Prince in Search of Flowers

I searched the world over for the daughter of the flower queen. After a year, my horse died of exhaustion. I didn’t bother to find another horse. I went on looking, on foot.

I came to the hut of an old man. He said to go down the road for a year. I did, and I came to the hut of a very old man. He said to go down the road for a year. I did. And I came to the hut of a man who must be the oldest man on earth.

In all that time, and in all the places I have been, I have not seen flowers. A dragon has captured the flower queen’s daughter, and if I do not find her, the land will be forever laid to waste.
