The Devil I Know

Awkward and prone to overthinking, Rin has always struggled socially. It doesn't help that her white hair tends to draw attention. That said, one night on the train she sees a sight even more unusual than herself. A girl with horns.

Her name is Evi. At least, that's the only name she's willing to give right now. Blunt, enigmatic, and heavily insistent that she is a normal human, Evi is a new transfer to their school. Could Rin finally have a friend that understands her? Well... she might get more than she bargained for.

Sometimes mundane, sometimes surreal, sometimes supernatural. Join these two on a journey through life's daily tribulations, as they attempt to navigate love, growth, and self-acceptance.

Hello! And thank you for reading my web novel. This is my first time writing one, I hope you like it. Updates should come out at least once a week. I might do more if possible, but no promises. I've also including some art I drew for this story in the Novel Showcase section. Just some character portraits, feel free to check them out.

This is a submission for the 2022 MAL x Honeyfeed writing contest.
