*A Beauty and the Beast retelling*

A canvas, that's how I see it

The world 

Crimson paint plasters its edges with lush greenery being set aflame by men of fire.

And at it's center stands a girl with a violin in hand. No weapon at her disposal and no one to rescue her.

 Screams of the desperate engulfed her as gun fire from the heavens pounds against the canvases surface.

Ears ringing

Heart pounding 

She knew 

This was no canvas, this was war

Talented violinist, Valerie Rivington, has been ripped from her poverty stricken village in a war corrupted southern North America. From her brother's protective arms, she is taken by an army so merciless that even the courageous shield their eye's from on looking pistols. For in this world, hero's are phantoms and villains are honored. 

There is no hope in this vacant land.

There are only monsters who twist hearts in hand. 

This talented girl  is not just taken. No it's never that simple, especially in a world that breathes murky lies. Now forced to be a musician for a mysterious ruler called the Whicker, Valerie is faced with nightmares of all creations and choices for heathens. The Whicker is desperate, and desperation can rid a man of any hint of sanity. That is if he even is a man. He's on a hunt for a simple song that could fill the cracks in his broken soul, including the fragments of disease storming through his powerful kingdom. Valerie may have what he's looking for, though it will come with the ultimate price. She must decide, shall it end in love or war?
