Forget‐me‐not

Swiss folktale

Once upon a time, in some place,

there were a boy and a girl who were in each other’s pocket.

One day,

they went out to climb a mountain.

They hold each other's hand, sang a song,

climbed up,

and eventually, they saw a river.

"Ah,

There are some flowers blooming overthere."

The girl said.

Blue flowers were blooming

right there, next to the flowing river.

The boy liked the girl so much,

so he wanted to get the flowers for her.

He didn't care that he could get wet and started climbing the rock.

However,

as soon as he reached the flowers,

his foot slipped in the water of the river.

The boy hold the flowers, and threw them to the girl.

But he was still under water,

and was quickly swept away.

With the sound of falling water,

the boy's voice came out.

"I do like you!

Do not forget me, forever!"

From that time,

that blue flower

means "Don't forget me"

and it is called by the name

"Forget-me-not"

The end.
