How Would You Feel?

I have a question that I'd like your feelings on:

You are a daughter of an Earl in 1559, you just boarded a ship to take you to your new husband, whom you have never met. You watched your mother's carriage disappear through the busy courtyard and then the ship's captain showed you to your quarters--a tiny bed surrounded by your trunks. He closes the door leaving you alone, staring at it.

How do you feel? What is the first thing you would do?


  1. I'm frightened. The first thing I would do is take something out of my trunks that has always made me feel safe and secure. I wouldn't want to feel so alone.

  2. I'm terrified and feel abandoned. First thing I would sit on my tiny bed and go through the, "Why me?" motions.

  3. I think I'd feel the same way as the other ladies. I'd be terrified, sad, scared of the unknown. I'd probably sink to the bed and cry. At least for a little bit. Then I'd set my resolve to make this work or run away, lol.

  4. I am up for the adventure. I wasn't in love with anyone in the Earl's-dom. I understand this a power match made in my father's interests. I honor him and vow to make the best of all that comes to me in my exciting future. Adrienne

  5. I'm with Adrienne! An adventurist at heart, I would daydreaming about my future romanticizing it into something it will never measure up to, maybe I'll arrive at my destination to find my new husband is handsome and adoring. I'll be the toast of town. Or perhaps I'll fall in love with a dashing sailor and cruise the seas with him fighting pirates and drinking in sunsets over the water.
    Then, I'll pull out my favorite leather bound journal and write it all down.
