I was born in a world full of tragedy; no it was not the tragedy of war, nor was it a tragedy of poverty; no, in that life I had no love nor honesty. Fallacies replaced everything I loved and everything that was once true had been ripped away from me and torn into pieces. I had trusted all the wrong people when I was a young girl, and for years I stayed locked away in a tower where the only person to comfort me was the little girl who stared back at me through the glass, it was quite depressing now that I think back to it — I was only able to speak to my own reflection. Maybe tragedy was too strong of a word to describe my life… After all, I never was a happy child, so I should never have expected to live a happy life. It had been an epoch of experience, where I learned to trust no one, that no matter who I dared get close too, they would all betray me. Years of trust were thrown away in mere seconds of time, as if someone just rolled a die, and everything changed.
Life was a game to me where no one knew the rules, and the common players like you and I were left to our own devices, whether it be helping each other or causing each other’s demise. And, you may be asking me now, “Why are you speaking in the past tense?” Well, because I am. I am, unfortunately, dead. Yes, yes, this lady that randomly found you and is now talking to you like a mad woman is dead, and no I am not insane. I woke up like this, I swear.
Proserpina Anna Rose De La Vert was a woman born for the crown, and in her first life she was used for the crown — as a key to the throne, a bearer for heirs, and a punching bag for those who only desired power. In her final moments she took revenge for all the torment she faced after being locked away in a tower for years whilst being separated from the child that she had just given birth to. Unfortunately, her life ended shortly after, but she did not actually die.
Proserpina awakes in the body of her child self to discover that time has been rewound, she has been reborn, and she has been given a second chance at life. She has been given a second chance at love, a second chance at the crown, a second chance to fulfill her revenge…
