The Forest Maiden

Lila kneels down before him, her king of the forest. She clings to him as he leans down taking the back of her head in his hands, and places a soft kiss upon her forehead. Lila closes her eyes as the forest begins to awake. Vines appear on her face as her hair grows longer, her clothes shift colors to look like the leaves.

“Please do not leave me…again.”

“I must…but I will return. You must rest for dawn approaches. I will wake you with a kiss when I return.”

“But…I need you m’lord.”

“Shhh…guard the forest…my beautiful fairy maiden.”
