A forbidden love is always the truest.
Yes, it's surely a cliche by now. There have been millions of lovers torn apart and struggling to reunite in hopeless and condemning circumstances. So in telling you this story, I am just telling you one of many. They were just a drop in the ocean. But to them, their world was the only one in existence, even when it was crumbling around them. Isn't that always how it happens?
If you don't quite understand me, I'm telling you that if you cry for these starcrossed lovers, you're crying for them all. Every last pair who were ripped away; for the ones who were finally rejoined after years of toil, or for the ones who died apart and never saw each other again.
So. If you would like to hear the story of a girl and a boy who held stars in their eyes and each others' hearts in their hands, then read on. This story contains many things, among them, a large crumbling manor, a variety of skies, an afternoon by a lake and a poisonous kiss. Life, after all, is made up of moments, and the following are those that made up the story of Lena and Eirian.
