Aubrey and Alexis are about to become step sisters. Aubrey's mother is marrying Alexis's father in less than a year. With the parents insisting on combining households, Aubrey feels like she is going through hell. Aubrey was pure sweetness. Her skin color was honey, she had thick but soft hair, and a curvy frame. She's taken out of her junior year in high school and away from her closest friends. Aubrey's relationship with her boyfriend Mike is put on rocks and it's all because of her soon-to-be step sister, Alexis.
Alexis has always been into girls. She acted like a boy, walked like a boy, and somewhat dressed like a boy. She certainly didn't look like one. Alexis was beautiful. Her body was toned, due to the constant basketball games she played on the court with her group of friends. She also had every gay girl wanting her. The straight girls stared too. Her hair was long, eyes were big and hazel, and her skin was chocolate. Alexis could care less about them, she wanted Aubrey.
1923. Nothing is as it seems, in this world of deception, in this world of tricks.
"I didn't want to give the suspicion a way into me, but it wasn't my call to make."
Our life was not to be compared with any other, and we were the happiest people we knew, or at least we thought so. But it's funny how things can take a different turn with a flick of a finger.
"You can burn years away doing nothing, but there's beauty in that nothing because it's only a canvas."
「TIME CHANGES EVERYTHING」takes us all the way back to 2008, where skinny jeans, heavy music, and colored hair were abundant. This is where we meet the humble beginnings of Playing With Fire, who are stuck in a seemingly constant carousel of changing members with the exceptions of the brazenly eccentric Erin Edgars and perpetual womanizer Noah Haley.
Along with the duo that kept Playing with Fire glued together, we meet the complicated Mathew "Matty" Cullen, the talented guitarist and vocalist for the rapidly-ascending Hollower.
Then there was the key that brought together all three of the musicians. The formerly homeless, skateboard-wielding Alessa Howard. After a string of events at home, Alessa is all but left alone on the streets. While resorting to the only option she had to fill her stomach, she unwittingly follows the talented Mathew Cullen into the world of music, where she not only discovers her passion, but meets another few specials friends - and more.
But what happens when tragedy strikes the band?
Will they fall apart, or will they come back stronger than before? How will Alessa handle herself when her demons start returning to shore, will she trying to bury them again or will she face them head on? What will Alessa do when life decides to throw her another curveball, will she reject that curveball or will she accept it with open arms? Will time heal their wounds?
Can time truly change everything?
