There was once a king who lived in a country far up in the north, where the ground was covered with snow at least eight (and sometimes as many as ten) months out of the year. But every June, streams of frigid water rushed down the mountains, and this was the king's favorite season, because the sides of the ravines would erupt with close to a hundred thousand blooms – and he knew the exact number, because he had ordered a regiment from his army to count them – the petals of which sparkled like tiny stars under the blazing sun. The colors of these flowers crossed the entire spectrum, ranging from a red deeper than any blood (even that spilled on fresh snow) to a perfect violet that recalled the shadowed floor of a mossy forest on a moonless night during one of their brief summers.
