Jezebel-The Sleeping Beauty(Part 14)
(Richard and Anne opened their eyes.)
It was an emotional moment John never dared dream would happen.
He embraced his father, who was wearing a royal fur mantle of lapin.
'I feel like a little kid.' They broke down in tears, in each other’s arms.
'Those wall clocks worked to jolt you out of dreamland with big alarms.
The happiness in the family was clear in their massive smiles,
But the queen said, ' I'm as tired as walking five hundred miles.'
They described how this meeting has made them be complete.
Frederick left them for an intimacy talk liking to be discreet.
'I can’t get out of bed’; said Anne, ‘I have a weird sensation in my legs.’
Freda came into the room saying, ‘I cooked for you bacon and eggs.'
'I can't eat with these shaky, weak arms, and I have a stomach pain.'
'Taking care of your needs is so hard, ' ‘From meat, I must abstain.'
Jezebel came into the room, ‘my dear mother, how do you feel? '
'My eyes are blurry, and I can't see you. ‘To pray for you I kneel.'
‘I feel so light-headed, foggy, and faint. I'm thirsty, and I want to sleep, '
Said Richard. ‘I hear you, my dear father, and I began to weep.'
(After four months, in the castle, people were ready again for the wedding.)
The Archbishop was committed to keeping the wedding confidential.
Thus, the religious ceremony and the dinner were quintessential.
'If I could stop that misfortune happening to her, ’ the groom thought.
'As soon as a baby will come into the family, things will change a lot! '
(Mary recovered, and came to the wedding. She embraced the bride. After that, he talked with Anne.)
'I should recognize there were some moments, when I felt as giving up.
I spiraled down in a whirlpool of sadness, and life was as a death cup.
I felt backed behind a wall.It was nowhere to run, and no reason to move.
Then, I was forced to do things I would normally fiercely disapprove.
Beneath its charming, the evilness manipulates, and destroys people
For its amusement, but its history is reddened in Surah's steeple
I lost my hope that the world, this imperfect place, can be good someday,
But I felt better than before, when I heard you're well, and I began to pray.'
(Anne replied to Mary.)
I think the feeling of disappointment that started in Surah's mind,
And slipped down to her soul was the result of being spiritually blind.
The knowledge that she had been wrong seeped into her bone,
And it wasn't a world to collapse, but a woman to become a stone.
(After two years, Pauline was talking with Freda and Eda, while preparing the dinner.)
'In the cave, there are skeletons of people who died under strange
Circumstances and the entrance of this grotto had to suffer a change.'
'Once, a friend of mine heard some cries of some bat creatures.
They can snatch kids. ‘An expression of fear crossed Eda's features.
'Their bodies are black, though their wings are dark brown or red.
Their lower jaws contain serrated teeth. They’re big, people said.'
'It's only a demon having red lights on the eyes making them glow.
It becomes active, when the dandelion flowers the seeds start to blow.'
'I heard that a creature as no other one was painted on the wall.
In fact, it was a huge bat creature. Bats still exist, but they're small.'
'Did you hear that Surah died? She had burned scars all over body.
In the burning castle she wore a dress, which was cheap and shoddy.'
(Frederick was talking with Jezebel.)
Jezebel sat softly on a jutting rock near the old cave’s lake.
In that fine damp mist, as usual, she wanted to take a break.
Frederick came to see her, carrying his little son in his arms,
‘I'm in love with you and still deeply captivated by your charms.’
’ The castle has an open natural entrance and a bridge over the lake.’
‘I gave the poor people a half of the treasure for your father’s sake.
Clayton came to hand Anne the blamed castle's keys telling her
That Surah died in his arms. Clayton said, '' I loved her, but we were
Two lonely people in search of a lost happiness. It seems that it was
Not helpful. Now, I go to live in a monastic community because
I want to know the stages of becoming a monk. It has been a while
Since I took the time to find out about God. ‘He went out with a smile.
(Pauline and Freda were in the kitchen of the royal castle. Pauline looked out the window, and saw Clayton leaving the castle.)
'I've always thought that Clayton was a mysterious figure as a crow.'
'He has always loved Surah. He's not able to live without her, now.'
'But where is doctor Fox? ’ ‘Who’s this doctor? ' 'Nobody exactly knows.’
'Freda, it is said that the secrets lose all their power if they expose.'
