Isabelle stood alone in the town square, trembling.
The thin material of her dress fluttered in the harsh wind, clinging to her and offering no protection from the elements. She hugged her wedding shawl tighter around herself, turned her back to the wind, and waited.
This was not what she had imagined when she had sewn her wedding dress, or during all the painstaking hours that she had spent knitting the gauzy white shawl. She had imagined flowers, sweet perfumes, smiling faces. A warm spring day and some special someone waiting for her at the altar of the village church. Now everything had changed, and she was standing alone on a bleak November day, watching the sun set and waiting for the Dragon to take her away.
