Once upon a time in a land far far away was a young and beautiful princess whose parents were King and Queen Glockamore.
King and Queen Glockamore really loved their daughter, Princess Quindalyn, and were very concerned there were no young men of Royal blood for her to marry.
The King and Queen were getting up in years and worried about what would happen to their daughter. They put out a notice inviting all young men to woo Quindalyn, but first they had to cross the blood red and boiling water that filled the moat around the castle.
Although many tried, only one young man, Master Bartford, crossed the moat. Princess Quindalyn fell madly in love with Bartford and the King and Queen were very pleased.
However, they all wondered how it was that Bartford could cross this moat when no other young man could.
He wasn’t about to tell them that he could walk on water.
