Long long ago there was a small village. A huge river flowed on its right and left and looked like a huge blue rainbow. Huge trees, sweet smelling lots and lots of flowers, herbs painted the village green.
The village was so beautiful and colorful. All the people in it were very friendly and hard working. They never fought among-st themselves. They shared the work and always helped each other.
All were very happy and joyful. The village was always filled with the loud laughter of the kids. They used to play in the woods and river and always be merry. From sunrise to sunset all the kids are seen playing and running. All. Maybe except one.
Rosy. Oops it’s Princess Rosy.
A seven year old beautiful charming pretty girl always in the dream land.
She is the apple of the eye of her parents. Dreamy eyes, long curly hair, a ready smile. She was the perfect little girl. She was always merry but she had one big dream always which left her distracted.
She wanted to be a Princess. Ever since she heard a Princess story from her mother she wanted to be one herself. She wanted a sparkling dress, a glittering crown and a shining shoe.
She always dreamed about living in a big castle. No chores and always fun. Everyone will do what she wants to. All these thoughts will make her happy and she will dream about these all day.
Every day at prayer she would kneel and ask God to make her a Princess.
One day she was sitting near the garden and dreaming about her castle when suddenly she heard someone call her.
“Rosy dear. ”
She was surprised. She has never heard this voice before. She stepped into the garden to search for it.
” Rosy dear, How are you? ” the voice called again.
The voice was kind and she was so eager to know who was it.
She ran and ran in the direction of the voice. The voice seemed to follow her all the way but she could not see anyone. Finally she gave up and sat on a big stone. A big shadow fell on her.
She looked up. It was a big eagle. She got scared. She was about to run when the eagle came in front of her and said in the same kind voice,
“Rosy dear why are you scared? I am your guardian angel. God has heard your prayers and has decided to make you a Princess. Come with me. ”
She was so so happy. She did not know what to do.” I would love to come with you. But what about my parents and friends? I will miss them.”
The eagle replied, “You need not worry about that. We will bring them there once you become the Princess. Climb on my back.”
She was satisfied now and climbed on the back of the eagle. The eagle flew high and high and high in the sky and she was happy to see her village go small and small and finally vanish before her eyes. She wanted to know more about her castle but she could not hear what the eagle said as it was windy.
Finally exhausted she fell asleep.
Sleep well Rosy. You have a long adventure ahead. We will travel with you to find about your castle.
