I ran to my room with hot tears streaming down my face. As soon as I entered my room I slammed the door shut and sank to the floor.
I didn know how long I lay on my bed crying my eyes out till there were no more tears. I lay on my bed motionlessly thinking of what to do. I can just get married to a stranger no this can be happening to me.
”Mom why did you leave me in this world why ”. I said as fresh tears started to fall from my eyes. I never taught that I will get married to a stranger no not even in my wildest dreams. I always dreamed of finding romance feeling what is like to be loved, having a first romantic kiss like I always read in books and so much more. But all of my dreams have been put to an end, not all my dreams were shattered. I wished I could run away from this mess but I couldn . As I taught about what to do I heard a soft tap on my door.
#knock, #knock, #knock
”Go away I don feel like seeing anyone right now ” I mumbled weakly, but the knocks were persistent. I ignored it with the hope that after a while the person will eventually go away but when the knocks didn stop I slowly dragged myself out of bed and went to open the door. When I opened the door my maid Alicia walked in with a cheerful look on her face.
”Good evening milady ” she greeted smiling brightly but when she saw how my eyes were swollen her cheerful looks dropped to a worried one.
”Lady Annabelle oh my gosh, are you feeling okay, are you hurting somewhere, who did this to you, let me draw you a warm bath ”, she asked looking at my face worriedly. I managed to get her a weak smile and nodded slowly she gave me a light bow and left. I went to sit on my bed without saying a word.
”milady your bath is ready ” I stood up from where I was seated and headed to the bathroom with Alicia trailing behind my back when I got to the bathroom entrance I stopped and turned to Alicia.
”You don have to wash me up, just keep the towel by the tub, arrange my room, get me a glass of milk, and please bring me a dress to wear ”
”Yes milady but which dress would you like to wear and will you like your milk hot, warm or cold, ” she asked bending her head slightly
”I would love something short, pink flowers, long sleeves, and a glass of cold milk ”
”Yes milady, ” she said as she took her to leave
I went to the tub and socked myself it felt refreshing I don know how long I stayed in that position until I heard a tap on the door.
”Lady Annabelle sorry to disturb but you have been having been there for too long are you sure you are ok and you don need help, ” she asked from outside the bathroom but I just smiled without replying.
”Lady Annabelle are you in there Im coming in already ”
”No need Alicia Im fine ok and Ill be out in a minute, ” I said stepping out of the bathtub.
