My Horse For A Kingdom

May 2, 2014

The Sea Horse. Photo and sculpture by Jeffro Uitto; used by permission.

The Kingdom of Viendra was rich and bountiful. The marble palace was grand and graceful, filled with wonderous artwork. Princess Sharia ruled there. She had a closet full of gorgeous clothing and lots of sparkling jewelry. A multitude of servants eagerly catered to her every whim. The days slid by peacefully with no more taxing decision than choosing what to wear each morning. Bards composed ballads praising her beauty, kindness, and wisdom. She was courted by the flower of its knighthood. Quests were set out upon and noble deeds were preformed in her name and for her honor. Everything moved at a slow and steady pace, there was always time for romance and love. It was perfect.

“C’mon Sharia, let’s go already!” Her boyfriend Steve yelled loudly from the beach, breaking up her lovely vision.

She swore silently, rudely returned to a hectic, frantic, high-tech world. She slid down from the back of the driftwood horse sculpture.
