Listing 1 story.

In London, England, a noble girl abandons the soiree that her mother threw for her so that she could find a suitable husband. After fleeing the celebration, she visits a goblin market in the darkness of the night, where she meets a handsome gentleman who reveals himself to be a vampire by sucking her blood. This leads the girl down a path of loss, and then, redemption.
