“I'm glad to see you, your majesty!”

“Oh, I am sorry for that!”

the regent apologized

“I have so many things to take care of.

As if I dare to ignore the king

from our neighbouring country

to which we are so indebted.”


“Just shut up already,”

said the king to himself

and answered nothing.


“You know what we are here for,”

he began, “So what is your answer?”


“Of course we are giving

one of our princesses in marriage

to you, your majesty!” said the regent.

“We think Oenothera

for you.”

with ability to control Water!”


“And she can!

              Isn't it great?” he smiled.

“I will tell my beloved niece

to meet you tomorrow.”


“I can't tell anything against it,”

the king thought,
