The Maple Tree

A myth submitted to the site by Daia Scarlet

China, China

Long time ago, there used to be a small maple tree growing near a very beautiful cliff which anyone could see a very beautiful sunset and sunrise. There used to be two kids. A girl and a boy who always played at the maple tree at night. They will be very busy in the morning till afternoon as they are the prince and princess from their own clan. Their clan were to be told that they were supposed to be enemies but it was seemed that the prince and princess doesn't want to be enemies but friends. But one day, they surely will be apart. Suddenly when their clan queen and king found out at they always played together at night, they told their to look after them 24-hours a day. They felt very sad and lonely without seeing each other.

Years had past and they turned 15. The boy and the girl didn't forget about each other and they were hoping that they won't forget. One day, they sneaked out of their home and went to the maple tree where they always played together. Suddenly, fate made them see each other again. Their guards noticed that they escaped at sent more guards to look for them and bring them back home. Finally they found them together at the maple tree watching the sunset. Suddenly they guards separate them apart and brought them home. The boy and girl cried every night. They were also told that they won't ever brought outside of their home ever again.

Six years had passed and they finally turned 21. They were able to marry the person they loved but the girl's mother had already arrange someone for her. The girl rejected anyone who came for her match making. The boy heard the their enemy princess was having her match making with some other guy who came to visit. The boy was shocked at escaped. He shed some blood just to see her and escape together. The guards halfway followed him and stopped. They were ordered by their queen, 'If the boy started to chase after the girl even giving up him life for her, let him go and let his heart take him to the place he want to go' Everything was a setup for him but the match making was not a set up for her.

Finally the boy arrived in time and stopped the match making session and stopped the man who kept coming. He grabbed the girls hand and ran. Some guards chased them but the girl's mother told them to stop chasing them and let them go. They queens and the kings said,'They are just like us when we were at their age'. The boy and girl went to a new place and make a new life. And they started to make a new maple tree growing in front of a cliff which anyone can see a beautiful sun rising and setting. They stayed together till the day they died.
