The first rays of sunlight had already started their raise to
glory as young Michael began his walk home . The night had
passed by so fast . He could not believe dawn was only moments
away . After the events of that evening , he had wished the
night had never ended . It had start common enough . An evening
with old allies drinking , trading stories of war and the hunt ,
quickly turn to something completely different once she meet
them . Princess Hollie who had lived with the Queen and a
younger sister would often sneak out of the palace to adventure
with the young warriors of the realm . Princess Hollie and her
lady in waiting Valerie Of The Paths would accompany different
young squires traveling the landscape and attending social
functions . Michael , a Knight of modest origins was both proud
and very brave but it was his skills in war and the hunt that
often found him in the company of his elders . Many times the
missions were dangerous and the outcome often in doubt until
the last moments , but success after success had earned him
many accolade's and awards . On the nights the princess was in
his presence the adventures were never dangerous and keep
close to home ensuring her safety . This night had been
different , after a short trip to obtain drink and then another
to secure monetary interests . The young warriors meet the
Princess and her Lady for a night of controlled mayhem . His
thoughts of the beautiful Princess had always been those of
romance ( her beauty had long captured him ) But because of age
and humble upbringing , those thoughts had always been kept to
himself and his most trusted friends . After an evening of
drinks and games of chance at the Vision Of The New (a local
meeting place for travelers and locals both ) The Princess had
kissed the young knight and whispered to him her love for him .
His heart had raced and his speech stumbled with nerves as he
tried to remain composed .
