Darling Crest by Jacquilantern99

  • Story: Ever wondered what happens when Child Protective Services take away your children? I’ll let you in on a secret. They’re all taken in by Agnes Crumplebottom, here at Darling Crest. Rumour has it that Agnes started this safe haven to try and heal her broken heart, others say it’s to find her long-lost child. We can confirm that both statements are true. Agnes has lived at Darling Crest her whole life (previously known as 1342 Widdowers Drive). She lived there with her father Simon, who adored her. Her mother, Prudence, who despised her. And her older sister, Cornelia, who loved her. Although, as the years passed. The two slowly drifted apart. With Cornelia marrying her high school sweetheart Gunther, Agnes no longer had Cornelia’s protection. With her mother constantly pushing her around, Agnes became rebellious and would stay out adventuring with her friends for hours. This is how she met Erik Darling, it was love at first sight! And once together, they swore to keep their relationship a secret. Until the day Erik proposed! Agnes shared the news with her family in hopes that it would make her mother happy, But she was wrong. Prudence was furious! “Agnes is too young and naive for marriage” But for the first time in his life, Simon stood up to his wife. He congratulated the happy couple and even offered to pay for their honeymoon, little did Agnes know that her time with Erik was up! With Erik lost at sea, Agnes returned heartbroken. But she didn’t return alone. Nine months later, Agnes was blessed with a baby girl. She named her Erika Darling, In honour of her father. But they only had a few hours left before Erika would be taken away from her. Prudence called CPS, deeming Agnes to be an unfit mother. Sadly, this time, Simon did not have the strength to stand up to his wife. Which brings us back to today. Agnes’ hate towards others is not only because they had what she couldn’t, true love & a real family, but also because she sees the sadness in the eyes of these neglected children, and that these parents are just like her mother.
