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 cliched 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 try to create a good pace, good development to make the cliches believable and unique in their own way. It's still going to be cliched, 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.
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!
Subscribers and comments are always loved. ;)

The 'Kings'





Attention: No, the main girl is NOT Krystal and her sister is NOT Yoona. I only used pics of the two of them because they can easily pass as sisters and both possess the features that fit my characters.

Chapter 76: I couldn't believe it! This story end already?? This is so sad…I was enjoying reading the birthday part at the playground when suddenly i saw 'The End'. Authornim, you captivating my heart~ Your story is so good and AWESOME! I can't leave even one day without reading your fic. So addictive and so good to the point that i cannot live without your story. The way you describing Sehun's and Ara's feelings is so detail and i can feel that i was on their shoes. Authornim, you're daebak~ Thumbs up to you authornim and hwaiting~

Chapter 79: I've always wanted to study psychology but the sixth form centre didn't offer the subjects during my intake as it was only offered starting the next intake after us.

In regard of your writings, I find it to be fascinating in a way that your choices of words, sentences, characters, storyline (cliché but atleast no drastic plot twists here and there, not a makjang drama-like stories) are different from most books I've encountered (english is not my mother tongue thus I usually read books to either improve or read just so that my english won't get rusty). Well I'm not exactly sure if it is actually the words/sentences or just the over-all feelings or story that makes it different. It's just.. different, in a good way that is.

I was looking for something to read (regardless of whom the main characters would be) and to came across this one of yours is a blessings. It wasn't just reading like fun-reading like it was with other books, but I was learning as well. Not just the language, but about life lessons if I may say that is. Ara's and Sehun's character were also refreshing and the plot is somehow relatable but yet not relatable(?) I mean there were some instances where it felt like I personally can relate to them. It's like a down to earth story. And usually I can see where one story would lead to and so I thought I can see through with this one too, but, to my surprise, my guessings were wrong.
For example I thought Miyoung would've probably going to hunt Ara down with all the power she has but to my surprise she didn't. And another one would be where I thought things will end happily (not that it didn't), in a way where Mrs.Oh would finally give in and accept Ara but nahhh she just wouldn't til the end.

Chapter 68: It's not weird in fact I'm getting emotional. Personally my fav chap by far because you, writer, has once again pointed out another message on how things in our life definitely happened for a reason, good or bad, things happen and there sure is something that we can probably learn from it

Chapter 64: i found this book emphasizing on how someone's past can bring a major change on an individual. From ara down to luhan, all are dwelling on their pasts, how it affect them in some way
