“It is truly wondrous that you put the ring on, and not only that, but inscribed the runes onto the bottom of the spring to bring the curse to its end,” Melinda said to the girl. “I owe you everything.”

The girl blushed then, unaccustomed as she was to having so much attention paid to her. “I only wanted to make sure the ring was returned to its rightful owner,” she said.

“Yes, it is curious to me how such a precious item was lost here in the first place.” Melinda turned again to glare at the prince. “Surely it was an accident, and your Highness must have been very concerned to find it gone?” She enjoyed watching his discomfort, and smiled. “After all, without it, there would have been no hope of lifting the curse, and you could never truly be King.”

“Now see here, it’s a wonder I didn’t lose the blasted thing before now!” The prince lifted his chin, and sat up straight in the saddle. “It’s no longer our concern, anyway, and good riddance!”

Just then, a puff of yellow smoke appeared before them, and a voice said, “The ring may be gone, mortal, but I am not.”
