"Maybe we should give up. It's getting late." Ben suggested. The sun had already begun to set. Lizzie looked up at him sadly. Ben and Lizzie had been searching for the फूल for two hours and hadn't even come close. Lizzie turned around to keep looking, when she heard a thud behind her. She turned around to see Ben on the ground. He was a bit clumsy but Lizzie found it cute. Now she could see a faint glowing coming out of the corner of her eye.
"Ben, we found it!" Lizzie shrieked. She ran over to him, put her arms around his neck, and kissed him. Then she ran over to the flower. Ben looked confused for a moment but he then got up to शामिल होइए her. They just stared at it for a minute. Ben looked over at Lizzie and कहा "You ready?" Lizzie looked back at him and nodded. She walked over and delicately picked a petal off of the फूल and wrapped it gently in her handkerchief. She looked at him again, unsure what to do. This was so complex. She should have been excited to get the फूल and take it घर to her father, but there was something else. She wanted to get back to her father but she didn't want to leave Ben. There was a small piece of her thinking about staying with him. No she told herself. She shook the thought out of her head and decided to focus on getting home.
"Ben, I need to get घर my father needs me." Ben's eyes looked sad but then he slowly nodded. "I understand. Let me do one और thing for आप though."
Lizzie wondered why, no matter how hard she tried, she could never get away from a castle. Now she was walking in the Coronian palace courtyard with the only स्रोत of light coming from the moon.
"Ben, what are we doing here? Aren't we going to get in trouble." Ben looked back and smiled.
"Nah. Anyways, I work here."
"You work in the palace?"
He smiled again. Gosh that could make Lizzie's दिल stop. "Well not technically. I'm a stable boy." Then he walked over to a stall and picked out a horse. "This will get आप back to your father faster."
"Oh Ben," Lizzie said.
"Don't worry about it. Just try to get it back to me okay? The king isn't going to like it that I sent away one of his horses."
"Alright," Lizzie said. She could get one of the servants at the palace to deliver the horse. That would be no problem. The problem for Lizzie would be leaving Ben.
Ben had walked Lizzie to the edge of Corona where they had had their नाव ride and searched for the flower.
"Well," he said. "I guess this is it."
"I guess so," Lizzie replied sadly. Ben gave her the reigns and Lizzie felt a jolt rush up her. She grabbed Ben's face in her hands and started to किस him. At first he was shocked but then he started to किस her back softly. This all was to perfect for Lizzie. चुंबन under the moonlight द्वारा a river with the man she had fallen in प्यार with in less than a day... Then Lizzie pulled away and whispered "I have to go."
Ben gave her one और small किस and then helped her onto the horse. Lizzie couldn't look back. She was wondering if she was making the right choice but then she remembered her father and she knew that she had made the right choice.
