Adella – 1887
I drifted in and out of consciousness.
Nathaniel held me, kissing my cheeks, my hair, my lips, my body shivering with pleasure.
“Love you always.”
“Do not say that.” I smiled coyly.
“I will. Nothing could prevent my feelings for you. No matter what my father says.”
Warning bells going off in my head. Unable to move.
The magistrate with an evil grin. What was happening? Arms like lead. Legs too.
“I have been waiting for you.” His laugh I had always hated bounced off the walls.
Where was Nathaniel? I could hear him. He was saying…what was he saying?
“No. Not her. She is not like the others. You are wrong.” He shouted. He begged. He was silenced. Tears filled my eyes.
My knees drug against the cobblestone path as two guards held me under my arms. I tried to cry out but my tongue was a heavy as my legs. It felt as if my lips were sown shut. Please. Please help me! Nathaniel!
I was weak but could move on my own. I had no energy to compel a guard, even if I had seen one. No one came near me. I knew why. The magistrate had ordered me left alone. The girl who had told him of my gifts rotted two cells over. I plotted her demise to take my mind off my own.
I sat on the cold damp floor. Snippets of the past fell away as I became aware of my surrounding for another miserable day. Rats scurried about waiting for tiny morsels of food to be left behind or a withering body to drop dead.
