Veiled in divine magic, she lived in the land of strange dreams and infinite treasures. Her caramel skin glowed brighter breaking the darkness asunder. Her eyes sparkled like diamonds and her crimson-red lips curled into a smile that bled colors of ecstasy into the moonlit sky. The fragrance of her delicate tresses drifted through the air, blending with the scent of her body. She was a Goddess beyond the realms of definition, teasing the chords of every man’s heart. She was a beauty beheld, a beauty sought, and a beauty to behold.

Oh, well, she is searching for answers as well.
