Touch of Fear

Description

Can a heart that is hardened towards this world love?

-

Park Ara hates rich people who don't know the toughness of life, but unfortunately she attends a prestigious school, that is filled with spoiled adolescents, with a scholarship because certain circumstances force her to do so. That is something she can still endure, though, by ignoring the existence of the other students. However, things change when her little sister transfers to the same school and falls for one of the so-called Kings of her school ...

While trying to save her little sister from a heartbreak, she's met with the those Kings more than she'd like.
Especially one of them. Before Ara can grasp what's happening, she finds herself doing something she has never wanted. Falling in love.

But can a heart that is hardened towards this world love? How can one easily trust another person after years of being cautious and suspicious?


A story about the struggles of life, and within it, a girl who can't afford to fall in love, and yet, still does.

Author's Note
 
Hey guys! This is dreamyflower and here I am starting my next long story. Okay, I know I am not good at descriptions, but please bear with me, haha. The actual story is better, believe me. Since my main story Heart of Ice is ending soon, I decided to put up the foreword of my next big story first. This is not going to be like my fluffy shortstories with no plot and only romance, but it's not going to be like Heart of Ice and play in a fictional world and deal with politics, either. This will be a serious, yet romantic story with realistic aspects regarding life set in the real world. 
 
This story might seem very clichéd and boring at first - because come on, how often have we come across a plot about rich kingkas and a poor girl mixed with romance and schoollife? Too often, if you ask me -  BUT trust me, I will create a good pace, good development to make the clichés believable and unique in their own way. In the sense of making the overused clichés enjoyable and realistic. It's still going to be clichéd, yes, but with little twists and development that will hopefully cause you to feel less as if you're reading and more as if you're living the story. I hope, you will enjoy it. I was hesitant about making this story because I feared people would overlook it because of the clichéd surface of the plot, but in the end I just had to do this because I was craving to write it. It's also to show people that clichés are not bad if you use them the right way, and make them realistic. Instead of an extremely mindf*cking plot, this is going to focus on three things: Characters, Pace and Development. Just to warn you so you won't have wrong expectations. 
 
The idea is mine, but I don't own the characters besides my own. I put much effort into my story, so please don't plagiarise.
Hope you will enjoy it!
