She gazed down at the bustling streets from her tower, mourning the loss of a life she would never know. A girl sells a basket of flowers down below. A husband and wife meet in the streets. And she knew that if they looked up at her, they would desire her life. But they were wrong to do so. A princess held captive, trapped in her high tower unless she agreed to marry a man she hated. She was a bold princess, and before she was captured she had wandered the streets in civilian clothes and had forced the master of the guard to teach her to fight. In petticoats with her hair down, this wasn't who she was. Not only was she trapped, but she was kept from the things she loved most. And if she married this man, much older than her, she would be kept from them for forever.
