The girl remains a mystery to him. Even after all this time, how a mere slip of a mortal can do everything she did to him -- how she knocked him down from his throne and made him beg, how she turned his entire world upside down, and turned the subjects who feared him to revolt against him -- is beyond even his wildest imaginings. For years, he has sworn that, one of these days, he would glean his revenge. Yet his revenge is slipping further and further away as he watches her grow.
She’s a beautiful woman now, and revenge is the furthest thing from his mind as he still watches her from just beyond her window. He no longer cares about gaining his revenge. He no longer wishes to harm her or even to understand her. But he still loves her. He still loves her, and she is as determined as ever to not only stay away from him but to move on with her life. One of these days, she’s going to forget him, and the mere thought of that ever happening terrifies this King of everything else he oversees to the deepest parts of his heart and soul.
