Lilith was not content. She wanted a family someday, of course. And she wanted love–not to just settle down with the first fisherman to reel her in and start popping out babies.
Her world was only as big as Ouroboros Isle, though, which oddly enough wasn’t the depressing part. The island was her home and Lilith’s roots were here; she just wanted something…more, and whatever ‘more’ was, it hadn’t made itself known to her yet.
Her parents had both died a couple years before.
Lilith’s best friend was Maru. She and Maru were the same age, and had been playmates as children. She talked to Maru about most everything; his dad passed away not long after her own parents, after which they had had only each other for comfort and understanding.
It was totally platonic, though. Lilith cared for Maru and had his back, but they’d never been romantically involved. Most of the villagers thought they would eventually marry, the predestination of which actually annoyed Lilith.
And then there was Shane Stone, a cousin of Maru’s. Sometimes it seemed like the light was just right and the air went soft when she spoke to him….but she knew that was just a smidge of fantasy. They didn’t often see each other or talk, much less spend time around each other, and she had seen him hanging around with another woman from time to time.
