Searlus and the Sailor
Only one young woman stayed longer than a night, but she too left the castle soon enough with only her pittance for trying and no memory of her time there. My life was already over when my husband died, and Papa is such a frail man... I couldn’t care for him - or myself, any longer and beauty was all I had. It was either the brothel or try to woo the monstrous King Searlus.
