Season 3 Episode 10: “Pretty Was Her Face” by Eugene Ramos

A king trying to protect his daughter after the loss of his wife. A thief with royal aspirations. A witch with the worst of intentions. What could go wrong?

To close out season 3, we’ve selected this amazing original fairy tale by Eugene. The storytelling and language used transports you to the time and place the story is set in, makes it all feel so real even though the story itself is quite fantastical. We’re so lucky to have Michelle, along with Jeremy, yet again to bring this marvelous story to life.

  1. I run a vape store web directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that additionally markets CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop website directory. We do not sell CBD products such as CBD oil. We solely provide online marketing services to CBD firms. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they sell a somewhat extensive series of CBD goods, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to many different companies. Due to this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has constricted my payment options and right now, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have gotten in touch with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is entirely unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform benchmark to all firms. I am still to speak to a different lawyer from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
