Chapter 1 Iseult met Tristam”

Once upon a time there was in London a girl named Iseult. Iseult was a beautiful girl, with long blond hair and big blue eyes that exalted her pale skin. She wasn’t married yet, so her father was looking for a husband for her. In the meantime, he was looking court Tristam arrived, a young charming man. His face was clean, with two big green eyes, full lips and a chin rather round. His face was sheltered with a slight shave. He was tall and muscular. He approached to the King, Iseult’s father, and the King said:
“ Tristam I heard you are the best knight, and the bravest. Is it true?”
Tristam replied:
“ the King will say by himself!”
In the meantime, Iseult arrived, wearing smart dresses. Suddenly Iseult’s eyes met Tristam’s eyes and she felt strange: her heart was beating a lot and a shiver crossed her. Tristam approached her and he kneel down and he said:
“ Your charme is amazing, princess.”
Iseult smiled to him and she felt embarrassed. The King arrived and exclaimed:
“ Yes, oh father! Can I show him the castle?”
The father said:
“ Yes, you can show him his bedroom.”
Iseult led Tristam to his room, that was in the end of corridor. All of sudden, Tristam said:
“ Will I be delighted to see you again?”
She replied:
“ I will be happy to meet you again. But now I must go”
Tristam stopped her and said:
“ Wait! I must tell you an important thing. Tomorrow at dawn I’ll wait you in the garden of the castle. I hope you’ll come.”At the sunrise Iseult woke up very fast and she ran in to the garden. She saw Tristam sitting in the grass. Iseult sat near him, and she put her hand on Tristam’s shoulder. When he turned, he saw Iseult smiling with sweetness. Tristam took her hand and he said:
“ Oh Iseult, you are the most beautiful girl that I’ve ever seen. Your hair are so beautiful, your eyes are more precious than diamonds and pearls, your lips are fresh rose and your smile reflects the kindness of your soul, and no women is like you. Oh Iseult I’m in love with you!”
Iseult replied:
“ Oh Tristam, so am I!”
In the end, Tristam said:
“ You are the woman that I want marry!”
Touched, Iseult held him and Tristam kissed her. When they got kissing, they felt a shiver crossing them. They were so in love. So, their love story started…
