The night was like no other. Heavy, cold darkness crept into every crack and crevice in and around the castle preventing even a sliver of light from the many stars and moons from softening the blackness. It was a winter darkness that was unusual for this time of year causing many to retire earlier than normal. There was no breeze and although the air was sluggish, it induced a deep, restful sleep which created many dreams.
Saturna lay on her side in her enormous overstuffed bed with her covers tucked tightly about her. Her long, dark-brown hair formed a tangled mess of curls which almost completely hid her beautiful heart-shaped face. Her gentle breath was soft and regular and she was having the most wonderful dream when a hand reached out to touch her shoulder.
“Saturna, you must get up. You’ve been summoned to the King’s chambers,” said her female servant carefully sliding Saturna’s silky hair away from her face.
