Prologue

This story begins within the dirty walls of a dungeon, with a birth of a new born girl. With the hair as brown as hazelnut, eyes with the bright shade of green like grass, and a skin white as snow and smooth as silk.

The exhausted mother took a hand out to reach for her daughter, but the royal doctor backed away. "Please, let me see my baby. My beautiful baby.." the mother pleaded.

A soldier came up to the locked doors of the dungeon, "The Royal King Philip is here to talk." he says and opened the locked doors—comes out the king with shining crown and puffy coat along with black long boots.

The King took a sit on the chair beside the mother whose named is Carmela. "Carmela, I am letting you stay with your daughter as long as you wish..but will be ended as one of the servant."

Carmela looked at the King with pleading eyes. But he did not took any pity. "If you don't, might as well take this child away since it is no use of the Royal family and Royal servants." Carmela did nothing but to whimper and sniff.

Silence.. And for the King, silence means yes. "Good. I must give my blessing to your new born girl. And give my best wishes for both of you..until death." those were the most painful words Carmela had ever heard of him.

Even though he was the one who sinned. And was the one who did this to her. His darkest secret.

An Affair with the lovely innocent Maid.

YEARS HAVE PASSED and it goes with the same routine—The King delivers breakfast to them in the morning,supper for supper, and dinner for dinner.

And all Carmela does was to take care of the baby with the supplies the king had gave her. She was somehow happy—that the sinned father was still making sure the baby was safe.

"I shall name her Laura. Laura Olivia."—this was one of her happiest times, naming her beautiful new born child.

"Ma! Look! I made a hat!" the child happily said with her bright shining green eyes looking up at her mother proudly presenting the small little hat she made. It was the size of a head of a stuff toy teddy bear.

"That looks great Olivia!" Carmela smiled at the child sweetly and grabbed the hat, admiring on how she made twists and how she put the ribbon in place. And in her surprise, it was utterly perfect.

Too much of her celebration of the first hand-made hat of the child; she fainted in complete proud and surprise. Laura was used to it, her mother sometimes collapse but regain conciousness sooner or later.

The child helped her mother lay down on the bed they use to sleep at, putting a blanket up to her chest, kissing her forehead before laying down with her mother on the bed—singing and talking of random things.

"Every family has a father, right ma? Then why don't have I? Was i not a daughter of yours? Am i like Jesus who has a ever virgin mother like you? I would like to have a father. But not any father, i would like the one who cares and loves us." The child sighed and giggled once again, putting up her legs in the air and reached for her toes.

"How about you mom? Have you experienced of having a father? It might have been very nice... I want to meet my father soon, ma. I would like to meet my father soon.."she whispered to herself before drifting into a peaceful sleep.

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.

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess . However the way that writter expressed each situatuons that the princess faced quite relevant and keeps the suspense always at the end of the chapter. . . .which makes the reader m...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Jhiane Rabang: The story was so interesting. I loved how the story has plot twists that I can't expect. IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS so I suggest you read this book and I will tell you that it is worth every single second while you read this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...
