Description

Few understand Valerie's determination to someday make her dream of traveling the world come true, but that's because she has never shared the real reason. Born with the ability to see every person's red string of fate leading them to their soulmate, Valerie is tortured by the fact that her own string is either conveniently invisible to her or so faint that it can hardly be seen, which can only mean that her soulmate is on the opposite side of the Earth. Of course, Valerie chooses to believe in the latter.

Now starting her first year in university, Valerie is struggling to balance her studies and her multiple part time jobs to save up for the money to fund her travels to search for her soulmate. Even though she has no intention to meet anyone and fall in love, it seems like fate has other plans for her--and she might just meet someone who will make her question what she has always wanted and believed in.

Description

As the daughter of a Chinese man who moved to America with nothing but hopes and determination, Valerie was born with a strong will and a certain degree of idealism. This personality mixed with her perfectionist tendencies results in Valerie working extremely hard for what she wants, no matter how far away the goal may seem. Her ability to see red strings of fate has also caused her to believe in soulmates, which has ironically led her to close her heart off, saving it for her soulmate. She will do whatever it takes to find him, even if it means working four part time jobs to save up for the money to travel around the world for her search.

Description

Study. Study. Study. Aside from the occasional hours of gaming to rest his mind, all Aaron ever does is study, whether he be memorizing obscure algorithms or preparing for a test. Certainly nobody was surprised when he selected computer science as his major. He attended the same high school as Valerie, and while she only ever talked to him once or twice, even she knows what a geek he is. He has a penchant for falling in love, although he struggles to act on his feelings, which...is probably not a good thing. Does a soulmate exist, even for him?

Description

Luke has always been a quiet child, content with observing the world and satisfying his fascination than being a real part of it. Pensive and introverted, he is a Literature major who often goes out into nature alone to find inspiration for his writing. Surprisingly, despite his love for the beauty of words and literature, he never writes about romantic love or relationships, and he even scoffs with a hint of bitterness at the fact that great poets often write on the subject of love. Nobody knows the reason behind his jaded view regarding romantic love, but no one can deny that he is a talented writer who is clearly inspired by everything in the world except love.
