Her dress glided in the wind as she made her entrance into the tavern.
Immediately, all eyes went to her in wonder and surprise at her appearance in such a place.
With her smiles still in tact; she sat on the empty chair and picked up the sodden slate from the table to read the menu.
A shadow loomed against her view and she looked up; smiling at the sight of a pair of sea green eyes.
The same eyes she had come to adore
“Are you sure you are in the right place, M’lady?” He asked, a playful smirk swept across his lips “tis not safe for a princess to wonder around unprotected”
“And whose to say I’m not without protection” she countered with a smirk of her own before producing a dagger with a simple design; something not fit at all for a princess to carry.
But it is a dagger she treasured dearly.
A dagger given to her by her beloved
Her beloved whose eyes sparkled with joy at the sight of his dagger in her hand.
