1 Prologue - Hi, I'm Ari! Nice to meet you.

Hi there, nice to meet you!

I'm Aria Leialoha Venice, but you can call me Ari, that's what my friends call me. I know you're a stranger who's currently reading this, and probably you read this because of your curiosity or just a mere accident; a lot of people call it "serendipity".

Well, it's great that you're curious and reading it right now because it only means that you are interested in knowing my story. You are interested in knowing how my life was such a mess and how I was able to survive with many unfortunate events.

To be honest, I'm not comfortable sharing my life with other people, but here I am, writing this and letting you read this. I have heard with so many people that they're more comfortable sharing their lives with a stranger because first, they don't know the person, and second, it won't be painful if that stranger will judge them as they don't have any connections with each other.

Well, stranger, thank you for reading this. Honestly, I have been so reserved my entire life and I've been pretending to be fine but actually, it kills me inside that sometimes I just want to be gone and burst into nothing.

I am 29 years old with an unstable career and unlucky love life. I don't know what did I do in my past life that I have to suffer like this. It pains me to see that most of my batchmates live their lives, have family on their own, have stable businesses and careers, and happy lives. While I, on the other hand, still figuring out myself, figuring out what I really want to do with my life.

I have been working my whole life but it seems like I'm still going nowhere. I feel like the world is leaving me behind. With all these uncertainties, it's getting heavier day by day.

Things got even worse when this someone ghosted me, leaving me like nothing. He was someone I thought I could rely on, someone I thought who will never leave me. But then again, I was wrong.

If you're going to ask me what I do in my spare time to forget all these ruinous realities of life, well I have lots of them. As an introverted person, I love to read novels, listening to music, and sometimes play with my cat Lumi. I love my own space where I can daydream a lot, and think about how I can change my life my, but then reality strikes back.

Right now, while you're reading this, probably I am asleep dreaming about a stranger who's currently reading and talking about my story. Or, I'm currently watching outside my window daydreaming again, LOL.

I know you really wanted to know my story, and I apologize for blabbing so many nonsense things, so if you're still interested, click on the next chapter. I swear, it's the beginning of everything.

Once again, thank you for giving me time. Hopefully, you will still be with me until the very end.

I love you stranger, and talk to you soon!

Lovelots,

Ari
