In our world if you find the one you are meant to be with, your soul link; and they do not love you back you will turn invisible. The invisible ones live in a world beside ours. Unable to ever come back. Sometimes if you are close you will be able to see the shadows of the people who have crossed over. But they do not come and live in our world.
And there really is no way back.
My dad said that it was because they had lost all hope for the world they lived in after a piece of their soul was rejected. And so they must chase after that piece of their soul in hopes they will someday find it again.
He had always said don’t let love become scary. You are not going away, you are simply finding your heart again. But even as he told me the stories. Even after I had seen it happen with my own eyes. It still scared me. And so when I felt my heart skip a beat for my classmate three years ago. I held it in. Afraid of the tomorrow that might come.
But I suppose it was bound to happen. It had to happen. But first I needed to be sure. I needed to be sure that she was my one.
I didn’t expect that it could go so horribly wrong. I didn’t expect that the day I confessed would be the day Yun Mi would die. I didn’t expect it would be the day Yan Jing would disappear. And even though I knew I could disappear to the shadow world beside us. I didn’t think that the pain from that day would lead to the rest of forever. But most of all I never could have known that the shadow world would be how I would find my true love.
