THE ORIGIN OF PINKY PROMISE
"Do you know, why people use their pinkies when they make promises?"
Once upon a time, there was a huge kingdom.
and the princess was so beautiful.
Because she was beautiful and wise,princes from around the world come to her to propose to her.
Five handsome princes made it to the final pick.
To see who's the best match for her, she gave them a test.
She hid her right hand behind her back and unfolded only a finger.
And, the princes had to guess which it was.
That was a sign that she'd marry him.
Soon, they got married and could'nt be any happier.
But, the Crusade began and the prince had to go to war.
He promised her that he'd come back alive, crossing his pinky with hers.
Ten years had passed but he didn't come back.
She didn't even know if he was dead or alive.
and because she was still so beautiful after those years,
Although so many men come to the palace, asking her to marry them...
She believed that her husband would come back and turned them down.
But, it got to the point where she couldn't turn them down any longer.
So, she decided to marry a suitor who would cross his pinky with hers.
Then, one day a filthy beggar showed up at the palace.
The ministers tried to throw him out.
But, the princess called him in, telling everybody should be given an opportunity.
That beggar was the PRINCE!
The truth was that the prince get killed on his way back from the battlefield.
"ghost stay here only for 49 days".
That day, was the 49th day since he died.
But, he had to come back, even as a ghost.
To keep the promise that he'd made to his wife.
Finally, he found his body.
"now, you understand what crossing pinkies means, don't you?"
