That Warm Smile



There was once a Princess, who lived a very stoic life. She resided over a small kingdom. The Princess was fair and very kind, she met many would be Princes, but none of them treated her properly. The Princess rejected them one after the other, feeling as if she would never fine her one true love. One day a Pleasant farmer came across the Princess in his travels, in town to sell his harvest. The Peasant was young and generous. He showed her the kindness that many of those before hadn't. The Princess was smitten with the Peasant, but his family needed him daily, so with but a gentle wave and a warm smile the Peasant left. A man she hardly knew, a man she had only heard his name once had captured her heart with his generosity. This left the Princess saddened. Desperate to find the Peasant, the Princess set out across the lands seeking the Peasant. She had left her safe castle and her pampered life to find what truly made her happy, love.

The Princess went from town to town asking about the Peasant, his name making her lips quiver as she imaged whispering it to him many times over. His warm smile being the one thing that kept her going! She was awestruck in her travels, never had she seen such beautiful and diverse lands before, surely traveling these roads would bring inner peace to any who constantly traveled it. 'It must be why he was always happy, even when he was so far from his family' she thought. From the gorgeous lakes and bright green forests to the purple mountains far off in the distance. The towns upon the road were filled with such nice people, none of them born with a silver spoon in mouth. 'It must've been what kept him so humble and tender, everyone must work together to live out here.' she thought, her mind painting a beautiful picture of her life with the Peasant. She traveled endlessly, only stopping to rest. As the days went on and she became closer to her love, her heart began to skip just thinking of his face.

The Princess had traveled long and far, and after many tireless weeks she had arrived at the town the Peasant was said to reside in. All those she spoke too knew of the man, but none wished to speak of him. This had puzzled the Princess. Why would the townsfolk act in such a way? She looked throughout the town, asking of the Peasant. Each time the people would grow quiet when she brought up the Peasant. Soon she was able to coax out the location of the Peasant's farm. With a bright smile upon her face she strolled through the town as happy as can be, making her way to the Peasant's farm. As she skipped along the road she thought of his warm smile and his beautiful name. Finally coming to the farm she saw two children working in the fields and a middle-aged couple on the porch. Stopping a step from the porch she introduced herself, the couple was surprised and honored to have the Princess visit them, but they were also confused as to why she was there. Skipping to the point, she let out the Peasant's name and wished to see him. The couple cringed and the middle-aged woman nearly broke into tears at mention of her son's name. The Princess didn't understand why the woman was crying. The man stood up and waved her to the door. Stepping into the doorway she could see inside the house, sitting on the mantle was a broken sword under his picture. The man turned to her and told her that his son had been killed by bandits protecting his parents and young siblings. The Princess was racked with sadness, the only man she actually loved was taken away and she could never have him back.

All that remained of the Peasant was the broken sword and the picture with the warm smile she fell in love with.
