This is the Queen’s True Story – Written as a Fantasy
This is the part of the Queen’s life where her life should have become enchanted and where the Enchanted Castle truly should have became the “Enchanted” Castle.
After three Kings in her life and tragedy hath befall them all, the Queen was determined to spend her life alone. Until one night………….
During a summer party in the Land of Enchantment, a friend come running to the Queen’s side, saying, “You just must meet my friend. He just came back home.”
That is how it started!!!!
Sir Dale took her hand and said, “Care to dance??”
The Queen placed her hand in his, was escorted to the dance floor. The Knight danced with ease, and sang a song as he spun the Queen across the dance floor. Unknown to the Queen until later that eve, the Knight was another’s escort for the evening.
In later days the Queen hath seen the Knight at gala festivals, but she hath never told of her feelings to this Knight. During a later gala festival, the Knight hath much ale he doth consume!!! This Knight, Sir Dale, doth tipped his crown, and doth conceal the Queen and himself behind the brim. And gently whispered, “When thou art free, I would like to date thee.”
The Queen thinking the ale was talking and knowing by this time she was nine years his elder said, “Doth thou know how old I am? Sir Dale responded, “Yes, and it matters NOT, I really want to be with thee.”
Then he kissed her softly. The party resumed, as the Knight danced and sang to the Queen when he could. On the morrow, the Queen doth ride to the realm of the Knight, to ask a simple question. “Were ye serious last night, or was it the Ale talking?”
The Knight’s response was, “Whatever I said last night was true, the Ale just gave me courage to say them to thee!”
What was supposed to be a short visit, but lasted for hours as the couple talked about many things.
They got married in the Sunken Gardens of the Land of Enchantment
This was a gala event in the Land of Enchantment.
Now if there was an ending it should have been
They Lived happily ever after……
But that is NOT HOW IT IS so the story will continue
