Home ->The long lost princess ->12 Are we heading home?

 It was " I do"...not "I love you", Queen Katherina thought to herself, it was in their first wedding night when she realized it, even when he was inside her, there were no love in his eyes, admiration and respect yes, but not love, he dealt with their marriage and her body as if it was a job, something to be done... young Katherina who was only 16 back then understood it all, and beside the pain, her first wedding night was so sad..

the crowned prince heard his new bride cry silently in their bed, he naturally presumed that he was rough on her and caused her pain since she was only a young virgin girl, he did not know what to do so he apologized and left the room, he thought she may need time for herself, to ease her pain, but what she needed really was him by herside, treating the pain in her heart not her body, but he left her alone.. in their wedding night after he used her body.. young Katherina's heart was badly broken...

Few months passed by and the crowned prince never touched his wife since their first wedding night, he was. still ashamed of the pain he caused her, he was always a good person who hated hurting others, and Katherina was his childhood friend, he did not love her romantically yes, same as he never loved anyone, yet he had great affection toward her, she was a sweet pure soul like a white beautiful butterfly, for him to hurt such great young woman was unforgivable, so he decided to give her enough time, till she is ready...

But for the young broken hearted Katherina, he hated her.. she was not enough for him and did her duty as a wife poorly so her husband left her on their wedding night and never touched her again, her pain just increased and she suffered a terrible depression...

it was not long before her frail body reached his maximum endurance, she fell sick, she would go unconscious for days, she had barely any appetite and could only swallow few spoons of soup and medicine, the crowned prince got her all the best priests yet no one knew what was wrong with their future queen..

"It is her heart who is suffering, not her body.. " the maid who was taking care of the unconscious Katherina said in a low voice, Prince Edard only looked toward her with a questioning expression, the maid then added "only a woman can tell your highness " then gave him a courtesy and left the room...

"her heart? how can i treat the pain in her heart? " Edard asked himself, he was no fool, he knew how much Katherina loved him since they were children, it was one of the reasons he agreed to marry her when his father suggested it, beside her beauty,her grace and her kindness, what else can he ask for? he wondered if what he did all this time was only breaking her heart...
