When Beauty Saved Beast
Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite Disney movie, so I thought I would write a modern, twisted version of it ;). Hope you like it
Katherine was born into one of the leading Mafia families in New York, the Gravano's. Kat has had no say in her future, everything was decided for her. Her world was full on blood and war. No one was safe, no one to be trusted. Katherine's father is the Big Man of the family and he's hungry for power, more power. He wants to unite with the most dangerously powerful family.
Her father agreed to hand Katherine over to Adam. He's the heir to his Mafia family from Chicago, the DeSimone's.
When Adam was 5, he was kidnapped and tortured to the brink of death. He is left with scars to mark his body. People turn their heads when he passes by, the flinch when he looks at them, and scurry to the other side of the the street when he walks by. He was never shown any affection of love. I guess that's hard to come by when its considered as weak in a Mafia family.
Katherine accepted her faith, being married to a man who killed with his bare hands when he was 15. But she's willing to make the best of the situation. She doesn't expect love. She doesn't expect care. But she wants to be civil. Is that so much to ask for?
Katherine wanted civil, but she might have gotten more than she bargained for. For better? Or for worse?
