Eldina loved the vivid red flowers, and she was loved by them in return. In fact, there were many who perceived her infatuation to be as powerful as a curse, but still, the young woman set about building her castle around the tallest stem that ever was. All knew that it was unwise to even dare entering the premises without one of its mistress' favored flowers in hand, else they wished to be harmed by the entwining thorns within.
Eldina is a spelling variant of Bosnian feminine name Aldina of Turkish origin; the meaning is "golden"; derived from the Turkish word altin "gold".
