I’m guessing from the expression on the fair maiden’s face that perhaps our lucky swineherder had yet to take his after work bath. Oh well, one down, just nine to go!
You are right, she did not want to kiss the swineherder, but it’s a fairy tale and kissing a stinker usually ends up very well!
ha ha. I must admit this is one that I don’t know but I’m glad to hear it ends happily. I was a bit worried about the poor ol’ swineherder for a moment. Not all fairy tale working folk enjoy such good fortune, certainly very few get to kiss the queen!
Oh dear, not much joy there!
But be honest for once, the girl does not look like it would give the lads even a kiss. I think you see it, how sad he is about it. What a shame, but the two would give off a good couple? (;-))
