Le Dauphin dans le Jardin
The ground began to rumble and the Prince's life flashed before his eyes.
As he ran through the garden a pillar loosened itself from the earth and toppled towards him.
With two fingers he grasped the staff that only moments before she had tied her ribbon to.
He could not go back for her now.
He would never be able to find her in the veil of darkness that now covered the land.
Would she know where to hide?
On he ran as the garden walls crumbled around him.
And then he heard her.
She was calling his name.
