I’m at 14,135 tonight.
At least they’re finally married. Of course, that does include the prologue. And the juicily satisfying ending for the step-mother. So maybe it didn’t take as long as I thought to get my beauty to “clean up” her beast (If you knew the lindorm story you’d have gotten that joke).
Next on the to-do list: prove he’s the crown prince (in place of everyone’s favorite princeling they watched grow-up) and our Beauty conceiving twins.
This is the thing I think of at every happily-ever-after: odds are the perfectly shaped heroine will be with-child within a year, and how will that change the sweet romantic picture we are fading out on?
