At Dawn Came Love (Part V)

Marriages for such beauty wrapped in wealth is

determined by men. Speaking to a male outside her

family required permit from dame or sire. Her friends

are her sisters. Brothers are hastily dispatched to

unisex schools to keep the separation secure. Coming

of age holidays become showcase moments for the

coming-out parade to join society, an advertisement

of a lady dressed in taffeta and lace and the societal

fashion gloves nearly to the shoulder. For more skin to

be exposed meant apocalyptic ruin. The broach at her

throat broadcasts all kinds of danger and beware

warnings.
