I'm CorinneNicole.'s alter ego and this is my story! The demo 'LovePotion.' is based off of my life and its adventures. Scroll through my illustrated booklet to watch the story unfold!
TrackOne: Love Potion.
It all started with the perfect AlienBoy. A boy who broke my heart. But we've all heard that story before, right? Well, like the idiot AlienGirl I am, I decided to take my heartbreak sob-story to the NEXT level.
While having an emotional breakdown in public, I came across this potion thinking that it would cure me. Thinking MAYBE I would get him back. In space, we have all kinds of remedies for heartbreak. The only issue, is that it comes with great cost. It would be in my nature to find the most reckless and careless way to heal myself. So, I took a sip of the LovePotion.
But, we will get to that later.
TrackTwo: The Wheels.
Once I drank the LovePotion, I was taken back in a dreamlike state through a series of events in my lifetime.
This is me when I was a young AlienGirl riding our AlienBus. I was unhappy because I felt as though I had to live up to impossible standards set by our AlienSociety. I didn't feel as though I could be myself. I would walk home and hear the neighbors whisper about me. They would talk quietly about me not fitting in like the other children. When I was riding the bus, however, I felt as though I was safe from their cruel, silent jabs at me.
Track Three: BeWild.
Flash forward several years later, and I met the first person who ever helped me break down those walls I built as a child. He was a boy, of course. We were wild and youthful. We were raw and honest, full of trust and love.
Or, so I thought.
TrackFour: Pretty Secret.
But all good things soon come to an end, and the AlienBoy eventually began to feel uncomfortable with our commitment level. He suggested we remain a secret to the outside world. Of course, because I was a lovesick space-puppy who would have followed him to the ends of the earth, I said, "Yes."
But there was still something exciting about nobody knowing we existed as a pair. The idea of one day running away together played over and over again in my mind. I had hoped he felt the same way.
I had plans to meet the AlienBoy at a rock show one night. After an hour of searching for him, I found him in the crowd with our friends. When I ran into him however, he was holding another girl. I grew sick with jealousy and rage. I swore he would pay for acting so heartless towards me and for making my feelings invalid.
While making my way through the crowd, a CloakedDevil took my arm and spun me around. He looked me in the eyes and told me he had a cure for my broken heart. Adrenaline pumping through my veins, I knew I would try anything, even from a sketchy man offering me a potion and who could apparently read my mind. Anything to make the ache in my stomach disappear.
The CloakedDevil led me into an empty SpaceShip. He explained that the bottle he was holding was full of a LovePotion, but if I drank it, I would have to be sent far away in order for it to work. He asked once more if I was certain of my choice. I stared into his dark eyes, grabbed the potion out of his hands, and took a gulp of the LovePotion he presented me. Seconds later, I promptly fainted.
The last thing I saw was his long, red fingers pressing a bright green button. Before the ship was sealed shut, my eyes grew heavy and I was left alone in the darkness.
I began to see visions. The same visions I am recalling to you now.
When I started to wake up, I overheard voices standing over me. I opened my eyes, and in front of me was a mirror. I saw myself and immediately all my depression and fear dissolved. Startled, I started to laugh. But, as soon as I did that, the mirror vanished. I realized, the potion wasn't designed to love another being, but it was designed for me to look inside myself. I fell back in love with myself. That would have been nice to know before traveling to a new galaxy.
As I rolled over, a boy was tending to me. He asked me where I came from, and how I arrived on their planet called 'Earth.'
"What is love where you come from?," he said.
I recalled the entire sappy, teenage, angsty story to him. I told him about the AlienBoy who broke my heart and the wild adventures that followed. I knew that I had to let go of the past, and let my AlienBoy free.
Days passed and I was finally able to leave the planet Earth. I prepared my spaceship for my new journey, said goodbye to the boy, and set off. But, not before leaving a memento for him to remember me by...
