When the serpent lied and bit her hand
Sentencing her to eternal horror

Hi! I’m an 18 year old writer, aspiring to grow in the author world and write for a living. Writing has always been an escape, something I not only love to do, but need to do. Stories are wonderful to live in. I write books, poems, and occasionally short stories!
