FOR THE GHASTLY AND BEAUTIFUL
April 24, 2022
I was a catastrophe waiting to happen—I always had been.
But I didn’t recognize the force of my storm… how my reckless decisions shaped me into exactly what I needed to be.
This new world is full of dangers, though they aren’t what I first feared. Lurking beasts and hidden monsters still wait for me in the shadows, and I don’t expect that to change.
As I settle into calling Spiran my home, I find that her intentions run deeper than not letting me leave.
I’m drowning in a sea of unpredictable emotions, riding the waves of intuition and suspicion.
My dreams of happiness take an abrupt left turn when I catch myself falling.
These Mongrel men will learn that my racing heart makes me a wild card.
My name is Ada Stormbrave.
But they’ll call me the Mongrel Queen.
