Nearly a month had passed since my wedding, and my days have become routine in their blessed blandness. As a child I hoped for an exciting adulthood filled with adventures, but as a married woman I now am thankful for the very sameness of my days. After living with Aunt Penelope's bizarre moodswings, these days seemed idyllic and comforting.
It was with mild surprise that evening, when I was summoned to my lord's quarters after my evening ritual of a bath and brushing had finished.
