Breaking the Chains…
“The legend goes that a princess, cursed to live as a demon’s wife, was chained by him on the shore. Her tears during his demonic acts flowed through to the sea, creating this path where you stand.”
The tour guide sounded like a recording to Kate.
“What happened to the princess?”
“They say she died on the second night, unable to take the torture, leaving the chain behind.”
Kate took them out from her purse.
“Time to break the chains,” she said, signing the petition for divorce. It had been two years.
“Better late than never,” her sister agreed, smiling.
