Missunderstanding: Fate Looked Back by Vera Schneider and Bevin Smith Review

Author Information

Bevin Smith had always been writing. Her drawers are full of paper sheets covered in different inks. A library worth of paper to reach the dream effect- a book. Her pen produces stories full of lively descriptions, which would run wild if not contained within the bounds of the page. Bevin’s inspiration comes from the dusk when all her daily thoughts and ideas are put in a proper line, waiting to be transferred onto paper. Sounds around only assist her with forming the stories since, in her opinion, beautiful things are born noisily. Future aim? …

Vera has begun her writing adventure relatively recently. Her goals in life were completely different, but then it happened; the mind’s fantasies demanded to be captured on paper. An integral part of her writing is the picturesque language which is used to stimulate the reader’s imagination. Vera’s inspiration comes from the dawn, the best time of day to reach for a pen. The process of creating requires total silence since, in her opinion, beautiful things are born quietly. Future aim? …

Together Two completely different persons have connected. But… they have never seen each other in person. Even more, they have never spoken to each other. Then how? How did it start? The Internet was so generous to let them find each other. They met here, online. Among the millions of users, their IP addresses linked up to detect similarities. Two completely different persons melded with the same interest: writing. And then the exchange of words began. A small trickle became a stream, and then a river, and finally an ocean of letters forming words. When the sun rises, Vera writes. When the sun goes down, Bevin takes over. Work put in unceasing motion so the books could come to light. Silence and noise are joined to create a perfect symphony.

Future aim? You, the reader.

I got this short story from the authors in exchange for my honest review.

Review

I meant for this post to go live on Thursday of last week but just realized I scheduled it incorrectly.

Thoughts and Themes: This is a short story that follows two men who are a part of the entertainment industry. This story is part of a series “Missunderstanding” and it focuses on the troubles that Kenta has come across due to his love affairs. Kenta gets assaulted early on in the story which leaves him feeling worthless and undeserving of love and care. It isn’t until Yuta shows him friendship and ultimately love and care that he realizes that he too deserves to be loved and cared for.

This story quickly grabbed my attention and I was so sad when it was over as I wanted to read more about these two characters. I liked that this story didn’t feel like it was rushed through and that it didn’t feel like the only goal was to get to the end of it. I liked reading about the dynamics between both Kenta and Yuta and how much Yuta cares about everyone he comes into contact with. I did think that the relationship portion with his boss was a little out of place but I also think that is due to not having read the rest of this series.

Characters: This story consisted of two main characters, Kenta and Yuta, and one side character who was both of their bosses, and Kenta’s girlfriend. I thought that the two main characters were nice and I wanted to read more about them, learn about their backgrounds, etc.
