The bride of the white night - Chapter 2
Aisa entered the bridal room with a heavy heart.
The room was bright even though there were no lamps or candles lit. It was enough to roll up the curtains on the windows.
‘It’s already past eight o’clock…’ Aisa wondered. It was a strange thing. Aisa grew up in a temple located in the northern part of the Kingdom of Cordo, so it was very strange to see the sun rising at this time of the season. Since this is far north of the temple, shouldn’t the sun go down earlier? I think it would be normal if it was dark now…. However, the present Ainar Castle was as bright as broad daylight.
Aisa realized it was because of the phenomenon that she had only read in the book of the temple:
‘Interesting.’ This is the first time Aisa had seen a phenomenon that existed only as knowledge. If she was still oered confined to the temple until her death, it would have been a sight she’d never have seen. Aisa walked towards the window as if possessed and took o the white veil that was covering her eyes.
She did this even though she knew very well that she should not take it o until the groom took it o in the middle of the night.
The window of the new room was quite large for a castle in the north, and even the shutters were made of glass, so you could see the outside view very well. It must have been built without any gaps in the frame, and even though she was right next to the window, she was not very cold.
Aisa did not dare to open the window, seeing frozen moisture in the shape of snow crystals on the edge of the glass. She just sat in the hard chair next to the window and looked out. A pure white scene spread out outside the window. The reality in front of her seemed unrealistic. As its name suggests, the White Head Mountains to the north of Ainar Castle were said to be a mountain
with ice caps on its head throughout the four seasons. However, the present White-Head mountain was all white, not only at the top but all the way to the bottom.
Of course, it wasn’t just a distraction. At the bottom of the mountains blanketed under snow, the Crescent Lake that surrounds the castle was frozen over and hidden by snow. The white birch forest that hugs the lake and extends up to the middle of the White Head Mountain looks like it was carved out of ice.
It is truly a beautiful sight. To the point where Aisa lost her train of thought and stared at it for a while. “It’s a lonely landscape.”
Is it because of his situation that he came to be kicked out to this land? ‘No, that’s not it.’ The fingertips that were holding the
wedding dress tensed. To the groom who had not yet entered the new room, Aisa had something to say…
Before they slept together – before their marriage was complete, she had to tell him. But what kind of expression will her husband make when he hears Aisa’s confession? What did he look like?
She tried to recall, but throughout the ceremony, she avoided his gaze as much as possible. With the tension, fear, and guilt so strong, she couldn’t remember it properly. So it was dicult for she to imagine the expression on my husband’s angry face. To tell her secret in front of him.
“Actually, I…” Aisa was in the carriage that arrived here after driving for about a fortnight. She lived a life that was no dierent from abuse under the guise of poverty, and her body was thin and weak. Deep fatigue and stress dragged her into an almost faint sleep.
In this confused state, Aisa must slowly confess a secret to her husband. To a man with a cloudy face.
