    Summary

    The necklace was shining in the ballroom like the ocean glistening in the sun, and she was the boat, looming right into a future she did not belong, and yet she was so real, the necklace was so real, the people were so authentic in their copied smiles and courtiers’ speeches, she believed it, she did.

    The weight of the necklace felt like a feather, tickling her throat like a knife. She was bright and beautiful, and she felt as light as ever.

    There was a light as golden as that night, and in a moment of persuasion, she felt her hand were tainted in that golden complexion too.
