As he said, she was idiotic, a child, inexperienced. Once the door was closed, Aethyra nodded numbly, raising her chin so that her friend might rub the strange paints from her skin. Locking eyes with the other girl, she suddenly sniffled, feeling a droplet run down her cheek. Furrowing her brow, she reached her finger up and wiped at it, though another soon took its place. It was not blood, but water running down her face, leaking from her eyes. Confusion and shock blasted across the heir's face, and she stared at the servant girl.
