The Princess Who Dreams

Chapter One: The Princess Who Dreams

Once upon a time, there lived a Princess who dreams. Now the kingdom that the Princess lived in was a terrible place, a vision of grey and ash and sadness, so the Princess used her special gift to escape from the everyday that she sees.

In her dreams, life was technicolor. Meadows run green and golden, and the endless fields were dotted with poppies and peonies, dandelions and daffodils, gypsophila and euphorbia, in a multitude of colors the people of the kingdom can never imagine. In her dreams, the night was dark blue and even the tiny stars that shimmered were diamonds that adorn the velvet sky.

The Princess loved dreaming so much that she became sadder and sadder every time she wakes up. She became impatient for night and slumber that until one day, she stopped smiling except in sleep.

The King and Queen were deeply concerned. They loved their daughter so much that they would do anything just to see her happy with them again. Thousands of the funniest clowns and jesters were called to entertain the princess, five hundred pretty dresses were bought, two hundred and fifty banquet nights were held, but to no avail. The princess only smiled in her sleep.
