Lady Silver of the Spring – p.1

April 3, 2012 at 3:30 pm 2 comments

Long ago there was a young girl who lived in a house on top of a mountain. She was as sure-footed as a goat and would climb down to a spring every day to fetch water, and then climb up again holding the heavy pail without spilling a drop.

One day as she was filling her pail at the spring, she heard a noise and looked up. Across the water, almost hidden by trees, was a boy her own age sitting on a strong gray horse. He called out to her, “My horse is thirsty. May I water him in your spring, Lady?”

The girl was shocked, as no one had ever called her anything other than ‘girl’ in her whole life. She felt happy, but she didn’t quite know why. “Tis not mine, my Lord, even though I never have seen another soul around. Let your beast drink his fill.”

The horse walked up and began to drink. The boy smiled down at the girl, and began to fidget in the saddle. He was about to address her again when suddenly from off in the wood a horn sounded. “I must get back to the hunt. Many thanks, Lady of the Spring,” he said, and turned his horse around, galloping off at top speed.

The girl scratched her head and laughed. As she bent to finish filling her pail she saw something shining on the ground where the horse had just been standing.

    I think I know the thought processes that led to this one:-) A very lovely beginning. I wonder what the shiny thing on the ground is? Does this horse excrete golden coins similar to the way the goose laid golden eggs? LOL
