Dark and deary was the sight before her failing eyes. Her body felt heavy and she sighed in defeat. Her eyes begged to differ as it glared fiercely at the dark skinned man before her.

Blood was oozing from her temple and she fought to stay awake and alert. She was tied to a chair like an animal tied to a pole. She needed to get out. Fast!

melissakrandle: So the story was okay. The usual forced marriage trope that takes place during the days of carriage rides and makeup lined with lead.
