I'm Adelaide Silvers and today is the day I've dreaded for years. Its my birthday. Long ago my mom told me that all twenty year old men and women go to a royal ball hosted every year in December. Why, you might ask? Because of the possibility of us being mated to Vampires, Werewolves, Fairies, or Angels. That's right. The possibility. Hopefully I'm not mated. I can't fathom the idea of somebody thinking they own me, or me owning them. Who cares about all this mated fate bullshit anyway? I'm just an ordinary girl. If I end up mated to someone, I would just be a disappointment to them. Adelaide is a girl intent on leading her own life and controlling her own destiny. Join her on this journey where she learns about her past and tries to conquer her fears of her future. --------------------------------- Hey! I hope you enjoy my story, I'm a bit newer at writing so go through this journey with me!
