All my life, I was used to being hidden by my parents on their farm. I was the child nobody ever knew about, I didn't know if it was because my family wanted to hide me or if they were protecting me. Once my family could no longer afford our lifestyle and our farm, my parents became desperate and made a deal with the prince, who happened to need a wife to become king, but he didn't want her to be corrupted by the idea of wealth. So when he came by my parent's farm to ask for his money and found out that they had a daughter that had been hidden all of her life, he wanted to make a deal. My name is Annabelle. I am sixteen years old and am to marry Damian, the future king of vampires.
