Van's words stung in her ears, worse than if he had just kicked her to the floor. She turned to him with a wide eyed shocked expression, unable to speak for a change. The thing that hurt the most was the realisation of her fear. She could not bear to think of herself trapped in a marriage to a man that did not care for her, could not love her and viewed her only as another adornment to their estates. It was what her mother had feared at her age and continued to be thankful she had escaped.

Alexandria knew the importance of making a prudent match but she was still young and had the same idealistic views that her mother had of a knight in shining armour combining love and money into one perfect man. Clearly, Van was not that man. Without a word to him she stood up, smoothed her dress and flounced from the hall.
