(So I was thinking the time period could be modern if that's alright with you ^^) Karou (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Karou (open) Karou (close) Karou ignored her parents attempts to talk to her and simply shut the door in their faces. She stormed over to her bed and threw herself down. She knew she was acting like a child, but dammit she had a right to be! How dare her parents simply give her away like she was merely an item to be thrown away. Did they at least ask her if she was okay with this? No! Instead they just destroyed her future and any chance she might have had at one. Tears of anger and despair filled her eyes and she furiously blinked them away. She would not cry. She had to be strong if she wanted to get through the horror that was tonight. Soon, too soon for her liking, there was a knock on the door. It was a maid, stating Karou needed to begin getting ready. For tonight. Her wedding night. More tears came to her eyes and she whipped them away. When the knocking didn't stop Karou finally let out a breath and went to open the door. She was promptly dragged out of her room and down the hall into another room. There the maids quickly undressed her, leaving Karou sputtering in shock. A dress was forced over her head and Karou helplessly raised her arms. The material settled around her figure, accenting her curves but no so much that she felt uncomfortable. The dress was as white as freshly driven snow and floated around her, making her look graceful even though she was standing still. She was pushed down onto a bench and two maids started on her makeup while the other started on her hair. She reluctantly sat still, even though she wanted nothing more than to run from the room, run from what they were preparing her for. Soon they were done and Karou blinked at her refection. Was that beauty staring back really her? Before she reach out to see shoes were shoved onto her feet and she was pulled up and tugged from the room. She was lead downstairs and she finally shook off the maids hands, scowling at them as she marched out to the car waiting for and slid inside. She ignored her parents and stared pointedly out the window, heart falling to her stomach when the car pulled away and her home disappeared from her sight.
