Bridal Rights

I asked her father for her as my queen. But, unbeknownst to him, I had treated her, first, as any other young woman and asked if she would wish to be my wife.

Had she said ‘No,’ I would have ignored the diplomatic advantage and her father’s hints.

That had been on an improbable lawn within the war-torn city.

Over winter I began to fear that she would see our wild, uncultured, grasses and regret her choice. But now she smiles, her face lights up, and I know I will have a willing wife as well as a suitable queen.
