Silver Bow

I open the door and see a teenage boy with messy black hair and black eyes.

"Uh...Can I help you?" I ask.

"Can I come in?" he asks, playing with a silver skull ring on his right middle finger. "My name's Nico di Angelo."

1. Prologue

My name is Celeste Silver Arya.

I'm fifteen years old.

And this is my story.

•••••

Maybe I'd be beautiful, if you were able to look at me a different way. Maybe I'd be beautiful, if you could overlook the intensity and piercing of my silver eyes. Maybe I'd be beautiful, if you were able to forget the standard image of beauty. I'm not blonde. I don't have baby blue or emerald green eyes. I don't have a perfect California tan. My hair doesn't curl. I don't wear pink.

My hair is jet black. My eyes are silver. My skin is a light olive color, but it has a slight tan to it. As if I spend a lot of time in the woods, which I do. My hair is long and straight. I wear black, grey, and silver. Sometimes white. Or anything but pink.

I don't live a particularly exciting life. I live with my dad, who's always working out of the country. He's a nature and wildlife photographer, so his trips are justified. Although, I'm alone all day, every day.

You get used to it, I guess. I get a couple hundred dollars a week to spend on groceries, plus a separate allowance. So I have freedom enough. But still, it would be nice to have someone to care for me.

I'm torn from my thoughts when I hear the doorbell ring. Curious, I leave my room and go to the foyer. I open the door and see a teenage boy with messy black hair and black eyes.

"Uh...Can I help you?" I ask.

"Can I come in?" he asks, playing with a silver skull ring on his right middle finger. "My name's Nico di Angelo."
