‘The pauper’s girl’ By Amina Oladejo

Raven stone, dubbed most beautiful girl in West hill by the townfolk, is a girl who treasures silence but craves attention, detached from the world but harbours a sincere kindness in her heart.

When poor, innocent looking Hayden Keating comes walking through the doors of her class for the first time, something stirs in Raven.

For some reason, she sees beyond his rumpled clothes and worn out shoes, and what she finds there leaves her helplessly overwhelmed.

Hayden knows from the first time he sees the raven haired, emerald-eyed girl that she’s way out of his league. However, he just can’t convince his eyes to stray away from her, his heart to stop seeking hers and his mind to stop replaying every little detail about her.

An unusual pair, brought together by the irresistible need to exchange words, to share thoughts, to hold, to discover, to possess, to love.

For their love wasn’t one written in the texts, analysed and scrutinised for the world to see.

It was more sacred, a secret shared between trembling hearts that sought solace in one another. It was overcoming the fear of loosing themselves, their identities in one another, the lingering touches, the smiles that couldn’t be hidden, and the feeling of finding home.
