On the eve of her marriage to Cygnus, Druella met her lover for what she wholly intended to be the last time.

"I love you so, Druella…" Abraxas murmured, his silken breath brushing against her skin. His tongue flicked out to touch the shell of her ear, and that most meagre of actions caused Druella to melt against him, gazing into his sapphire eyes.

"I love you," she whispered. Her voice sounded melodious even to her own ears. "But I must marry…"

"But you need not abandon love…"

He swept her into his arms, kissing her so deeply that fireworks burst behind her eyes.
