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.

The attack

Hadeon stared at the maid with cool, calculating eyes, a subtle smile playing on his lips. "A little birdie told me that something happened during my absence. Why don't you share with me what you shared with Mallory?"

The maid, though staring at the ground, spoke with surprising confidence, "Lord Hadeon, I feel she doesn't belong next to you. She's not even a serphant. She doesn't fit as a human."

Hadeon's fingers tapped rhythmically on the desk, the sound echoing ominously. "Remind me when I gave you the power to decide for me," he said, his voice dangerously smooth. "Perhaps your brain rusted during your recent time in the coffin. Looking to go back inside for good?"

Ivy's confidence wavered, her eyebrows furrowing. "But, milord—"

In an instant, a quill flew across the room, its edge grazing Ivy's cheek and drawing a thin line of blood. She stood in shock, her hand instinctively reaching for the wound.
