"My lady I beg you to reconsider." Fredrigo pleaded. "This part of the village is not safe. There aren't a lot of masculine in these parts. I can offer your family the protection you need."She cringed inwardly at the thought of her staying in Fredrigo's house. She was too wise to fall into his trap. She knew it was harsh to falsely accuse him of forcing that animal to attack her. The idea even sounded vague to her all of a sudden. A sensation she knew too well as guilt over came her. Staring at him she noticed how troubled he looked. Could it really mean that he was concerned about her family? Or was he using their vulnerability as an advantage to steal his way into her heart?Knowing men all too well she decided to stick with option two. Men would do anything in there power to get a woman's attention. She learned that through her readings. Her thoughts drifted back to when she was harassed by her former employer. She couldn't afford to face that faith again. It was too much for a
She heard talking but it sounded so muffled. She couldn't make out what the voice was saying. A grown left her lips when she tried to move her hands. Pain coursed through her body and her head felt like it was being hammered. She tried to open her eyes but her vision was blurry. Was I dead? She thought to herself. There was no other way to explain the agonizing pain she was feeling. She was expecting to feel the coldness of the ground and complete darkness but what she felt was warmth and comfort. She could also see fractions of light from under her heavy eyelids. Another groan left her lips and she grabbed her pounding head and forced herself to sit up. "She awake!" She heard the surprised voice of her sister before she was embraced with a hug. "Thank goodness." Ella sighed and rushed to aid her sick daughter. " Relax honey, you bumped your head pretty badly." Her eyes fluttered open and she was greeted by her mother's dull, lifeless eyes. A worried expression clouded her face.
Aurora sat beside Violet on the bed. She caressed ber shoulder and gave her a side hug."I don't think mom approves of anything, Violet. " She said.Apart of her was hoping her sister was in love with Felix. Felix was the only man that knew Violet's worth. Other men would only go after her, because of her good looks. Men only cared about women that looked appealing in their arms. Most men were egocentric thus Violet would be treated like a puppet on a string. She wouldn't be granted her freedom. Aurora wanted what was best for her older sister. And she knew Felix was that good she needed. Females in the village relied heavily on traditions and Aurora knew it was what held them back. Females believed men should rule their lives while Aurora on the other hand thought otherwise.She knew her mother had to be paid a good sum of money since she insisted on marrying off the youngest child first. Normally it was the oldest that went first. No one wanted to leave their oldest child unwed, th
"Have you tested the waters before you start complaining?" Aurora furrowed her eyebrows and asked Felix. He lifted his shoulder and dropped it. Uncertainty was as clear as day on his face. "Violet wants a better life than the one she's living and I cannot give that to her." He said with a sigh. Aurora knew what Felix said was true. Her sister wanted a man that could give her pretty expensive stuff. Felix's small wage couldn't do much but Aurora thought that maybe Violet would open her eyes and notice that there was someone who still notice her. Aurora didn't know where her sister got that silly idea of hers. If men were running away from her, why was Felix still there? Why won't she notice him? "You do have a point but you are doing more harm than good when you conceal your feelings." Aurora said. She was never in love but she knew a thing or two from the books she read to know that love was a dangerous feeling. It is good in many ways but in some circumstances, it can be a danger
She never shut her eyes that night. She peeked down at her sister who was sound asleep and she couldn't help but feel jealous. She missed being able to close her eyes and drift into another world even if it lingered for a minute. As long as the night was she thought about what the man said. It was then realization struct her, whoever was paying that much money for her intentions weren't clean. But she couldn't back down on the offer, her home needed repair, the house needed food and her mother needed medication. Even if she wanted to decline the offer she knew it was impossible. The man had threatened her saying a decision would be made for her. What decision? Were they going to force her against her will to do something she didn't want to?She could still feel the weight of the money in her hand. But she didn't know why anyone would pay that much for a young girl. Were they that wealthy? Where did that much money come from? All the thinking left her with a headache and no an
Aurora ran as fast as her feet could take her, away from her employer's shop. She knew working for him came with risks, but for her family, she would risk anything except her vertue. Her employer's touch felt like insects crawling on her skin it felt disgusting. She couldn't get it out of her mind. Even though she was saved once again by someone her mother wanted her to marry, she couldn't stop thinking about how far her employer was going to take things with her.This time she knew for sure there was no going back to that place. It was stupid of her to work for him after he assaulted her multiple times. She looked down on her bruised wrists and tears began to flow like a river as she fell to her knees in the middle of the woods.She felt as if the world was on her shoulders and everyone was expecting only one thing from her. Something she wasn't ready for. What did she do to be in such a situation?The clouds burst and rain began to pour from the heav
The next day was as exhausting as the previous one. It was like her life was left on replay. She repeated the same tasks every day and her boss was the same. She was so fed up with her job and her family. She felt as if the entire world was against her. Her sister was the only one in the world that wasn't against her.She would wake up make herself breakfast and leave for work. Since her sister was always asleep she would leave her notes on her whereabouts. Fredrigo never showed up after she told him she didn't want to see him again and she was grateful for that because she could have peace of mind.She avoided having any conversation with her mother because they always ended in a fight. She hated when they argued because she always said things she would regret later on.That morning she prepared her mother's medication and left for work. The news of the king's mysterious death spread throughout the village like wildfire. Everyone was talking about it. Aur
Aurora awoke that morning feeling worst than the day before. She had a severe headache and she was starving. She couldn't believe her life could change so drastically within a matter of days.She forcefully got out of bed that morning and got herself ready for work despite not being up for the task. She managed to drag herself to the kitchen where she cooked a pot of rice and poured herself a steaming cup of camomile tea. Waiting for the rice to cool was like forever and she felt as if she would die of starvation. She managed to eat the rice but burned herself in the process.She didn't see her mother that morning before she left for work and she was thankful, she couldn't face her after what happened yesterday. Her sister was still asleep when she left the house and she didn't bother to wake her up. Violet would be worried about her so she left her a note telling her where she was going. She couldn't bother to cause her sister a heart attack since she had a mental
Tears flowed down Ella's pale cheeks as she watched the person she cherished the most walk away from her. Her heart ached a bit as she thought about the difficult situation she was putting Aurora through. Deep down she knew that she was only doing her a favor. one day to come she would understand the nature of her doings."Has she made a decision yet?" Fredrigo said as he approached Ella. "Or should I make one for her?""She's just a child you know." She wiped the tears that flowed down her cheeks with her worn-out handkerchief. She knew Aurora would not forgive her if she forced her to go through the marriage. And maybe even in the future when she found out the reason, she still wouldn't forgive her."No child behaves the way Aurora does and I would be an idiot to let her slip through my fingers." He frowned as he remembered what occurred between both him and Kaleb."How will she slip through your fingers when you killed every man that takes
