Once upon a time, in a small village nestled among rolling hills, there lived a young woman named Isabella. With her flowing golden hair and captivating blue eyes, she was the epitome of beauty. Isabella was known far and wide for her radiant smile and kind heart. Many young suitors sought her hand in marriage, but Isabella remained indifferent to their advances. She believed that true love was something to be cherished and not rushed into.

However, as fate would have it, a wealthy nobleman named Lord Sebastian visited the village one day. With his striking looks and charming demeanor, he quickly caught Isabella's attention. Lord Sebastian was captivated by her beauty and sought her hand in marriage. Despite her reservations, Isabella found herself drawn to him and agreed to become his bride.

As the preparations for the wedding began, Isabella's friends and family noticed a change in her. The once vibrant and caring woman seemed distant and cold. Gone was her radiant smile, replaced by a permanent frown etched on her face. Concerned, Isabella's mother approached her, hoping to understand the cause of her daughter's sudden transformation.

"My dear Isabella," her mother said, "you were always so full of life and happiness. What has happened to you? Why do you seem so heartless?"

Isabella sighed, her eyes clouded with sadness. "Mother, I have made a grave mistake. Lord Sebastian is not the man I thought he was. He is cruel and demanding, and I fear that my life will be nothing but misery by his side."

Her mother held her gently, understanding the weight of her words. "My child, it is never too late to change your path. Your happiness is of utmost importance. If Lord Sebastian is not the right match for you, then we will find a way to set you free."

With renewed hope, Isabella made a plan. On the day of the wedding, as she walked down the aisle, she glanced around the church, searching for a way to escape her impending doom. Spotting a window ajar, she knew that it was her chance for liberation.

With a sudden burst of courage, Isabella broke free from the traditional path, veering away from the altar. Shocked gasps filled the church as she sprinted towards the open window, leaving behind her heartless groom and a crowd of bewildered onlookers. She jumped out of the window and landed gracefully in the garden below, her white gown billowing around her like a cloud.

As she raced through the village, her heart pounding with both fear and relief, Isabella stumbled upon a humble cottage at the edge of town. Its wooden door creaked open, revealing an old woman named Agnes. Agnes had a reputation for being wise and kind-hearted.

"Dear child, what brings you to my doorstep in such haste?" Agnes asked, concern etched on her wrinkled face.

Isabella caught her breath and poured her heart out, recounting her ill-fated decision to marry Lord Sebastian and her subsequent escape. Agnes listened attentively, her eyes filled with compassion.

"My child, it is clear that you have been granted a second chance at happiness," Agnes said gently. "Take this opportunity to find your true love, someone who will cherish you for the remarkable woman you are."

With Agnes's guidance, Isabella embarked on a journey of self-discovery. She traveled from village to village, learning about different cultures and meeting people from all walks of life. Along the way, she encountered kind souls who showed her the true meaning of love and compassion. Isabella blossomed under their care, her heart thawing from the icy shell it had become.

One day, while passing through a bustling city, Isabella stumbled
