(by Jay, added on 30 May 2012 03:26 PM)

The dust from her galloping mair spread throughout the land of (What's it called again?), leaving it as a sculpture, men and women poised in mid strike, throttle or tumble, lances suspended in mid air, and though their eyes burned with rage it could not lift the curse caused by their disobedience. Years afterwards a prince, while taking his morning ride, strayed from his team and journeyed a fortnight finding himself face to face with this splended sight. Once a Prisoner of war himself, he removed a piece of parchment, quill and ink from his wastecoat and wrote a letter to his father, which he tied loosely around the neck of a raven.

Suddenly the queen, her mother stepped between her and the object of her love, and forebad her to never touch it. The princess went to her bed and weaped. Night after night this same occurred.

The princess excitedly raced to the garden where her knight waited. Throwing her arms around him, she professed her love, and kissed his lips. Suddenly, an awful blood curdling scream was heard throughout the palace.
