Lover's Glade

Like Avalon to King Arthur, Lover's Glade was a secret solace for Siercon and Coral. Siercon searched long and hard, until he found the perfect place. The willow and falls provided exactly the natural magic he was looking for. He showed his love by toiling over several months to build her a secret garden in this spot. It was the perfect escape undisturbed by the harshness of the medieval world. The two of them swung under the weeping willow, and took naps on the sunny banks. They would swim in the cool falls with the swans and listen to the buzz of the hummingbirds. The young couple loved this tiny glade and always found new secrets or adventure; like the hidden path behind the waterfall, or the rope vine which swung out into the water. Today Siercon brought a picnic with Coral's favorite strawberry wine and caramel apples, some of which they shared with the squirrels and butterflies. Siercon then pulled out a tiny yet beautiful letter and read it to her from his heart as best he could with the sun setting down behind the little footbridge. Evening descended, and as the turtles and bunnies turned in for the night, the slow croaking of frogs gave ambiance as the lovers intertwined and fell asleep watching for shooting stars.
