He was a loner who spent most of his free time in the computer lab.

Life was dull and bland until the new girl in school came along. By chance, they met in the library and hit it off right away. They realized that they had more in common and soon became inseparable.

She had added color to his dreary existence, but their happiness was short-lived. He discovered that she was hiding a dark secret about her past, and that changed everything. Now he didn’t know what to do. He had to choose to follow his heart or his head.

Since her family moved to Brooklyn, the village where she was born and raised is still much on her mind.

Layla finds solace in reliving bits and pieces of the village in the neighborhood she now calls home.

Street art on the wall of an abandoned building has become a metaphor for wildflowers she remembers as a kid. Like wildflowers, it grows and thrives in unexpected places, transforming the urban landscape with its vibrant colors.

It may take a while before Layla can fully adjust to the new environment. With a steely determination, however, she knows it will eventually happen.

The floating restaurant reminded him of the time his family fled Vietnam. It was a far cry from the overcrowded boat they used for their escape.

Looking back, it was amazing how they survived and ultimately found a new home in the U.S.

Suddenly, Trung heard his girlfriend’s voice.

“You seem lost in thought,” Kelsey said. “What’s on your mind?”

Should he tell her about the starvation, pirate attacks, bad weather, and rough seas they endured during that dangerous journey? Absolutely not.

“I’m just wondering what I should order on the menu.”

“Choose wisely,” she advised. “You’re footing the bill.”
