My husband looked at me from above, his pale eyes full of arrogance.

"Am I not allowed to do what I want?"

The prideful tone of his voice hurt me deep inside, but I backed it off, tried to ignore my displeasure.

"It's not like I am drinking every day. You should try too."

He swiped his thumb over the edge of my jaw. I was confused hearing Edmund utter such suggestion.

"What is wrong with you?" I stepped back. "It's like I am facing a completely different man!"

I heard him take a deep breath, a little shaky it felt.

"Violet! More wine to my room!" His voice boomed through the halls.

Taking the last glance at me he slowly walked in direction of our room. Edmund's steps were heavy and he could barely walk in a straight line.

"Edmund! Don't ignore me! What is going on?"

My heart broke seeing him in such state as I have never laid my eyes upon. Why was he staying silent? I hated so much when he closed off and kept all his burdens and problems to himself.

I followed him, getting frustrated more and more for his childish behavior. Violet rushed in with a tray, wine, and glass. She looked so much troubled as everyone else.

"Don't!"

"B... but my lord..."

"He does not need to drink more, I will take care of him, don't worry."

"As you wish, my lady."

I followed him feeling anxious, a little bit afraid. I didn't know what to expect. What if he hurts me? With throbbing in my heart I opened the bedroom door and saw Edmund staring out the window. His one hand was holding on to t

d I mean nothing to him or is this just a phase he will get out of when he sobers up?

I found a quiet room, locked myself in and let my emotions free. My heart felt heavy with bitter feelings and today's experiences altogether. The slave girls and Edmund... It felt too much for one day. One by one the tears were falling until I could not see a thing in front of me. The blurred out walls and paintings turned in unrecognizable forms in front of my eyes.

As always my mind tried to find the answer to why my life is so hard? Even after changing the classes I still feel the same and there seems to be no end to my problems. For once in my life, I want the calmness of the daily life that some common people experience. Will I ever get to experience it? Be happy and carefree with no worry in the world?

Such an unattainable dream...

But I do not plan to give up yet. I still have hope that someday I will be granted this gift I have wished forever.

And I hope Edmund will be beside me when it happens. I wish to share my happiness with him.
