Once upon a time there was a little girl, she had a big warm heart and was liked by everyone.
But there was something about her people did not know, she was afraid to fall in love.
Every time someone came her too close, she would run away. Too scared of being hurt, she thought that was the best thing to do.

Years past by, while flowers fade, leaves fall and snow melts. Suddenly one early spring day she found her prince. She fell in love with him. She could not help it.
Never the less she was too scared to show him how she really felt. Every time he came around, she felt very shy and wanted to hide.
And all these sparkling feelings inside of her, that no one will ever know and she will never show how much she adored him.

In misery and love she now lived and decided to get rid of all these feelings inside of her. Because she knew she would only get hurt in the end anyway.
She ran away, ran to the forest behind the Twilight-mountains. And beneath a big old tree she fell down in tears.

She mourned the love she will never have.
If only she had seen all the keen glances he had given her.
She regretted the feelings she had for him.
Why could she not understand he was feeling the same way about her.
She is heart broken, because she feared of being hurt.
But what she did not know was, that he would never hurt her.

”One cut and it will not hurt anymore.
One cut and I will not feel anymore.
One cut and it will all be over…”

She cut out her heart and buried it in the ground under a big stone beneath the tree.
“Now I can not get hurt anymore.”

The end.

Woah, the story is almost EXACTLY like one of the opening tales from the anime Princess Tutu [much better show than the name suggest]. The tale was about a girl who was in love with a man but never told him for her love might vanish as she told him. Eventually she died and the man married another woman without ever knowing the girl existed at all.

That's how love can feel sometimes:(
I have an other story to my work 'Eternal winter' also with a similar theme, of what love can do to us.

I love the character design and setting. The subtle use of red is quite striking. Great visuals.
