stop her from saying yes to an invitation to his home- a pretty intimidating family of six who for reasons known to them alone, are protective of the last son.
A turn of unforeseen situations occur, and Andriana was on a path to learn two things as a teenager. One; that in the blink of an eye, dreams can be shattered. Two; that family- his family- outweighed her concept of love- especially when Seb's oldest brother, Giovanni had always made sure she knew that from the start. To swear that the day she met Sebastian was a day to curse would be partially untrue.
Being in a position to have this family depend on her to save the lives of their heir and adorable last child was not one she foresaw. Their remorse, regret- whatever each of them labelled it as- was the last thing she sought because she was done with the De la Vega family and done with Seb even though she had a precious part of them... an invaluable part of him with her.
But is she?
