Many years ago there lived a young man called Valentine. He was tall, nice and clever. Valentine was a clergyman. All people loved him a lot. But the king was unjust to him. So one day he put Valentine into prison. February the 14th was the day of his execution. Before the execution Valentine saw a girl. The girl was very beautiful and kind. But poor thing was blind. She was the only daughter of Valentines executioner. The young people loved each other. They were happy.
For the love of the daughter the executioner didn t kill Valentine. Later some people called him sait Valentine.
