The Princess of the Southern Kingdom had raven black hair that sparkled with highlights like the stars of the night sky. Her deep brown eyes exuded warmth and comfort and contained their own flecks of starlight within, and her immaculate skin was tanned to rich shades as if coated in flawless bronze.
The Princess of the Eastern Kingdom had bright auburn hair that danced with the vibrancy and hues matching the flames of a hearth warming fire. Her eyes were the flashing green of perfectly cut emeralds and her fair and flawless skin had freckles that looked as if each were painted in place to perfection.
The gorgeous, intellectual and charming young lady’s specialty was as a chef. For her gift, she presented the Young Prince with several courses and selections. Ingredients both mundane and exotic were combined into flavors each more delectable than the last and each dish was as beautiful to behold as it was flavorful to eat.
The Young Prince and the Eastern Princess discussed the details of her gifts, traded stories of their pasts, learned about shared goals for their futures, and lost track of the day in many and varied discussions of everything from minor happenings to lofty ideals.
Finally, on the prescribed day, the Young Prince made the only choice he could.
