A boy with a gentle smile, a pure heart, and a soul of laughter had fallen in love with me.8Please respect copyright.PENANA5EVsmWDpHe

I wore elegant gowns of white and my face was covered by a veil. My feet were barefoot and on my shoulders and ears hung diamonds and other fine stones. My nails were painted blood red and my long, wavy maroon hair was dressed with pearls.copyright protection4PENANAW3iOrHlbCZ

I sat on a pure white bed that was covered by a silk canopy. No one could see my figure within it but an opening between the sheets made me able to view the room outside of my bed.copyright protection4PENANAPIuSJ7sdk9
