ARROWS is the story of Aaryn, a wayward cupid, and Karma, a ballet prodigy whose destiny is derailed by the power of a single arrow.
Karma didn’t see me the night I made her fall in love. She couldn’t. I was invisible then, not just to her, but to every human.
Chaz and I were on assignment in Lakefield, Wisconsin, population 676. Lakefield, man, what a place. We stood at the back of a dark parking lot, unseen, bows in hand, watching the school in the distance.
I always recognized the small towns by the trees. There, they grew wild, not confined by metal grates stuck into sidewalks. The school was on the corner of two dead streets, a thousand crickets singing to fill the small-town silence.
We were in the country, and bored, and hadn’t followed the pre-assignment protocol. The white folders filled with personal information? Yeah, we hadn’t read those. But that night, like every night, it was our job to decide who was going to fall in love forever.
