^^Beware My Name^^
The dreams, the nightmares, they hound me whilst I sleep. The torment, the pain, it burrows way down deep… deep, deep down within the soul I’ve been destined not to have. The black hole I have been so cursed, so unfortunate to possess.
The blood lust. Can I escape it?
Can I crawl into a hole, can I break it?
Can I break the curse, can I fake it?
Can I fake my innocence? Will I make it?
Alorella, what a beautiful name. Dotingly given, meant to tame. Meant to tame this heart so black. Meant to give the love I lack.
Alorella means sweet song in our native tongue. But Alorella is a name never to be sung.
For those that sing of me will learn, despite my redemption, the darkness, I yearn. This is why I begin my life’s tale in rhyme. It helps me express the hurt I feel inside.
Alorella—I am the fostered daughter of the kind Villie-Tora.
Alorella—sister of Dravel and of Sydonia.
Alorella—master of deceit and of betrayal.
Alorella—trapped, I am slave to my own portrayal.
Why did the fates deal me this hand? I’ll never be able to understand. Would I have been better off raised by a monster, not risking hurting those I care about? Or is it best to remain with my dear Villie-Tora, the woman who nurtured me, who loves me without a doubt?
Seeing that I AM a monster, it would have been better raised by one.
Now, I sit here in the rain wanting nothing more than to run. To run as far as I could, where no one can find me. No monster, no mother, neither death, nor life. Far away into the abyss where I’ll cease to exist. Oh what a thrilling thought, I just can’t resist. That’s just what I want, that’s just what I’ll do.
My story is one you simply must hear, but my story is one that you must beware.
.........Beware my name!

As noted in the title, this is the prelude to a story in the making. The story, Alorella: Beware My Name", may or may not be written in my characters' point of view. The prelude is in Alorella's point of view but I may switch to 3rd person for the rest of the story.
The story takes in the Paraome Realm (magical realm), specifically in the Kingdon of Nacora. The time period is the 17th century but in the Paraome Realm, some things are more congruent to the Medieval Times.
Alorella struggles against her dark nature, in constant fear of hurting her family.
I posted this Prelude as an "experiment" to see the responses and the feedback I will receive. If all goes well, I would continue here on HubPages. It all depends on several factors, mainly the opinion of my readers. Please answer the poll and comment.
