I gasp as I'm tossed back into sea, the water cold and unforgiving. I scream as he smiles, taking the ladder from the boat. I cry as the waves toss me under, back into the nightmare. I jerk back awake as I try to control my raspy breathing, grateful for not inhaling salt. He sleeps. My husband sleeps, completely oblivious to the world around him. Tears spill down my face as I absentmindedly touch my wedding ring. It's cursed. It's the reason I'm having nightmares every night. Him. I stare at him, donning a profound hatred for everything. My harebrained mother, for forcing this marriage onto my family. My father, for selling me into royalty.
