Dancing Princess Turns Into Stone Queen -- Part 5

5.

Soon, the king proclaims the soldier

To be his heir. He hands him the key

To the princesses’ room and bid him

Choose the one to his liking.

The old soldier’s pride is satisfied:

He sees the look of shame on the bashful

Cheeks of all the princesses…but one.

The eldest looks straight into his eye,

Throws back her neck, pouting.

That I shall have – he cries.
