Chapter 12

The slave girl eventually calmed herself against the wall. Sitting on her straw mattress. She had wanted some release, but only found herself teary eyed. The absurdity of her situation only made her the sadder. She’d fallen for a roman lady, an unrequited love. How did this happen? Was it all her fault? She shook away the questions, sighing in exasperation.

“Dilla?” came a familiar voice.

“Sister,” answering her.

“Is something the matter?” the sister asked from behind the curtains. When silence hung for a moment too long, the other girl pushed past the doorway and looked inside. She glanced about and finally found her sibling sitting on her mattress. “You’ve been crying,” she said a bit concerned.

Sestalia’s bedservant nodded to her sister somberly. She tried to hold back the tears.

“What’s the matter? What’s she done now?” asked the concerned sister.

“Nothing…” the girl said to an unconvinced stare. “Truly, she’s not done anything.”

“Then, what is it?”

Canissa looked away somberly. Her sister walked up in front of her.

“Tell me,” the sister insisted.

The bedservant looked up to her sister, she couldn’t help but burst into tears again. She felt like she was betraying her. All for an impossible love.

“Tell me,” the sister said again.

“I’ve fallen for her.”

“The master’s fiancee?” the sister asked. A slow nod was her answer. “We don’t have time for this, Canissa. Our food has been ready for some time now,” she said, starting to walk towards the door again. She looked back to her sister, noticing she’d made no effort to move. She didn’t want to believe the absurdity. Let alone that her sister was a tribas. A lesbo? she thought to herself before shaking away the notion. “Come, we have to hurry.”

Canissa sighed again, nodding as she stifled any remaining snivels. She knew her sister was right. Pushing herself to her feet, the thoughts would have to wait. They both hurried out of the room.
