Factored fairy tale by Tamara and AbbyOnce upon a time, there was a beautiful goddess with the power to make any man fall for her in an instant, she was named Aphrodite, the goddess of love. When Aphrodite truly fell in love with a man and he fell for her without any magic, they had twin baby girls, Annabelle and Amelia. Several years later when the twins went off to school, Annabelle had trouble making friends while her sister was adored by all, the other children always chose Amelia over her. She heard whispers spoken behind her back and as the years went by these whispers behind her back turned into harsh words said to her face. Her class mates constantly tortured her about her looks, how she was not as pretty as her sister even though they were supposed to be twins and how she couldn't possibly be the daughter of Aphrodite, the most beautiful goddess on mount Olympus. Annabelle already knew what they were telling her, she believed she was as ugly as they all said she was, she thought her nose was too big and her ugly dark gray eyes were too small, her hair was stringy and neck was too long, everything they were saying was true in her eyes and that could never be changed. Annabelle so badly wished that she could be as beautiful as her sister and despite what her mother told her, she knew she was the ugly duckling from a family of beautiful swans.When Annabelle and her sister were older they met Aries, son of Zeus, he was a kind and strong boy who was the god of justice. Annabelle became obsessed with Aries and wanted to be around him constantly, she was sure she was in love with him and all she wanted was to one day marry the boy.

The tales spoke of magic strong enough to cure what were said to be incurable illnesses and so much more, for a price. Annabelle did not fear what this price could be, she was the daughter of the goddess of love and could give the sorcerer almost anything he desired. On the night of a full moon Annabelle traveled through the woods on a long and rough path being guided by only the light of the moon. When she came to a thick wooded area the path cut of and she knew she had reached her destination, she could practically feel the powerful magic lingering in the air. "I have heard stories of an all powerful sorcerer who lives in these parts, I am in desperate need of your help! Show yourself!" Annabelle called into the tightly packed trees. "and how may I be of...
