“What?” Esmeralda asks in surprise as Jasmine plucks back the coin she’s just handed to an old woman. “I thought you wanted to know your fortune.”
“And you wanted to be sure,” Esmeralda's voice drops to a whisper, “it didn’t include simply being your father’s pretty, little doll to marry off to the highest bidder and was a life of your own choosing full of adventure and freedom.”
“I did.” Her fingers slip along Esmeralda's waist as she returns the coin.
Jasmine puts an apple in the old woman’s still out-stretched hand before grabbing Esmeralda's hand and pulling her away. “I did want to know all that,” she admits once they are alone again, her hands moving up to Esmeralda's beautiful, dark face, “but I already know my fortune.”
“You do, do you?”
“Oh, yeah.” Jasmine grins. She cups her face in her hands and meets her gaze. “I’m rich, far richer than any Princess still clinging to her Sultan father would be.”
“And the jewel I hold is far better than any that can be traded by men for money or fame.”
“You know it is,” Jasmine insists and, dropping all pretenses, kisses her long and deep. The wealth she has could never have been hers while she stayed at her father’s palace and is indeed a jewel far richer and more beautiful than any man will ever know. It’s her Esme, and she wouldn’t trade her for everything, or anything, in the world.
