Chapter 98 Wait For Me?
- Ethan released my hand an I let it slip into the water. Only when it was underneath the surface did I ball it into fists. Ethan turned from me, he didn’t address the servants as he walked toward the door. The girls continued their washing but didn’t utter a word. It wasn’t until the door closed behind Ethan that it felt like I could breathe for the first time in days. I didn’t let myself fall apart but I couldn’t keep the tears from escaping and streaming down my cheeks.
- I remained calm and looked out of the window. The sky was painted with beautiful colors. I had thought the view from my window back home was breathtaking but being here, in this room atop a mountain, it felt as if I were up in the sky among the colors. I didn’t let myself dwell on what had happened.
- Today was only the first day and things would only get worse from here. I knew this but I couldn’t help but feel lost. After they had finished washing me I stood to my feet and stepped out of the tub. They dried me and dressed me for bed. Silk cascaded down my body, the dress stopped just below my knees, and I closed my eyes as I tried to hold it together. I walked to the window and stared out while Nicole came and brushed my hair. She didn’t smell like a wolf and I wondered what she was. I’d only ever been around my father’s back and those he thought were acceptable.
