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.

As Mallory and Hadeon left the vampire's lair and arrived in Reavermoure, she couldn't help but notice the familiar faces and her own wanted posters adorning the walls. She muttered, "I should probably paint the walls in the middle of the night when everyone is asleep."

"Brilliant idea! All we need to do is find some human sacrifice, and we are set to colour Reavermoure," Hadeon suggested with a wicked gleam in his eye.

Mallory's eyes widened, and she replied, "I didn't mean it quite like that, Master Hades..."

As the carriage came to a halt and they stepped out, Hadeon casually asked, "Feel like kicking some rocks, monkey?"

Confused, Mallory followed his gaze and gasped as she saw her once grand manor reduced to a pile of rubble. "My house... How—Who could have done this?" she exclaimed, disbelief evident in her voice.
