Story Telling Sunday

Today is the first Sunday in the month, and that means it is Time to Tell a Tale. Lots of us so appreciate Sian for hosting this and there will be lots of exciting stories told today.

Once upon a time there was a Knight in shining armour, he had come to rescue the maiden who was so sad. This maiden was sad not because of a dragon, but because of a older man who had wooed her and captured her and then rejected her and left her out in the cold.
Now the Knight had heard what had happened to the maiden, he didn't like to see her cry, he had a very tender heart and so he thought I'll go and speak to her and invite her out, perhaps that will make her feel better.
He took her on a bus (he didn't have a charger of his own) and they went to the zoo. It was a lovely day and the maiden began to feel secure again. Next time he took her for a walk on the common, and showed her so much kindness and tenderness, he even kissed the palm of her hand, something that gave her such a thrill.


They went to the cinema and saw Donovan's Reef, I'm not sure how much of the film the Knight saw as he had something special on his mind and when they came out of the cinema he asked the maiden to marry him. He had known almost from the start that he had found the girl of his dreams and had told a friend that she was the one for him.

This story was triggered by Sian's own story so thank you Sian.
why not climb up to her place High in the Sky and find more stories to read

So it appears that your "Once upon a time" tale ends appropriately too with "and they lived happily ever after." Thanks for sharing!
