I sat by the window…waiting…waiting for him to come back.I have been here for days it seems, the moon shining bright through the window.The stars high above that make me want to run outside and
But I cannot.I am not allowed to leave this house.He told me that if I left, the people would take me away from him.I cannot leave him…he is my life, my soul, my love.
But the stars are so inviting…just a peek shall not hurt.
I walk to the door and open it.The wind blows my skirt around my ankles as I look onto the night.
Such beauty does not compare. Just one dance will satisfy me…and no one shall be the wiser.
I began my dance under the moon and stars…a step to the left, a twirl to the right, another step forward, and….
Someone grabs me.They place a bag atop my head…I can no longer see the moon or stars.Darkness swallows me…
I wake up.
