The question is not how love will change you, but the distance it will take you...
Teardrop on a Butterfly Wing is an elegant tale about Emily, who finds herself trapped in an unhealthy relationship with her high school boyfriend Adam. While he plays hot and cold, and fools around with other girls, Emily sees through his neediness and the destruction that the relationship unleashes. The narrative realism of the story explores young romantic relationships with incredible insight, heightened by poetic, vivid imagery and sharp dialogue.
"Fuck Adam. Fuck his friends. Fuck all his lies. Fuck all his promises, and fuck him for ever saying that he had loved her.
275 days, 274 nights and 7 hours—that's how much time had passed since Emily had thrown all of his stuff into boxes and told him to leave. It felt more like it had been 10 years and an amputation.
Adam and Emily met in high school. Butterflies took flight in her stomach the moment she saw him from across the school cafeteria, as he was sitting with his friends eating lunch. It took a mere split second for his mink-brown eyes to lock onto her gaze. On prom night, they talked for the first time after her music class performed Viva la Vida. They were inseparable from then on and happy they had found each other when there were so many other places to play."
