Beauty and the Immortal: It started with a dig

[Mature Content] Some things are best left undisturbed for a reason. Especially ones that are buried in the ground.  Thirteen years after the incident at Winchester Manor, Mallory Winchester resides with her uncle and his family. She is to wed a baron. However, Mallory faces betrayal. Desperate, she sets out looking for the buried artefact that she once believed was a joke told by her grandmother.  But what do you do if you don't find the object, but a person instead? And not just any person, but an immortal being who was never meant to see daylight ever again.  Mallory is convinced that whoever created Hadeon Van Doren must have mixed in generous doses of evil, sadistic nature, and dangerously handsome looks. Now, besides her initial problem, she must find a manual to tame this person who is looking at her as if she is his next meal, as well as tame her.

Disapproval of the maid?

Mallory stood before the mirror in her room, staring at herself while questioning her ability. She tried to do it by herself, but she felt nothing nor did she move to another place. 

"Lady Mallory?" Hattie peeked her head into her room. 

"Come inside, Hattie," Mallory instructed her, turning to look at the door where her maid stood. 

"I was wondering if you would like to have a drink," Hattie inquired. 

"Thank you, Hattie, but that won't be required right now. I will be leaving soon with Hadeon to meet a witch," Mallory informed the young woman, whose eyes slightly widened. 

"Oh! Can you give me two minutes? I have a little work left and I will be ready to leave with you!" Hattie informed her, and this brought a smile to Mallory's lips. 

Mallory placed her hand on Hattie's arm and said, "You don't have to accompany me. You can stay in the castle and help the others. I will be back soon."
