Could hardly stand in the them, the waters, so cold. Lifting up the beautiful long white gown with one hand and placing the other on his strong shoulder she stands by his side admiring the clear waters and the fast moving fish. “We come here everyday, I always wonder whose boat is that?”
He smiles at her, “She must be a lost one, perhaps awaiting someone to take her to her destiny on the other side of the waters”
“What’s on the other side of waters?”
Her sparkling eyes were stars in day light. Her hair dancing to the winds of the forest whispered in her ear. “Ask him! The moment has come!”
“Do you believe in signs, prince?”

They would sail across the world to the land of ultimate happiness and love, a utopia anybody could ever dream of.
Time ran in hours but nothing changed within her. He probably must be preparing for the voyage said her heart. Time ran in hours and her heart wore a double face, hope and despair met each other. Time ran in hours and she sank by the waters looking through the think green cover hoping he would appear like a ray of light in a dark tunnel. The nature gradually dropped the veil. The boat wore a dismal look yet again dissapointed by another duo. Yet again, another prince charming hadn’t returned. Yet again, the waters hadn’t wet another long white velvet gown….
