"Wedded? Oh..." I smiled, biting my lip. Then, I realized what Keiyko had said, "Wait- devil? No! He was really my lover, Keiyko." I inched closer to him, and he grabbed my waist. I sighed, shaking my head, "I don't want to marry you." The crowd gasped, and some started to cry. Keiyko collapsed to his knees. "What's going on?" "You don't understand, woman. If I win the battle and you do not accept my proposal, all three of us will be banished from the village."
