A minstrel strolls merrily down the dusty path humming a forgotten song, he stops seeing a fellow minstrel a lovely maiden with flowing black hair, she holds a harp in one hand and a flute in the other. She nods recognizing one of the same trade he nods back. They fall into step and chat awhile then they stop having agreed to play a duet she lays down her flute and grasps her harp and the other minstrel in turn pulls out his lute from it place and they begin to sing...
The Lad and the Lass
Once Upon a time long ago
In a land all covered with snow
There lives a lad and a lass
Who were destined to change the past
Years went by and time did pass
Still nothing became of the lad and the lass
Break the rock stop the clock
The Lad and the Lass would change the past
Still more time flew
But change would still come fresh, anew
For in second the clock would halt
And the memories of the present would lock in the valt
The Lad and the Lass were to change the past
In moments soon and the change would last
Though they knew not what they're acts would do
What will happen, the answer is up to you.
The song ends and the maiden minstrel laughs a tinkling laugh. She curtsies to him and he bows politely to her. She asks him what did happen and the lad minstrel whispers in her ear his answer she laughs again and they shake hands and once again part ways.
So what do you think happened?
