When Melisande Nefer meets local boy Bomani Tarik, her life changes. Just when she's met that special someone, her mother lays on her the burden that Melisande never expected. But Bomani offers her a chance of freedom, a way to save their love. She has to decide between everything she's ever known and a distant land that she's never even dreamed of. But love tramples all, right?

To go with the other guy, not Jacoby. Sorry if I confused anyone! :D

Great story! Love is a wonderful topic to write about. I think you could write more for this story! Maybe add a few chapters about how she escapes Jacoby to go with him, or how her mother learns in the end that money isn't everything. But even if you don't plan on revising your story, it's great the way it is! :)

The story is overall fluent in a wonderful story-telling way, it was truly lovely. It held my interest and connected me with the characters, which all readers look forward to, no matter how long or short the story really is. I loved how the way you described the little things I could imagine clearly in my mind and that just added more personality to the story immensely. You're very talented, great work! :)
