But once, Likass had to go home and to enter in possession of the private residence which was left in inheritance by his uncle. Egle was frightened that Likass, after becoming rich, will forget about their love, will find a cute beauty from the city and will not return to Egle anymore . But she did not know, whether it was necessary to tell Likass about her fears. When they have saying goodbye to each other, Egle has burst into tears. Those tears fall into the grass and have turned into flowers as blue, as her eyes were. Those were the first forget me nots. Egle collected those flowers and gave them to her beloved. She didn’t say nothing, but Likass understood everything and named the flowers “forget me not”.
