Lady Silver of the Spring – p.2

April 4, 2012 at 4:19 pm 1 comment

The girl looked down at the ground and saw a simple silver ring. It bore no insignia or stone, it was just a plain band of shiny metal; but she was sure the boy on the horse would miss it, so she picked it up, vowing to keep it safe until she chanced to see him again.

The next day, the girl came down to the spring as usual to fetch her water, and she took a little longer than was her custom, in case the boy on the horse might be near. The wood was quiet that morning, however, and after a while she grew impatient and went home.

Many days came and went, and there was no further sign of the boy or his horse or any other hunters who might know him. The seasons passed and she forgot about him. On a particularly hot day near the end of summer, the girl decided to wet her hair in the spring before going back up the mountain, and when she leaned over, the silver ring fell from the shirt pocket she’d tucked it into so long ago, sinking quickly to the bottom of the water.
