Prologue

Everyone has a what if feeling. That moment that makes you question where you would be if you didn’t do that thing, go to that place, meet that person. Everyone has a what if. Some people know exactly where that moment, that feeling is from. Others only know the insatiable fear, the unquenchable longing of knowing things could be different. I’m one of those who are lucky [cursed] enough to know exactly what that moment is.

My what if, was the fall.

They say that if ‘you fall as Lucifer fell, you fall from grace’. Although I have been led to believe that perhaps it is the other way around. My fall was neither grand nor dramatic.

If this were any other tale I would start from the beginning, from the ashes. I would tell you of a young orphaned princess and her evil uncle, for isn’t that how all fairytales begin. But this is not a fairytale of fantasy, more a non-fictional tale of fairies. And as every reader knows: stories don’t end on the last page, no more than they begin on the first.
