The Dreaming Sea
Teru is a young man from a wealthy family who while bright, has not been much farther than the plantation his family owned. He fell deeply in love with the gorgeous Nadia and convince his father to approach her family with an offer of marriage. They met several times and each time he fell deeper in love.
The last night they met, she came to him at night. She told him he was a too good for the plantation he grew up on. To just to oversee slaves and too generous to amass wealth. They spent the night together and by morning she had disappeared.
He soon found that Nadia had mysteriously died the day before, just before arriving at his home.
Unsettled by his experience he fled his family and plantation, looking for answers and purpose.
