Melli again, now married. She is still powerless thanks to the magical chain around her neck, and her hopes of escape or rescue dwindles by the hour. She has considered it, but she can't even kill herself; she knows that would result in a terrible, slow death for her two friends locked in the dungeons. Melli is now queen, wife of the dark lord, but she feels more like his prisoner. The mere thought of her husband scares her witless although he is nice to her and never harms her in any way. She is not allowed outside the castle walls, and in order to keep her friends from being tormented, she has to do his every bidding. The only relief she has is the small garden in the inner courtyard, the only bit of nature she is allowed near. This is done in Corel Painter (c) with a Wacom tablet (c) I am colouring this at the moment, I'll upload it the moment I'm done.
