For so long he had searched; a unending quest to win the heart of the whom he loved. And now, at long last, he stood within the Cavern of Light.
All about him, the walls lined with crystal jewels; each one more precious and beautiful than the last. Each one reflecting the small fraction of light that seeped through the darkness of the tunnels and multiplying it tenfold, illuminating the cavern deep within the earth with dazzling brilliance.
Surely, any one of these gems would win the love of the one he desired.
Moving carefully across the cavern floor, he scanned the walls for just the right one. He came to a large teardrop shaped crystal that glimmered in his eye. A smile spread across his face and he moved closer to inspect the treasure.
Within the heart of the perfectly shaped crystal, he could see her; his beloved. Her long, flowing hair falling about her playfully as she danced and laughed in the ever changing angles of the gem; beckoning for him to join.
His smile broadened and his heart filled with joy as he reached out to the crystal image of his love, touching its smooth surface as if he were caressing the soft skin of her very cheek.
In his ears he heard her laughter, felt her arms around him as they danced together within the glittering light of the crystal's prisms.
Dancing eternally, deep within the Cavern of Light, its high domed walls filled with thousands of different shaped crystals; each one containing the smiling and laughing images of their prisoners.
All trapped forever, within their own desire.
