"He was an angel sent from the heavens. But when he stared into your eyes, He devoured your soul, Stealing the happiness that he never had.” Chris Lee is an eighteen-year-old, suffering from Protanopia colour blindness, who struggles to maintain relationships until he meets Alexia, a girl who reminds him of his past love Valentina. Their love blossoms through their youth, filled with smiles and cuddles, until two years later he becomes a suspect in a murder. The sweetest smile holds the darkest secret.
About Year of the Novella program: Over the course of 2019, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at the Story Factory. Their goal was to produce not just a fistful of poems, or a story, or a script, but a fully realised novella. This is one of the 11 novellas produced in these workshops.
