Taboo Word 9/14/16
Once upon a time, there was an evil prince, and he found himself a princess. Neither of them knew the other was sick, or just how sick they were. They were together a year before they had a child. The child was a girl, a princess, and now the woman was a queen. She was a wicked queen. They had another child. The child was a boy, a prince, and now the man was a king. He was wrong. He thought he was still the king but the queen was a wicked, evil, queen and she ruled over the kingdom, and she ruled over the king as well.
So the queen and the king had another child. The child was a boy, another prince, and the queen continued to rule of what was now the queendom. The two princes both wanted to become the king some day, and they battled with each other, each attempting to be the better prince. The queen continued ruling over the queendom, and the princess seemed to be pushed aside, forgotten.
So the king decided that his only resource was the princess. He would take the princess around the queendom, showing her all the wonders that existed within the land. There were trees and lakes, hills and valleys, and all that the princess saw overwhelmed her.
But one cold night, the king crept into the bed of the princess, and he held her, touched her, told her how beautiful she was. In the queendom, the princess was not well liked. The two princes would fight with her all the times, and the other children in the land would pick fights with her as well. This made the princess feel bad, and sometimes she would even cry. She would cry at night when no one could hear her. The king thought he was at least powerful to the princess, if not the queen, and that made him happy.
The king went to the princess many, many nights, and the princess became scared, especially at night. The king started to hurt the child, because his sickness caused him to prey upon the little girls. Having the princess right there in the palace made his visits very satisfying to him. When he would leave her, the princess would become very angry any time the king came near her, and he did every time that every chance he got when the queen wasn’t around.
The queen was very evil and she treated the princess and the princes very badly. She gave them very little to eat, and kept all the good things for herself. She was angry with them and would treat them very roughly.
One by one, the souls of the princess and the princes became very dark. They had learned from the queen and her lessons were very well absorbed by each of them. None of them wanted to continue, and all wanted to flee the palace. But there was nowhere to flee to. One by one, as soon as they were old enough to make this a go on their own, they left the palace for good.
The king died from loneliness, and the queen ran off with another king. The children of the king and queen, unfortunately became as evil as the queen, and took their anger out on every one in the kingdom, until one night, and group of princes crept upon them very quietly, and ended the misery they were causing, and the misery that lived within each of them. Then once again there was a prince, and he waited, and waited to find a princess….
