How The Princess Found Her Joy - Chapter 5

Although the Princess was secretly growing weary of waiting on her Prince and wondering if he would ever ask for her hand in marriage, the Prince had a secret of his own.

He had been SAVING his gold and silver and looking for THE PERFECT RING to buy for the Princess, to affirm his love for her and his desire for her to be his wife.  Now he was JUST WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME to present his hard-earned treasure to her.

One day, while out taking a ride in her carriage, the Princess got into a terrible ACCIDENT.

Although the Princess fared the accident alright, which unfortunately can't be said about her carriage, she was VERY SORE and BRUISED from the collision.

The Prince thought the best thing for her would be to get away from the place that overlooked the NORTH gate of the city of GREENVILLE and ride FURTHER NORTH to a small village called TROUTVILLE, where the Prince had grown up with his FOUR YOUNGER SIBLINGS and MOTHER AND FATHER.


Early the next morning the Princess was awoken by a KNOCK ON THE DOOR.  She was staying in PRINCESS JOY's chambers, Prince Fro's youngest sibling.

It was the Prince.

He told the Princess that he would like to go see the sunrise with her up at THE PEAKS.

The Princess WASN'T THRILLED at the idea, as she just WANTED TO SLEEP and was still very much FEELING THE EFFECTS from the aftermath of THE ACCIDENT.

The Prince WOULDN'T TAKE "NO" for an answer as he confidently held out his hand for her reluctant one, in spite of the Princess' OBVIOUS IRRITATION and GRUMPINESS.  Her MANIPULATING CHARM wouldn't budge his determination.

He hopped up to the seat on his carriage while she stepped up to her place with CUTTING EYES.

The ride up to the PEAKS was LESS THAN ROMANTIC while he TRIED TO TIGHTLY HOLD HER LIMP HAND.

HIS GIDDINESS ONLY FUELED HER IRRITATION as he kept talking about looking at "all the deer around" them and the BEAUTIFUL SCENERY.

She COULDN'T UNDERSTAND why he had ALWAYS BEEN SO SENSITIVE to her needs UNTIL NOW, when she clearly just wanted sleep.  A bouncy carriage ride up to THE PEAKS was the LAST THING ON HER MIND, as her aching body screamed in defiance.

They FINALLY MADE IT to their destination and Prince Fro EXCITEDLY jumped off of his perch from the carriage and began UNLOADING A BLANKET AND HIS GUITAR.

This DIDN'T SEEM AT ALL FOREIGN to the Princess, as he was A VERY SKILLED MUSICIAN and BROUGHT HIS GUITAR EVERYWHERE with him.

He LED HER to a place by the water, OVERLOOKING THE VIEW and began to TAKE OUT HIS GUITAR

The Prince told the Princess that he had WRITTEN HER A SONG.  She was thinking "oh boy, he is going to sing a song with lyrics like,  'Am I Your Hero, Or Do I Just Wear A Funny Looking Cape'."

The Princess WASN'T VERY IMPRESSED with his performance, remember she was A BIT GRUMPY, and tried only to endure the gentle strum and sweet lyrics.

It wasn't until she heard the Prince sing the words, "I LOVE YOU" that she realized just what was going on!

Her ATTENTIVENESS GREW as the Prince continued on in his lament.  TEARS BEGAN TO WELL UP in her eyes as the song came to a close.

Prince Fro then placed the guitar gently on the ground and LOWERED TO ONE KNEE.  He then pulled out the TREASURED RING for his Princess and told her that he LOVED her and asked for her to GROW OLD WITH HIM AND BE HIS WIFE!

It was in that moment that the Princess found her TRUE JOY as she thanked her TRUE LOVE for this wonderful blessing!

FIVE SHORT MONTHS LATER the Prince and the Princess got married at the CHAPEL OF ST. LUKE's where they began their...

HAPPILY EVER AFTER!


CONCLUSION

It has been said that this fairytale story is true
and that this couple later resided in the village of Rolesville
where they reared their five beautiful children.
They can be found sitting out under the bright stars
reminiscing of the day they spoke those sweet words at the gathering
and making beautiful music together
as Prince Fro gently rubs Princess Tasha's weary feet.


~THE END~


In Dedication to my wonderful Prince of 10 years.
I love you Josh Via.
Happy Anniversary!
