Once upon a time there was a married couple who had a daughter named Ivy. The couple was very poor, but that didn't stop them from being very happy.
But there was also this queen, who was normally sweet and kind but whenever a female was born, she raged. Everyone thought this was because she was worried that they would steal her throne, but this was not the chase.
The couple lived in the woods, far from the queen's reach. The queen hadn't heard of them.... until today that is.
It was on a cold and snowy day, the family was happily sitting by their fireplace and chatting.
Two Royal Guards were in the nearby town collecting taxes, when one of them saw the smoke from the fireplace.
The guards knocked on the door, thinking they had forgotten to get money from a house.
