A warm breeze ruffled the surface of the pond, sending a shiver of anticipation across her skin. Only here did she have freedom. Only here did peace battle her fears. Sarah slipped the thin straps of the nightdress off her shoulders, letting the sheer garment fall to the ground as she stepped closer to the water. No matter, let him guard her virtue.
