The world is a cruel place. It always has been. There was nothing that could be done to fix it. Over time the world has evolved, empires have fallen and rose until one power took over us all. They told us it was for the best and without it we wouldn't be able to live in peace and harmony. What they don't tell you, is what lies beyond.

(A/N: alright this is still a work in progress and it probably sucks so please feel free to tell me what you think.)


1. Prologue:


I used to think my world was perfect. It seemed to be flawless. My parents were happily married, my brother was the smartest person I knew, and my betrothed was incredibly attractive. Since I was a little girl, I knew what my life was to be like. The great council decided that to avoid broken hearts, which could lead to terrible traumas; everyone has a mate, they're engaged at birth. The bonds have never been broken in all of our history. They picked out ideal lives. I just wasn't meant to live one of them.

Throughout time it was decided that in order to prevent evil, all criminals should be banished; and so they were. Anyone who the was deemed unworthy of reproduction was banished. Doomed to live out their life alone in the out lands. For years everyone was terrified of being banished. The great council ruled for centuries until that fateful day, the day it all began crumbling. The day I met Luke.
