Unbeknownst to most of its subjects, the kingdom that had lost its prince gained somebody new: A nameless, faceless peasant girl from a tiny village in a small country to the east of the kingdom. A peasant girl who remembered the prince well.

He had come to her country years ago, and befriended her and her family. He had charmed her with his princely manners and open, generous heart until he gained the affection and respect of her village, and until she herself fell in love with him.

And then he left her, vowing to return. She waited and waited for him, but he never did return. Then one day, she grew tired of waiting, packed up her most treasured belongings, and set out to find him instead.
