The Princess and the Siege – p.1

November 4, 2014 at 12:09 pm 2 comments

Stuck in a loop of time known as Ever After, in the middle of a wide ring of tall mountains, there lives a princess. Alone in her castle except for the cook, the stable boy, and her personal maid, she is fair and just to the people in her kingdom, which number three: the cook, the stable boy, and her personal maid.

The land inside the mountain ring is green and rich, and provides the princess with everything she and her few loyal subjects could ever need, so they are happy…for most of the year. Every spring, when the snow atop the mountains melts, hordes of princes ride over and seek her out. The legend tells that the princess is very beautiful, and that any man who wins her love will be king of all the mountains.

The princess, however, doesn’t consider herself to be such a prize. She is not sure how the legend got started but she certainly does not want to share rulership of the mountains with anyone, so she spends each winter preparing for the onslaught of suitors, and devising ways to thwart them.
