    Summary

    “You deserve a gift, even so,” my uncle continues and I don’t hear the danger in it until it’s too late. “Kassandra, stand for me.”

    No.

    My eyes are still on Brasidas as he turns to me, squaring his wool covered shoulders. I stand, unwilling or unable to resist a direct order from my King.

    “Come forward, I’ve made my decision.”

    A prized pig brandied about to the highest bidder. My eyes cast low as my dread is replaced by fire.

    “Brasidas, my niece’s hand for your victories. You’ll wed in Gamelion, Hera’s moon. Many blessings.”

    I can’t look up. I can’t face it.

    The fire goes cold, barely knowing warmth within my chest.

    Brasidas doesn’t touch me, perhaps knowing that I’d snap his wrist if he tried.

    Summary

    “I’d follow you across the world, Kassandra. I’d live everyday of my life for you. If you think this is too fast, and you’d like to slow it down, just tell me. I’d understand, and follow your lead. But the token and the flowers are my offer to you: your answer doesn’t have to be today, or even tomorrow. As long as you know my offer stands, and I stand with it.”

    “I accept you,” she whispered. “Whether you’re standing, or sitting, I accept you.”
