The Divinity of Anila
The Musings Book 1
by Cloud S. Riser
YA Paranormal

--My name is Anila. Up until a few days ago, I thought I was just like
every other teenage girl. Seriously, life was awesome. I was popular,
had great grades, and was on my way to getting a scholarship to one
of the top universities in the state. Then my boyfriend decided to go
crazy on me, and I end up in a car with some other guy who claims
magic is real. Crazy, is what I say. Pretty sure he's out of his
mind. I--

--Hold on a minute, Nila is not giving me a fair chance. The name is Bailey,
and I'm not crazy. I'm a Muse. And so is she. That's why her
boyfriend got uber possessive on her. Muses inspire the best in
others, and without control over their magic, a Muse can be pretty
addictive to hang around.

Which is why I'm here, to teach Nila how to control that magic so she
doesn't cause any more problems with the every day humans. See--

--I hate how he says every day humans like I'm not one of them. Oh, and
get this, I apparently can't touch him, even just a tiny bit, because
we might create magical sparks...or something?--

--Look at all the things she doesn't know about being a Muse. The sparks
help us find our soul mate. Do I need to explain why I don't need her
touching me right now? We just met. Besides, it's common courtesy.
Keep your hands to yourself.

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!
I happen to be fortunate enough to live in an area where there are a number of celebrity appearances. A while back, I decided there’s no point in denying myself the opportunity to see some of these people regardless of if I’m a super fan or not. I find celebrity culture fascinating since famous people are just as human as we are, right? So here’s a list of people I’ve interacted with:
·         Big Time Rush (twice): handshakes and me saying really stupid stuff all around. You say you won’t get star struck and you inevitably do.
·         The cast of Victorious: definitely all super sweet and fun people. Also very real.
·         The cast of Degrassi the Next Generation: my funny story for this is I was with my eldest who was a toddler at the time. The girls were all gushy over him while the guys were very confused as to what to do with a baby.
·         Zac Efron: We held eye contact for five seconds and he waved at me in response to my waving to him. Side note: he is short and skinny. They say if you see a person, they’ll later show up in your dreams, so I sure hope this is true. :P
·         Arnold Schwarzenegger: Filmed a scene and then chilled with a cigar. Didn’t get very close, but he was also not as big of a guy as it seems.
·         Joe from Blue’s Clues: saw him in a play. We arrived early and saw him rehearsing in the park over lunch.
·         For King and Country: met the lead singer before a concert. Got a picture with the kids who are super fans.

I’m sure I’m missing a few, and it might sound silly, but it was a lot of fun. It also might be research for future projects. You’ll just have to stay tuned.
