The prince and princess of two rival kingdoms fell in love.

They knew that if they stayed in their own countries, they would never be together, so they decided to run away. No one knew where they were going because they left in the middle of the night.

They traveled for days until they reached a small town near the border between their two countries. They were tired, so they stopped at a nearby inn to rest.

But as soon as they stepped through the entrance, guards surrounded them! It turned out that their parents knew they ran away, and they sent the guards to find them.

The prince and princess were forced to return to their own countries and were told they would marry other people there.

Even though they were upset, they knew there had to be a way out. They didn’t want to be forced to marry someone they didn’t love. They wanted to be together and were determined to find a way.

One day, the princess had a sudden thought. She took a knife to her hair and cut it off. She put on a boy’s clothes and went out to find the prince. She told him about her plan:

They would both run away again, but this time they would not be stopped because they learned from their mistakes and would be much more careful.

Little did she know! This time, things went from bad to worse for the unfortunate couple. When the prince’s father heard about their plan, he was so angry that he locked the prince in a prison tower.

The princess was sent to live in a faraway village by her parents, who told her she could never return to the court. Both the prince and the princess lost the luxury and comfort of living in a palace. But they didn’t give up and kept looking for a solution.

One day, the prince had a sudden thought. There was going to be a big race in the kingdom. His father and he always competed in the royal race, and the winner could have any wish come true. If he won the race, his father might change his mind and let him out of prison. Then he could go to the faraway village and see his beloved princess again.

Meanwhile, in the village, people didn’t know the princess was actually the daughter of the King. She was away and living a simple life. She never revealed her true identity. But she heard rumors of a plan to get rid of the king. She rode day and night, without hesitation, to inform her parents of the evil scheme.

The princess’s parents were so moved by how much she cared for her family that they let her go even though she disobeyed them and ran away.

On the day of the festival, the prince raced as fast as he could, and he and his father both crossed the finish line at the same time. When the king saw his son, he was so proud and happy that he immediately forgave him and let him go.

The rival families met to discuss the future of the relentless couple. They were happy for the two to get married and live together in a beautiful castle far, far away. The prince and princess lived happily ever after, and their love was stronger than anything that stood in their way.
