It was the strangest wedding ceremony you could possibly imagine. Picture me, a princess, making my vows to a Crab who sat on a golden cushion wearing a golden robe!

On our wedding night, he revealed his true identify. He is a Man by night, a Crab by day, and an Eagle whenever he wishes. A man of many dimensions. I could not be happier!
