Prologue

Once upon a time, in a whimsical far away world, lived two highly esteemed aristocrats. They had a wonderful reputation and a luxurious home near the outskirts of town. They were, by far, the most beautiful couple in all the land and their daughter was the spitting image of their parents beauty. They named their gorgeous daughter, Summer. And everything in their lives was absolutely perfect until a little less than a decade later when their second daughter was born.

Her name was Luna and there wasn't really anything wrong with her. She was not cursed, handicap or ugly in any way. In fact, it was quite the contrary, Luna was actually surprisingly healthy, her features were flawless, and she had been born just as beautiful as her parents. But there was one "error" in Luna that would alter the value of her life. You see, Luna was fat.

Seriously, that's it? Just fat? So then why is this such a big deal? Well, Luna's mother and father were... Perfectionist. They achieved their status through flaunting their beauty and pointing out flaws in other people. So as beautiful as Luna actually was there was nothing they could do to make her as slim and "presentable" as her older sister.

To the couple, Luna being born a few pounds overweight was the equivalent of an omen. It may seem petty to you, but an imperfect birth was absolutely horrifying to them. And so, through a process of somewhat questionable means, the couple somehow managed to pass her birth off as a miscarriage. But not all hope was lost, they were totally prepared to shock the world and take their daughter out of the shadows... But that would only come to pass if Luna could lose the weight.

And for twelve long years, poor Luna worked very hard to do it with hopes that she too could somehow become presentable enough for the outside world. Everyday she imagined herself attaining that dream weight and her celebrity parents proudly presenting her in a big beautiful dress for the whole world to see. But, to Luna's despair, it was not to be. 

The family had tried everything under the sun. They made her exercise, had her on diets, and if it wasn't deadly they might have resorted to starving the poor girl. Either way, it still was not enough to make her fit into the model frame. 

As a last resort, the couple got desperate and on her thirteenth birthday, they had pushed her into binge eating and when young Luna became ill, they had finally decided to give up on her entirely. There was no way around it. Luna was fat and It was absolutely horrid that her happiness and chance for a good life was contingent on losing weight. It was the most painful moment of her life because she believed that it was her fault. 

The parents did not want an imperfect daughter and it was too late to abort their twelve year old daughter. That obviously left her parents with no choice but to put poor Luna and all of her belongings in the basement. This is where our story begins. In the darkness of the family basement. That is going to be the place Luna would remain until her eighteenth birthday.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Dinzy: I actually liked it although I did not find it fit to be a horror story at all. It was a lot more mystery and fantasy than horror but it was very interesting and a good read.

Dinzy: I enjoyed this story. It did not feel like a horror to me rather than a thriller/ fantasy mostly but it was great. I did not expect it to end like that. Although that is also a nice ending. It is a really great story if you are interested in reading a fantasy that makes you stay at the edge of yo...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Alice Liu: Whoa! I've been wondering how would the Maurauders react to Harry's life and here we go! YOU ARE THE BEST! All the characters are consistent with their personalities shown in the book!

Madison O'Neal: Although the book may be good the grammar is horrid and it's hard to concentrate on the story when having to correct the mistakes of the author I suggest the author go back and correct things to improve the enjoyment of the book overall and the app should proof read things before they are publish...

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren
