"Will you stay with me?"
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful Princess. Her father, the King, wasn’t a good man.
She grew up seeing a lot of women coming and going, trying to be the new Queen but the King would just use them and not fall in love with anyone.
The Princess knew it was up to her to save her father of himself. She tried night and day to find a way to do that. And all her mistakes meant that the peasants she chose to help her ended up dead.
She got tired of trying and trying. Why didn’t men stop sinning? Why couldn’t she do more?
Why didn’t the King love her enough?
Until one day it was enough. The Princess finally understood, men are not there to be trusted. Especially the unfaithful King.
So she used everything she learnt to stop him from sinning. It meant death, fear and pain, but it was how it should be.
But then a noble Knight showed up. He was fair and wanted to help. “I can’t trust you now”, the Princess whispered. “I know”. And for the first time a man didn’t try to fix her. Even when it was too late for her.
Then she said, “Hold me”. “I won’t let go”, he promised.
“Will you stay with me?”
From Criminal Minds 4x16, “Pleasure Is My Business”:
“How could your wife have ever left someone like you? You’re the first man I ever met who didn’t let me down.”
