Sileas couldn't believe it. It was the night before her wedding. Millie was making any necessary adjustments to her wedding dress before she would change into her midnight blue gown for the feast being prepared in the kitchens. Sileas was trying hard to keep her hands off of the fabric because Millie had repeatedly fussed at her for leaving sweat behind.

Yehudit moodily stared at a wall. "I shouldn't go... I shouldn't even be here."

It had only been two weeks, but Yehudit had become noticeably paler and thinner. But she had not had any rages. Or admired any shirtless guys.

"Of course I do have something to hide. Wulfsen hasn't seen me without my clothing yet," Sileas fussed. She carefully hung the dress up before the changing screen in the corner. At least with the intricate steel work on the shoulders, it stayed on the hanger. She pulled on the blue velvet and came back around so Millie could lace it up in the back.

"Larrigan was the one who broke down my walls. Remember, if the raid hadn't happened, I would be marrying him right now. But he was patient, he didn't push, he made me laugh and he played me music. This is about Pinja, yeah? Her situation was a lot different. She went through years of ongoing abuse from someone she should have been able to trust and feel safe around. I never trusted or loved Andy, and thanks to your father and Uncle Aron, Andy only had me for less than a week. I also longed for someone to love and take care of me." She didn't mention that she believed herself to have been stronger than Pinja.

Lek reached into his pocket and took out the sapphire he had offered to Pinja, only to have it be rejected. He fidgeted with it.

"I want to marry her but I don't expect that now, not for a very long time, if ever... Now I just want to be her friend. But she's so afraid of me, I can't even be in the same room as her without her being afraid. I'd do anything for her but I don't know what I can do. I want to help her." Lek willed himself not to cry, he couldn't go to the feast with a tear stained face, it wasn't manly and he was training to become a knight.

"I love her, I've liked her for a long time... Was going to ask about courting her but I knew she had been hurt so I was waiting for her to trust me more, she wasn't afraid of me then but I didn't think the time was right yet... Then the raid happened and they hurt her worse and I wasn't there to protect her. I don't deserve her."

"Oh, Lek. Of course you deserve her. Just like I know Larrigan couldn't be there to protect me, Pinja doesn't hold you accountable for what happened. My only advice is to not push. Extend friendship but nothing else. I honestly don't know if she will ever be in a position to fall in love again, but someday she may be able to be in the room with you and not be afraid. Right now, she's not even very trusting of very man women. Pinja has a long, difficult road. Jack hurt her in so many ways."

Sileas had managed a few hours of sleep, despite her excitement. It had helped that her parents had taken Oscar for the night. Her mother was already there, fussing around, so obviously Oscar was with her father. Sileas was enjoying an early bath, listening to Millie and Mama move about. She was excited to finally see the dress. Millie had assured her the dress was absolutely perfect for her, and there was absolutely no ruffles. In fact, Millie admitted she had designed it some time ago. Sileas dried herself off and stepped out of the tub, wrapping herself in the thick wrapper.

Sileas's glance traveled to where Millie was working any wrinkles out. She gasped. Apparently her mother had even been pressed into service while she and Wulfsen had been away looking for Aalyssa. The dress itself was a midnight blue, with a filmy overskirt. Instead of fabric, the shoulders had been made from a delicate metal. "That is gorgeous," she whispered, heading over for a closer look. On the floor was matching slippers. Millie had outdone herself.

Once Aunt Brie had finished with Sileas's hair, and for the moment, it looked stunning with the beads and ribbons woven through out, they helped her into the dress. Millie had made a padding from flesh colored fabric for under the metal so that Sileas's shoulders would not get scratched. After lacing it up the back, Millie showed her hidden pockets for her daggers and anything else she may want to carry.

Then finally, Brie placed the choker made of the same ribbon but donned with stones of the same blue color around Sileas's neck. Once the shoes were on her feet, they both stepped back and gazed at her. "Beautiful," they said in unison.
