Meet Chalera Pickins, local San Myshuno singer
She came to San Myshuno with one dream: to be heard. Chalera had steadily built a name for herself among the locals and her fame and respect grew with each performance.
At the Festival of Love
The only thing about Chalera that seemed stagnant was her love life. Being well known and respected in her town made it hard for Chalera to determine who was genuinely interested in her and those with selfish intentions.
Chalera had hoped that a trip to the annual Festival of Love would change things for her.
After the love-guru’s unfavorable response, Chalera decided to rid her mind of thoughts about finding love and just entertain her fans and go home.
But when she got home, the unexpected happened…
Seeing that strange man in her apartment made her panic. What happened next was a blur…
It turned out that the man’s name was Chris Pickens, which is pronounced the same as Chalera’s surname, Pickins. After realizing the confusion, Chalera immediately regretted what she had done to him. She felt worse when he told her he was a model.
Since then, Chris became her roommate and despite the circumstances in which they met, a friendship blossomed.
After the early-morning awkwardness, Chalera thought it would be best to focus on her music and avoid having another awkward encounter with Chris.
The attraction between Chris and Chalera was obvious but neither one of them would make the first move. In the weeks that followed, Chris grew closer to Chalera. He attended all her show rehearsals until the night of the concert.
The concert was a major success for Chalera and those who attended were eager to get a piece of her. But before attending to the crowd, Chalera wanted to celebrate with her new friend, Chris.
Later that night, Chalera and Chris returned to the apartment.
Seeing that the lights wouldn’t be returning any time soon, Chris and Chalera got cozy in front of the fireplace.
It wasn’t clear where their relationship was going. The only thing that was certain was that the attraction was strong and things were escalating every day.
As Chalera’s popularity grew, it became clear that she had outgrown her neighborhood, judging from the number of uninvited guests outside her apartment building. It was time to move.
All seemed to be going well for Chalera, too well, which made her anxious.
