THE FEAST OF ANSEGDNISS (158 words)
“Welcome to the Feast of Ansegdniss!” Annalise and Marigold was ushered into a great hall lined with dimmed chandeliers. A long table donned crimson linens, crystal goblets, and gold plates and flatware. Cocktails served, chatter drifted among seated noblemen and jeweled countesses.
How had they been so lucky to be invited?
“I’m pleased you could join us.” Duke Reginald’s smile brought a flush to Annalise’s cheeks.
He was beautiful: eyes flecked with gold that danced in the firelight, sharp cheekbones, lips that beckoned to be tasted.
“Thank you.” Marigold batted her eyes.
The Duke looked at Annalise, hunger and desire unhampered. “Tonight won’t be forgotten.”
Annalise’s heart pounded. He took her hand. They stood.
“Tonight we celebrate. Let us feast…” The Duke hushed the din, his gaze blazing a fire over Annalise’s body. “…on the innocent.”
Hands clasped the girls’ arms. They screamed as they were pinned to the table. Tonight would be one to be remembered, indeed.
