Everybody was different for a reason, but I never would have guessed that my reason was him.
As the princess of Lumaria I was always expected to act as such, but not even the heavy fabric of the fancy gowns and the excessive sparkle of the expensive jewels could hide the fact that I looked nothing like a Lumarian. Where people of the kingdom normally had light hair, light eyes, and light skin, I had dark everything.
