Fiction is life,

disguised in words.

Siapa juga yang nggak bakalan melonjak-lonjak kegirangan kalau disodori pilihan untuk liburan musim panas di Paris tanpa orangtua selama dua minggu!

Itu juga yang dilakukan Fay Regina Wiranata—yang baru saja naik ke kelas 3 SMA—ketika orangtuanya memberitahukan dia sudah didaftarkan untuk kursus bahasa Prancis selama dua minggu di Paris.
 
Namun, setelah menginjakkan kaki di kota Paris, kegembiraan Fay berubah seketika; ia diculik oleh seorang pria yang memintanya berpura-pura menjadi seorang gadis Malaysia bernama Seena. Sejak itu, Fay menjalani kehidupan ganda selama dua minggu: kursus bahasa di pagi hari dan latihan menjadi Seena di sore hari.
 
Masalah mulai muncul ketika Fay jatuh cinta pada Kent, seorang pemuda asal Inggris yang juga keponakan si penculik. Hidup Fay juga makin runyam, ketika muncul Reno, teman kursusnya yang secara terang-terangan menentang hubungannya dengan Kent.
Seperti apa hubungan Fay dengan Kent? Apa yang terjadi saat Fay melakukan tugasnya dengan berlakon menjadi Seena? Apa sebenarnya yang diinginkan oleh penculiknya?

Eiffel, Tolong!

from paris to eternity

traces of love

Who wouldn't leap in joy when given the choice of spending two weeks learning French in Paris, alone? Obviously everyone would. And Fay was in it, too. She just finished her second year in highschool and was thrilled to spend her summer vacation in Paris.
 
But as soon as she set her foot on Paris, her dream holiday turned into a nightmare—she was kidnapped by a man, who then instructed her to pose as a Malaysian girl named Seena.
 
Her double life then began. In the morning, she attended the class as usual, but in the afternoon she went through some trainings, given by her kidnapper, Andrew McGallaghan.
 
Problem started when she fell in love with Andrew’s nephew, Kent. It even got more complicated when one of her classmates, Reno, tried to shadow her every move with Kent.
 
When the time had come to act as Seena and fooled Andrew’s competitor, everyhing went perfect except for one thing: the real Seena showed up. The operation was jeopardized and so was Fay’s life.

Setelah menyelesaikan “tugas” dari Andrew McGallaghan, Fay Regina Wiranata kembali ke Indonesia, kembali menjadi siswa SMA biasa. Tak secuil pun kisah serunya di Paris ia bocorkan kepada sahabat-sahabat dan orangtuanya.

 

Fay hampir yakin kehidupannya akan berjalan normal seperti biasa. Namun, ia mendapat kejutan lain yang mau tak mau menyeretnya kembali ke peristiwa di Paris: ia menjadi juara lomba mengarang berbahasa Prancis dengan hadiah kursus singkat selama satu minggu di Paris!

 

Yakin dirinya tidak pernah mengikuti lomba yang dimaksud, tambahan lagi berita itu disampaikan oleh Institute de Paris yang merupakan kedok penculiknya tahun lalu, Fay tahu ia tidak punya pilihan lain kecuali berangkat ke Paris memenuhi panggilan Andrew.

Hari-harinya ternyata berjalan lebih berat daripada yang ia sangka. Selain mendapatkan pengawasan dari rekan Andrew bernama Philippe Klaan yang sikapnya sangat tidak bersahabat, Fay juga harus menata kembali perasaannya kepada Kent, juga Reno.

 

Selesai melaksanakan tugas, hidup memberikan kejutan lain yang amat mengguncang Fay: pesawat yang ditumpangi kedua orangtuanya mengalami kecelakaan dan orangtuanya dikabarkan meninggal dunia. Fay harus membuat keputusan terberat dalam hidupnya: tetap di Jakarta dengan ketidakpastian akan masa depan, atau pergi ke Paris demi sebuah kepastian masa depan namun sekaligus membuatnya terpuruk sepanjang masa.

After completing her mission, Fay returned to Indonesia and became just like any other ordinary teenage girl. She didn't mention a single thing about her previous adventure to her friends nor her parents.
 
She was convinced her life had returned to normal, until one day she received a letter stating that she had won first prize for her participation in a writing competition during her French course in Paris the previous year. The first problem with that news was that she never participated in that competition. The second problem was that the institution that sent the letter was the same institution with the one her kidnapper used last year.
 
Fay returned to Paris and went through rigorous training that would prepare her for another mission Andrew McGallaghan had set for her.
 
After the mission was completed, life gave another unexpected turn: Fay’s parents were killed in a plane crash.
 
Fay had to make the most difficult decision in her life: returned to Jakarta and face the uncertainty of the future without her parents, or accepted Andrew’s offer and entered the dark side that she never knew existed.

A month had passed after Fay was accepted to the McGallaghan family.
 
In an almost-perfect life at the McGallaghan castle in Paris, Fay was struggling with her sadness over the loss of her parents while trying to adapt with the other members of the family, including Kent and Reno. At the same time, Fay started to get closer with Enrique Davalos, the Venezuelan guy whom she had previously met.
 
After her 18th birthday, Fay’s uncle Andrew McGallaghan decided that her mourning time was over. Fay was introduced to the intricate life of a McGallaghan, which includes the private intelligent operations under COU or Core Operation Unit.
 
As Fay’s relationship with Enrique was building up, Kent and Reno were shadowing her, each with their own reasons. For Fay, everything was perfect, until her uncle, Andrew McGallaghan, started to play his cards.
 
Fay was faced with two options: following her uncle’s orders with the risk of sacrificing her feeling, or trusting her heart with the risk of facing her uncle’s rage.

Sebulan telah lewat sejak Fay diterima menjadi anggota keluarga McGallaghan.


Lewat kehidupan yang nyaris sempurna di kastil McGallaghan di Paris, Fay berjuang melalui kesedihan akibat kehilangan kedua orangtuanya, sembari mencoba beradaptasi dengan anggota keluarga yang lain, termasuk Kent dan Reno. Di saat yang bersamaan, Fay menjalin komunikasi dengan Enrique Davalos, cowok keren berambut cepak asal Venezuela yang dikenalnya di cafe.

 

Setelah ulang tahun Fay yang kedelapan belas yang dirayakan dengan jamuan megah, pamannya, Andrew McGallaghan, menyatakan bahwa masa berkabung Fay telah usai. Fay pun diarahkan untuk mengetahui seluk-beluk keluarga secara lebih dalam, termasuk mengenal Core Operation Unit (COU), badan intelijen di bawah naungan keluarga McGallaghan.

 

Sejalan dengan waktu, hubungan antara Fay dan Enrique terjalin semakin erat—Kent dan Reno membayangi gerak-gerik Fay, masing-masing dengan alasan tersendiri. Bagi Fay, hubungannya dengan Enrique berjalan sempurna, hingga Andrew McGallaghan mulai memainkan kartunya satu demi satu.

 

Fay pun dihadapkan pada dua pilihan: mengikuti perintah pamannya dengan mengorbankan perasaannya, atau mendahulukan perasaannya dan menghadapi kemarahan pamannya.
