The knight appeared suddenly one day many years ago. He calmly said he was there to offer her protection. She felt very safe and accepted the offer, even though she did not know him at all.
It took years for her to heal, yet step by step, her strength was restored. He stood by her side and waited until one day he saw that a warrior had emerged from the ashes. He knew in that moment that his work was done.
He wanted to stay longer, yet he knew it was time to let her go. The warrior woman cried many tears. Her heart was heavy, filled with grief and agony, yet she also understood that it was time for them to part ways.
She remembered all the excruciating and painful thorns, the life lessons that were necessary for her transformation, and she watched as all the years passed by right before her eyes.
She was granted wisdom, and she could now see through the darkness. The light illuminated everything, and she was prepared to step into the light.
They were both on a new journey, thankful for the experience and waving goodbye to each other.
After the knight laid down his armor, he flew off to find another wounded soul. His presence was not designed to be romantic in nature. The Knight’s mission was to provide protection, healing, and to give the wounded souls the wings to fly on their own.
