Because of his great love, the prince poured out treasure after treasure upon the beautiful princess. The princess adored it. She adored it until such time that a visiting king and his three sons came calling.
The foreign king and his sons were intriguing to the princess. They were unusually different. They captured her attention and held it. Before long her affections were directed toward the foreign visitors. Her time, her heart, her being was consumed by them. She gave so much of herself, in fact, that she no longer resembled who she once was.
The prince who truly loved this princess witnessed all that was happening. He tried to talk with her about it, but she would not listen. The beautiful princess that he had once known was slipping away before his very eyes.
Many moons passed. And though the prince fought valiantly for the heart and hand of his beautiful princess, she refused him. Not only did she refuse the prince whom she had once adored, she left him, choosing instead to follow after the king and his sons.
In choosing to follow the king and his sons, the princess unwittingly declared herself a prostitute. Now all who looked upon her saw a shadow of the beauty she once was.
