    Summary

    Psyche had been taught love, now it was time for her lesson in pain.

    After striking a deal with the goddess Aphrodite, Psyche completed her three tasks to earn the right to speak to her God husband, Eros once more. But the chance was taken from her the moment Aphrodite caught her cheating and Psyche was forced to turn from the temple and away from her husband.

    Left to wander the world alone for an eternity, Psyche vows to make the best of a bad situation. With the help from an unlikely source, she finds herself moving on in life as she leaves behind her royal past for the future of a common individual and soon her pain just becomes another familiar friend.

    It isn't until her world is completely upsided by the arrival of her husband, Eros, who claims he had been searching for her for the last several thousand years and the painful memories slowly resurface. Will Eros find out the ugly truth of Psyche's punishment? And will she be able to reveal over two thousand years worth of secrets?

    A modern telling of what happens after Psyche completes the trials set by Aphrodite and veers completely away from the original ending of the myth. Features other myths and legends as well!

    Summary

    Arya has no idea why he offered her to come with him, or why she agreed on it so eagerly. The only thing she gets to know, is that in a house of a Faceless Assassin, where everything is either black or white, the shades sometimes blend, creating a gray area full of uncertainties. That sometimes to learn who you really are, first you have to become No One. In the end it doesn't matter; a broken, lonely girl or a ruthless hitman - they both might be just the same.
