I have always seen Pocahontas as a lively, spirited and free girl with the kind of charisma you find in movie stars today. I, truly in my heart believe that she was genuinely enraptured by him; call it a little girl’s crush or puppy-love. She probably dreamed of kissing him, being held in his arms and smiled while thinking about tender moments stolen throughout the day. In reality, no one knows, and no one will ever know what really happened between them. I like to think that it was on the level of Romeo and Juliet, Bonny and Clyde, and Elizabeth I and Sir Robert Dudley.
