Traveling in twos at all times. Christina and Agnes head to the fields to begin their morning duties.
Christina, I'm leaving. I can't stand to be abused like we are anymore. We can only handle so much and I refuse to settle here like the rest of you.
Agnes married Commander Phelps in 1879. An in love, young girl and heedless that she was his third wife. In the beginning, Agnes was compliant and felt it was her duty to stay faithful to the man she fell in love with. As third wife she was assigned to be the handmaid, but to still reproduce. She had no family to disapprove of this hell she was about to face. Ten years later and there an uproar in the community began. Women were stepping forward, leaving their roles in the regime and finally changing the stigma, "women are property." Agnes knew she had to leave. She was being physically, mentally and sexually abused by the man she fell in love with. She could not believe her life had panned out this way. But she couldn't do it alone. Upon arriving in Minto she was placed with another wife to be her partner, Christina, she needed her help.
Commander Phelps gulped. He glanced at his own reflection in his marble fire place. He was a conniving yet intelligent man. Handsome and so charming but such a sad man.
Good day, Commander. I am here to get The Ceremony itinerary in order.
