Yang was not poor. She refused to acknowledge it. She had her daily bread, she had clothes that weren't holey or dirty, and she had a roof over her head. But Yang was no fool. She hunted day and night, week after week; she hauled stone in town and trained horses for lords with better things to do- she worked for that bread and those clothes, and she never let herself forget that she and her father were the only things keeping her little sister comfortable; belly full of bread, cleaned shoes and dresses, and all the freedom that ignorant bliss can buy you.
Blake was not poor. She knew this like she knew how to chew; like she knew so thoroughly how to swallow; like she knew how to stomach despicability. Oh yes, Blake had it all, alright. She had gowns, and crowns, and gossamer ropes with which to practice her nooses. But Blake was no fool. Nor was she so desperate for reprieve that she'd stoop so low; being a prisoner of war in a foreign castle was one thing, it was another to be married to your captor. For all her supposed title should have granted her, and for having much... Blake had nothing. Nothing but her common sense. And her common sense told her to run.
