Though they enjoyed their company, the prince and the rose soon found each other at odds. Shunning her vanity, he left his home and embarked on a journey through the cosmos. It was at his sevent destination that he met a small, clever fox. She discerned he was fleeing from something, and her glib remark caused him to recall the rose. He then hurried back to his humble home to be reunited with her once more.

The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince), first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The Little Prince is also a main character who fell to Earth from a tiny asteroid and met the pilot; he is described as having golden hair, a scarf, and a lovable laugh. Although the prince fell in love with the mysterious rose that suddenly began growing on the asteroid's surface some time ago, he also began to feel that she was taking advantage of him, and he resolved to leave the planet to explore the rest of the universe. Although the rose finally apologized for her vanity, and the two reconciled, she encouraged him to go ahead with his journey and so he traveled onward. On one of his journeys he met a fox, the prince then took time to tame the fox, though the two ultimately parted ways, teary-eyed.
