New to Tapas here and loving all the content! I've been working on a story for a few years now and finally decided to post it. If you're a fan of sweet, fluffy romances (and plenty of steamy scenes ) please check out my story 'Aesria'.
Aesria meets her husband for the first time on their wedding day. A marriage arranged by her father. She'd agreed because this meant a chance for a better life, but would that man who was now her husband be the beginning of another prison guard? Only time would tell.
Darkness towered from the doorway. He was tall, or perhaps it was the thick locks of his hair that added extra height. Whatever it was, he nearly touched the top of the door frame. Every fibre in her being urged her to run. It was a feeling she was all too familiar with. But for some reason, something kept her body rooted in place. She could only stare, take in the shadows haunting his body. When he stepped into the room, the dim light from the candles gave her the first glimpse of his face. Her heart pounded. Stomach dropped. Everything about his face was a straight, harsh angle. And even in the warmth of the candles' glow, there was an impenetrable coldness. Perhaps it was his deep set eyes – set so deeply that shadows filled their crevices and made the colour of his irises unintelligible. Aesria could only read the menace radiating from them. It was such a cold and harsh emotion coming from someone she'd only seen face to face for the first time, that she flinched. Caught herself and swallowed.
Thank you in advance!
