Of all the new ladies-in-waiting appointed at the court, this particularly beautiful young creature had caught the nobleman’s eye. She glows with joy at his attentions, her newfound place in this world. The lush gold choli that blends in with the fair skin, reveals rather than conceals the torso in all the fullness of her youth. Her alluring decolletage is practically naked but for the layers of gold and pearls and jewels that are wound around it, all the way up to the line and crown of her jet-black hair.
The one bewitched by her is a young, handsome man himself. It had thrilled him to find her on his couch the moment he stepped into the room. As the seductress whisks away her brocaded aanchal, he could no longer teeter on anticipation and seizes her by the wrist.
