The Girl With Ice In Her Eyes (ON HOLD)
He's been watching her.
He knows it's weird and that he shouldn't do it, but he doesn't care.
She's beautiful. Beautiful and scarred and wonderful and... and he can't describe her. He doesn't have the words to describe what he sees when he looks at her.
Blonde. She's very blonde and very pale and very small, the girl he sees. Vulnerable and reserved at first glance, like a dormouse that you don't notice until it makes a sound. But then she smiles, that sudden, explosive smile. It's small, her smile.
But it's powerful, bright and cheerful and genuine.
She's a good person. She cares about people. She stays out of the way, keeps under the radar, doesn't cause issues or make enemies. She's a peacemaker, a little bit shy, a little bit nervous--that's the girl that other people see when they look at her.
But sometimes, when she thinks no one is looking, she changes. And the girl that he sees comes out to play. She's cocky, a little bit brazen, dismissive and aloof. Her lips curl in disgust at the world she sees around her and in her ice blue eyes... deep inside, only visible if you're really looking, there is a coldness, a dark, empty, echoing, aching coldness that makes his heart beat faster and his breaths sound loud to his own ears.
She is beautiful.
And so he watches her. He watches her because he knows, that someday, some way, the sunshine will fade away and everyone will see her for what she truly is. Ryelle Atwood is not a shy, vulnerable miss. She is not kind or friendly. She doesn't care about anyone or anything.
She is the girl with ice in her eyes.
Ryelle Atwood has changed her name, her personality, and her entire life's story. Unfortunately, starting over isn't easy when her past doesn't want to let her go, and soon enough, she's faced with a choice: succumb to the darkness she can't leave behind, or run away with the beast she never saw coming.
