The knight placed his helmet to one side of the table. He checked to see if the room was all clear. The door creaked, this made him jump.
A young woman with rosy cheeks, and sparkling eyes walked in. The knight was lost for words.
She asked the knight what he was doing in the kitchen. He stared at the woman and bowed his head.
‘‘Please, forgive me. I didn’t mean to cause any trouble.’’
The young lady looked at him. Who did this guy think he was.
From his armor and attire she guessed that he was a knight. Why was he acting nervous around her?
The knight didn’t know what else to say to the maiden. She asked him if he was looking for something or someone.
He shook his head. Then got ready to leave. But each time he tried to pass, she also moved at the same time & in the same direction that he went.
They laughed. He stopped and said to her that she had the most beautiful eyes he had ever seen. She blushed and smiled.
The knight bent his head lower and asked her what her name was. He moved closer to her, their noses almost even touched.
She thought she was going to faint because he was standing so close, and stealing her air. He brushed his hand across her forehead to place her loose hair back in place.
Trulida felt her heart begin to race. The knight moved to the side and waved goodbye.
She stood in the kitchen wondering what just happened. Who was this stranger that had stolen her heart?
