Stealth

How could I speak of what I felt? I did not have the words.

So many emotions played across his ever-changing face, to read their secrets would take a wiser man than I.

Then came a day when all was quite still, as a lake whose surface mirrors the sky.

I no longer knew if I looked at him or myself.

Any defence conquered, any resistance stripped away.

He had shielded the kingdom against every invader, valiant beyond the call of duty.

Well he knew when a single blow would suffice.

His king he defeated with one single, rippling smile.
