Now the story continues on..........
This is a story that is best started at the beginning.........in case you haven't read part 1 and 2.
Prince Amor visited with his father and after a good visit, he came back. He told his sister that their father missed her and he asked if maybe the next time she would come also. The princess promised her brother that if she was feeling better, she would go. She just didnít want her father to see her like this. And this was the truth. Part of her knew that she could not see her father, because she could never fool him, but there was still a part of her left, that truly respected her father and would like to see him again. She had not lost all of her good wisdom yet.
She was anxious for the news from their father. The prince told his sister that their father had now given them the ability to live in all things, except for the two most intelligent host inhabitants. And so more time went by and the prince was finding joy in all things and the princess was learning how she could possess all things. The prince was growing in the love that he already possessed and the princess was changing into something new and very different.
Now Princess Morus was ready. She could stand it no longer and her desires for her new kingdom were eating away at her. This time she truly was ill and she didnít even have to speak to her brother. He saw that her illness was stronger than before. Again the father was very sad not to see the daughter with his son, but was very pleased to see his son again. His son seemed to have grown so much in the love that was within him, but there was none of the wisdom visible that he had hoped his sister would have shared with him. It was obvious that she was not helping her brother with her greatest ability, that of wisdom. The father was very concerned but he had expected this anyway and he was ready for what he would allow to be their final request. He would give them the ability to live in the two final hosts. But there would be conditions to this request unlike the other requests. These two hosts must be told that their lives would be different from what they had ever experienced before. They would now have new abilities that they never had before and they would no longer be content with the life that they once knew. They must be warned that these abilities will bring harm as well as pleasure. They must also choose of their own free will to accept these gifts. They are not to know that you will be living in them, just that they have been given these new abilities. The hosts will be multiplying and filling the earth, so I will allow each of you to leave your host and go to another, but you will leave a part of yourselves behind, each time you move on. A part of each of you will always be in each of the new offspring, because you must remain together until the time comes when you will be allowed to prove your individual worthiness to me.
With the news that her brother brought, the princess began to feel well immediately. She could now complete her grandest of plans. She never realized how easy it would be. The King had picked out two hosts that were very different than any other of the hosts that they had been allowed to live in. The princess had watched these two hosts and suspected that she would need to be more cunning around these two.
Previously living in different animals, the prince and princess had already made their homes with these two hosts that we will call Shepherd and Beauty. After living awhile around Shepherd and Beauty, they all had became a part of each others lives. Beauty began to notice something different about one of the animals. She was very curious and started spending more and more time with this animal. She discovered that this animal could talk to her and she enjoyed the conversations that she and the princess were having. Beauty noticed a certain quality about this animal that she was beginning to admire and want for herself. It was an independence that neither she nor Shepherd had. As Beauty wanted this quality, so did Shepherd. Because of this, now Princess Morus and Prince Armor were free to live in Beauty and Shepherd.
Now came the greatest experience of all for both Prince Armor and Princess Morus. They now could experience things that they had never experienced before. The same was also true for Shepherd and Beauty. The world now looked completely different for all four of them. It took quite some getting used to, for everyone. Shepherd and Beauty now felt emotions and had thoughts that they had never had before. There was so much to share all at once. As for Prince Armor and Princess Morus they had a sensation that they had never had before. They were now in hosts that had a much stronger will of their own, than that of any other of the previous hosts, that they had lived in. They werenít so easily manipulated.
Prince Armor was pleased at this new experience. Here was a new creature that he could learn from and could love. On the other hand Princess Morus was struggling. Beauty was used to living life a certain way and was not ready to give that up. Princess Morus again would have to work through cunning and deceit, to get what she wanted. She had planned on being in control, but Beauty continued to have a strong will of her own and wasnít so easily manipulated. She had years of doing things a certain way and a brain that wouldnít easily forget. There was much too much of Beauty and not enough room for Princess Morus. Then the princess remembered that she could also live in the offspring of Shepherd and Beauty. A child would not have had so much time to develop a strong will and would be much easier to manipulate.
The other thing that she realized was that in a womanís body she would be limited. The physical strength seemed to be the strongest in the man. She made up her mind. She would leave Beauty and live in the son that Beauty and Shepherd would soon have. As for Prince Armor, he was growing to love Shepherd and Beauty, but at the same time he was feeling limited too. A prince could never learn to be a ruler if he wasnít in control. He also remembered that he could live in the offspring of Shepherd and Beauty. Maybe a child would not have such a strong will and he could influence a child more easily. He would live in the son that Beauty and Shepherd would soon have. He was also to discover that even though he left Shepherd, a part of his him would remain and Shepherd would also be changed forever.
So both Prince Armor and Princess Morus planned to leave Shepherd and Beauty. After two sons were born, both the prince and princess had new homes and new lives.
As for Shepherd and Beauty, their lives were changed forever. Beauty and Shepherd now had a new feeling of independence that they had never experienced before and they wanted more out of life and they set out to find it. This will be another story and maybe it will be written another day. To be continued......................
