- A "L"-less Fairytale...
Once upon a time there was a princess named Driannior. She was imprisoned within the stones of the fortress she was born in.
Her parents treasured her so much that they wanted to protect her from everything. Even an ordinary existence was out of the question.
She grew up wanting to see something other than what she had known each day upon rising.
Her heart dreamed of someone to cherish her forever. But she had never met anyone her own age. Even the servants were much more aged than she. Her mother feared any young man who might sweep her off her feet- even a mere page was a danger. The thought of the princess meeting a dashing young knight- that was not to be thought.
However, one night as Princess Driannior reached over the edge of her porch to try and touch the stars, she dropped to the ground and found that she was outside the fortress.
Her first emotion was fear, but then she knew both joy and hope.
Now she was free!
She ran into the city by the moon's rays and found a strange universe of sights and sounds surrounding her.
Princess Driannior was knocked to the ground and attacked by ruffians, but just as she gave up every chance of being saved, a strong prince in shining armor rescued her.
It just so happened he was destined for the throne and his name was Riimore. He was a good and kind man.
They were soon married and he made her queen of his country. She never was imprisoned again, but was free to roam about wherever she wanted.
They were happy forever.
