Once upon a time there was a little princess more beautiful than the sunrise and the shining stars in the sky. The sparkle in her eyes was unusual and magnetic. She was unpredictable, intriguing and captivating. Everyone in the whole kingdom admired her unconventional capacity to inflame kindness in people’ hearts. She was simply something else!
Meanwhile, there was a mousy-looking peasant boy living a life of despair. He has lost his way because believed in love that pure and passionate to be beyond of his reach. He has been waiting forever and a day to witness a miracle likely to open his heart and plants the seed of hope for something extraordinary. One beautiful day the boy unexpectedly laid an eye on the princess and a couple of tears gently trickled down on his cheeks. He has never seen an Angel before but truly believed in its appearance into his life to be marked by the universe itself. His heart awakened and his soul felt complete. The boy knew right away that she is out of this world. His heart was taken captive by the mere sight of her and he felt powerless to revolt against the enslaver. It was love so sweet and impossible. The boy swiftly realized that the princess personified a daydream unlikely to fulfill but his entire world was already irretrievably turned upside-down. Notwithstanding, the divine princess was not meant for his love. Her hand was promised to a prince from a kingdom far away. The boy was heartbroken. The light faded away and the darkness took its place in the boy’s eyes. His heart couldn’t stop bleeding for weeks. A moment of love changed his life forever but now only pain was poisoning his senses. The boy was determined to keep his distance and avoid nurturing any romantic thoughts. The affection probably was not even mutual due to her royal lineage and thereby he took great pains to eradicate any trace of love occupying his heart. It didn’t work, nothing tried ever worked. The boy was helpless in the face of such powerful feeling. His common sense was potent but appeared defenseless against what his heart yearned. He couldn’t function well and misery transformed into his new reality. As time progressed, the boy realized that immediate measures need to be considered. He has been awaiting the day to fall and the night to arise. Equipped with a decided heart, he went out rushing towards the highest peak nearby to judge the stars for his unbearable infatuation. He was firmly resolute to find salvation from the chain of love exhausting the last breath of his lungs. When arrived, the boy noticed the little princess sitting all alone with a head staring at the crystal blue sky. He gently approached and his back touched hers. No words were spoken and they did not have to. Rather, they just observed the sky and let their souls feel. A star fell down from heaven and landed in the boy’s arm. Tenderly he opened up the girl’s palm placing the shining star and with a trembling voice he uttered: “My heart is yours.”
Love doesn’t demand or restrict. Love is companionate and gentle. Love understands and gives with no strings attached. The boy never expected to be worthy of the girl’s affection and hold her hand anytime soon. He was after setting his soul free so can soar into the sky as an Angel he once fell for.
It is unknown what the fairy-tale further has to offer but one thing remains certain – The boy witnessed a living, breathing miracle and his existence was blessed to become magical for eternity and a day.
