Sage is what her mother calls a dreamer:  she believes in magic,  true love, and happy endings. Unfortunately for Sage, her mother is determined to crush her dreams. 

Sage's father died suddenly six months prior to her 18th birthday. Her family struggling financially, her Mother surprises Sage with a ball to celebrate her birthday. But she also receives the unwanted present of a courtship to a very rich and vain man. Sage becomes upset because she thought she'd marry a man she loves. The problem is: she could never love a man as horrid as her betrothed. 

Just when Sage is about to give up all hope, a hidden world reveals itself to her. It offers her a temporary escape from the her life, and she meets a man who feels just as trapped as she is. As she learns more about him and his fate, she discovers that her life has always been full of secrets and magic, and in the end, she might just save herself.

Great detail. I like that you make Sage sound so flippant during most of the dialogue, but she has very deep and philosophical thoughts.
Okay, so I finished this story recently, and I’m about to binge vote it. Get prepared for a load of notifications, and sorry in advance lol xD

The story description made it sound like a 12 dancing princesses retelling. I dont know if it is but I am indeed intrigued

This is a great start to the story and it leaves an undercurrent of suspense in the reader moving on to the next chapter. Who is the sorceress and what is her attachment to the couple and the fountain? Who is the couple and the person who watches the sorceress?

Sage's father sounds like a wonderful man. Your descriptions are wonderful!

I think all mothers judge their daughters, to some extent. Most don't do it to be cruel, but so that their daughters will be better.
