Valerie's Rest [Family_Friendly] [Heartwarming]

#1 Post by Plotline_Progenitor » Wed Nov 08, 2017 1:51 am

Introduction
"In the peaceful little town of Valerie's Rest people lived a simple life. Despite the advances in technology people would still write letters, picnics were common on the weekends, and people thought of strangers as friends they hadn't met yet"

"But the people of Valerie's rest would tell strange stories now and then about a kindhearted young lady accompanied by a talking bird, some would even claim the girl herself had wings"

"As it turns out... they weren't just stories"


Valerie's rest is a very short kinetic novel about a few people in a small town who encounter an angel girl who helps them with some kind of problem that they face. It's meant to be a short sweet family friendly story that leaves you feeling good inside.

The first story "Scripts & Dreams" may be only the first in a series of free short visual novels.

This particular story is about the efforts of Meilu (the angel) to help a young man retrieve a script from the all girl high school his sweetheart used to attend which they worked on together, along the way she befriends and restores the confidence of a young girl to submit her script to the same contest they did all those years ago.
