The Secret Garden
Few suspected the romantic heart that beat behind the Steward's dour exterior. A lengthy courtship allowed him time to plan, his secret entrusted to a skillful few.
On the night of the first full-moon of his married life, he led his bride by hidden pathways. Kissing her hair as he untied the soft silk blindfold, he smiled at her surprised gasp: a shimmering garden of pure white flowers, illuminated only by moonlight and starlight. Narcissus and anemone, jasmine and wisteria; the heady perfume an incense, an homage to the lady who held his heart, his future, in her gentle hands.
