Vindictive Vixen

You are asking me about what is the matter? I am not dancing with a woman who wants my head on a platter. That was a strange request she presented before the king. How could that brazen little vixen do such a thing? Upstairs, she is performing before many amazed eyes. I am here in the dungeon awaiting my inevitable demise. My cousin has been preaching out and about everywhere. Please try to find him and tell him to beware.

    WOW! I never though you'd be writing about Salome! She was following her mama's orders, but she could have taken a stand. Good write, Robert. I enjoyed this! :)
