The Maiden

     Once in a valley far away lived a young maiden.  One day the maiden was in the woods and like always met up with her unicorn.  they were sworn to keep it a secret, but they didn't know that someone was watching.  The next day the maiden returned to see her unicorn lying on it's side.  There wasn't much time left.

     '' My lady, I fear this is the last time we meet.'' said the unicorn 

     ''Nooooooooooooo!,'' the maiden screamed as the unicorn's head fell to the ground. one hour latter.

     The maiden killed herself and was buried with an arm around her unicorn.
