Thank you, Internet!

4000 words today...I'll take it. 

And, as promised...meet Callie.
One would have to be severely touched to think of Lady Calpurnia Hartwell as anything close to Cleopatra. For one thing, Callie had never laid a man low with her beauty—something Cleopatra was extraordinarily skilled at doing. No, Cleopatra did not share Callie’s ordinary brown hair and ordinary brown eyes. Nor could the Queen of Egypt be described as plump. Nor could Callie imagine Cleopatra ever being left on the edge of a ballroom for the entirety of a ball. And, she was certain, there was absolutely no evidence that the Queen of Egypt wore a lace cap.

Unfortunately, the same things could not be said about Callie.

My sacrifice to the Internet gods.
