For the first time ever on Redecor – an interactive love story is about to take place!

Lucas and Mia have been together for five years. They’re a picture-perfect couple – on the outside. Inside… the cracks are starting to show. In order to decide if they should stay together or not, the two are traveling on a beautiful Mediterranean cruise. Will this shared voyage rejuvenate their relationship? Or will this finally break them? Follow along as this Season unravels their story.

And there’s more – this season, YOU have the power to shape the tale! Here’s the scoop: Each room within the story will feature a rose. The brief will explicitly present the choices at hand, with red indicating one option and white denoting another. By coloring the rose either red or white, you dictate the ensuing events! After you’ve submitted your Design, a pop-up will emerge, revealing the rest of the chapter in line with your choice.

In this blog article, we’ll include the chapter summaries so you can follow the story at any time.

What will you decide? How will the story end?

All aboard the cruise ship! We’re about to set sail.

Here are the chapter dates:

Chapter 1: 6th of September

Lucas tries to grab my hand as we enter our cabin. “Hey”, he says, “Can you at least pretend to have fun? We’re on a trip of a lifetime here.” 

We’d fought the whole way over. Some apology! I nod stiffly, making it look like I’m busy unpacking our bags. I can almost hear him shrug as he says, “I’ll be at the bar.” 

A moment goes by before I see it. Tucked inside his suitcase is a small velvet box from my favorite jeweler. Is…is Lucas going to propose? 

Chapter 2: 10th of September

Friendly as ever, Lucas strikes up a conversation with a wealthy-looking man and his girlfriend – Mathew and Monique. Soon enough, we all move to a fancy restaurant on the shore. 
I wonder if Lucas just doesn’t want to be alone with me. I reach for my drink absentmindedly, but the glass topples over, spilling all over my dress and splashing Monique. Lucas’s eyes flash with anger. 
“I’m sorry, I can’t take her anywhere nice!” he says to Mathew, offering Monique his napkin. 
Fighting back tears, I manage to apologize to Monique, who simply smiles, squeezes my hand reassuringly and says, “Don’t worry about it”. 

Chapter 3: 14th of September

Lucas had organized a picnic for us, overlooking the hot air balloon fair. Although he’d apologized profusely for his harsh words over the last few days, something still doesn’t feel right. I wonder if I would ever be able to forgive him. As we admire the beautiful scenery in complete awkward silence, I catch something in the corner of my eye. When I turn over, Lucas is down on one knee holding the ring box in his hand. “Mia Rebecca Smith,” he says, “Will you marry me?”

Chapter 4: 18th of September

Despite my bruised ego, I get my cell phone out and stare at it. No missed calls, no new messages.
I know I crossed a line with how I reacted during our outing. I can’t get the hurt look on her face out of my mind. But is this it? Is Mia really serious about rejecting my proposal?
I can prove to her that I can change. After all, everyone has their moments, right? It’s this thought that makes me unlock my phone screen and dial her number.

Chapter 5: 22nd of September

I’ve come to terms with my decision. It wasn’t easy, but freeing in a way. Like that knot in my stomach had somehow loosened. “Lucas, I invited you here tonight, because I need to let you know how I feel about us.”
Lucas’ face lights up with hope, and that saddens me. How could he still believe this could work?

“I don’t want to be in this relationship anymore.” My voice sounds measured and calm, although inside my heart is pounding.

“Lucas’ eyes become damp as he sucks in a breath. “I’ll change,” he promises quickly, blinking against the tears. “I’ll do anything -”

I hold a hand up to stop him. “I don’t need you to do anything,” I say softly. “I’m sorry Lucas, this isn’t going to work.” It’s the most difficult decision I’ve made in a long time – a sad, but necessary one. This is really goodbye.

Chapter 6: 26th of September

I’ve gotten so used to being together with Lucas that being by myself was kind of jarring. Once I had some time to myself, a picnic in the perfect scenery of Italy just seemed like the right answer.

I’d always imagined being on my own would be lonely. Surprisingly, I find I like it. I lift my arms up to my sides and take a deep, freeing breath. I’m going to be okay. I’m going to make it out of this breakup stronger than ever. I’m not alone anymore – I have me.

Chapter 7: 29th of September

I still have time to call and cancel. So what if I’m already seated in the restaurant? I think while sliding a loose strand of hair nervously behind my ear.

I shouldn’t even be dating again yet! But Brian was so nice and sweet when he came up to me in the hotel lobby, that I practically melted away and gave him my number.

Besides, it’s not a total waste of time! With him being a history professor in town for a guest appearance at the local university, the conversation has to at least be interesting, right?

I bite down on my lower lip. They say a new love heals the hurt from the last one… Should I stay?

Chapter 8: 30th of September

It’s almost time to go home. I lean back, trying to soak up the last of the peaceful Mediterranean sun before I have to face real life again. Kayla, my best friend, has swung by and gotten my stuff out of Lucas’s apartment, and she promised me I can crash on her couch until I figure out what I want to do next. It’s an exciting thought – getting to truly decide what I want to do next. It hadn’t felt like my choice for the last five years, not really.

I’d been so nervous about going through this breakup with Lucas, but it turns out that our fears have a wonderful tendency to shrink in the light of day.

For once, I’m not nervous or uneasy about coming back home from a trip. I’m excited about what the future has in store for me. I’m excited to be me.

Color the rose, red or white, according to your preference. Mia has already made up her mind!
