The moment she had been groomed for all her life was imminent. Lillian was shaking with anticipation, but she tried to hide the telltale signs by sitting on her hands to squash the tremors. She mustn’t worry so much. It would all be perfect and wonderful.
Dear Lord, in just a few moments she’d meet her future husband. He would marry her, he would be loving and caring, and he would be the most wonderful man that ever existed on this earth. In turn, she would adore him, worship him, and eventually she would love him with all her heart.
Nobody expected her to love him right away, but she would in time. Wasn’t that what her mother had told her? After all, she was just a silly girl, she didn’t understand the wisdom behind the choices made for her. Choices made by men. They always knew what was right. It was not her place to questions their motives, or those of her future husband for that matter. All she knew was that this great man had agreed to marry her, although she was a nobody, a young girl from down south who knew nothing of the world. She only knew life as it was on her father’s secluded Bright Desert Light compound, hidden somewhere in the mountain range that separated Arizona and New Mexico.
