"Mister Raven, have you ever hear the rumour about Prince Corvus? I heard he is chained inside the tower because of his uncontrollable power. He accidentally killed his father and little sister." Anna said.
The raven perched on her shoulder made clucking sounds in response. Anna smiled and fed the raven with the bread for her dinner as a maid. She already took this raven as her pet since it perched on her shoulder whenever she was outside.
"I know that you cannot understand me, Mister Raven, but I pity that cursed prince. Imagine being locked up for your entire life because of a sin you couldn't control? Sometimes, I just want to give him a big hug and rub his head. I will tell him that everything is alright," Anna said.
She glanced at the raven on her shoulder that suddenly flew away. The raven circled around the middle of the lake before a strong gust of dark wind engulfed the raven's body, and the raven turned into a man who was feared across the kingdom,
Prince Corvus Lunaris.
Prince Corvus stood in the middle of the lake, showered by the full moon. He grinned at Anna. "Then hug me and rub my head, Anna. Embrace me or…"
Prince Corvus suddenly disappeared from his position and reappeared behind Anna. He hugged Anna from behind. "… or I shall embrace you first."
"No… don't come closer. I don't want to hurt you," Prince Corvus hid deeper into the cave as his body emitted deadly miasma. He didn't want to hurt the girl that he liked. He knew how dangerous and deadly he could be with his uncontrollable power.
Anna smiled. She crouched in front of the cowering prince and said, "Prince Corvus, remember what Moon Lady said? A witch and a cursed prince, a black swan and the raven, two can find comfort in each other."
"Let me be your comfort, because I also longed for yours."
