Did they live happily ever after? (1 min read)

There once was a castle, where lived a little Prince. He’d always been told that one day a beautiful Princess would turn up and sweep him off his feet.

‘But…I’m ugly!!’ He looked pensive.

‘She’d have eyes only for your heart, Prince.’

Years passed. He grew up to be a nice man with an unsightly face.

One fine dusk a girl arrived at his door. Enamored with her breathtaking beauty, he proposed to her; her cheeks reddened. Together they chanted the promise of eternity.

He had eyes for her beauty, while she had eyes only for his castle.
