Beautiful

Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

I was beautiful once.

You might not believe now but at one time I was beautiful.

With flowing chestnut hair and porcelain skin, ruby red lips and emerald eyes.

Strong yet Feminine.

I was beautiful.

When I walked into a room everyone would stop, they would stare.

Everything I wanted was mine, all I had to do was ask. Men and women alike, fell at my feet- why? Because I was beautiful then, I was what everyone wished to be like.

Nothing was a challenge, I had to work for nothing. No one understood me, I was beautiful, what else was there?

I could do no wrong, no matter how hard I tried. And believe me, I tried, but instead of correcting me, my wrong way became the new "right" way.

I was beautiful, that says it all.

In this world that's all mattered, the world was mine to take.

Nothing was kept from me

My life was perfect they said

Except that I hated it

All of it

I didn't want everything, I didn't want money or power, I didn't want life to be easy.

I wanted to work for what I wanted.

I didn't want to be beautiful, I hated it.

I didn't want to be the center of attention.

I hated how I could do no wrong in their eyes

I wasn't a goddess

I wasn't perfect

I was just…

Beautiful

They all seemed to worship me, to pray to me- as if I could answer their prayers, as if I could fulfill their dreams. Likes somehow my beauty could make all their wishes come to life as if I had some unheard of power. I sighed, I had what most people dreamed of- money, power, beauty but I would have gladly given it all up just to be normal, to have to struggle through life like everyone else. I was not happy, I just walked through life surrounded by my "followers"- if I wanted something I just had to reach out my hand and someone gave it to me. That's not what I wanted, why did they have to set me apart?

I wanted to have something to work for, I wanted to have to try. But I never had to try, not at anything

...until him.

That was how it all began, he gave me a taste of the "real world", a taste of what my life could have been.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

bhodges11: I like the concept of the story, but there were things that I felt could use more detail. I like the back stories created, but was left wanting more from parts of the story.
