53. Question III

“I think we should start returning,”

the princess suggested.


Mansur began rowing again.

“You mean you'd marry anyone?”

he asked stiffly.


/Seems like men don't like

to be just ‘anyone’./


“Not anyone. Only one”

“who can help my brother.”


/And mentioning qualities like

this one makes things even worse./


He frowned. “Hm!”


As the boat moored, the king got

on a wooden platform.

He offered his hand to Oenothera.


Taking the hand and climbing on

the platform, she said quietly

so that only Mansur could hear:

“Though, what I meant was”

         “marrying someone

                   “I didn't like.”


He only silently looked at her back,

as she went along the platform

to the lakeshore.
