    Summary

    Calcutta, 1902. The word ‘dance’ comes to mind, their own choreography of gazes exchanged across the room, brushes of hands and half-spoken confessions. They orbit around each other, destined never to collide it seems; Mercier is upper class, Betty is a governess. And he’s spying on the family whose children she swore to protect.
    But in this foreign land of spices and silk, of golden gods and lush forests, where cultural norms clash and wane, even destinies must yield to desire.

    A/N: you don't need to have seen either show.

    Summary

    Betty loved tracing the spidery cursive writing that ran down her forearm in a tidy line, loved dreaming about the person would one day say those words to her and reveal themselves as her soulmate. Foolish dreams for one of her station to have, people said, but she held tight to them regardless and hoped they would lead her in the right direction.
