Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
I was betrothed against my will to a brute, due to be married within the year, due to have an abysmal life of misery and inferiority, constantly wishing and hoping for some beauty, some passion in my life.

I was wading into treacherous waters, but that just made it all the more enticing.

So many of your decisions aren’t yours; they’re made by other people. Sometimes they’re made badly by other people. Sometimes they’re made by other people who have no idea what the consequences of those decisions might be. The bastards.
