If only there was a way to stop them from coming, I want to live like a normal person, not being forced into sleeping with nightmares.
I was so scared of going to sleep the next night, even though I was so tired I knew that my nightmares would come back. There was nobody that I could ask, my husband was probably dead, I hadn't seen him for months and I didn't want to ask the servants here, while I had a good relationship with all of them I was pretty sure they didn't knew a lot about nightmares and why mine would keep on coming. I knew I had to do something because I knew that everything would go back to normal if I just came up with a good idea on what to do, maybe I was under a curse of some kind, but who could've given me that particular curse?
I shouldn't have gone to the dungeoun, my curiousity had taken over at that point and I felt bad thinking of it, that was probably the reason to why these nightmares appear, if only I had a friend that I could explain these nightmares to.
I had never felt so alone until now, normally I would manage to be alone, but now I felt like a child that wanted it's parents back, I felt so passive because I didn't want to do anything at all, but I knew I had to do something. I looked out of the window in my room, it was a sunny day so the birds where out, but it didn't made me feel better, why was I so melancholic nowadays as if nothing made me feel better, I did smile at the birds, but then I quickly started to feel sad again. I wanted to be free, I wanted to escape the princess life for a while, maybe that would make me feel better.
The next morning after yet another nightmare I left the castle, but I didn't knew where to stay, but then I rememberd the dwarfs's cottage, they didn't live there anymore so I would have the whole house for myself. The house looked a bit messy so I started with cleaning it up, then I went to bed and I was right, leaving the castle was a good idea because that night I didn't have a nightmare for once.
The next morning I finally felt like I had have a good night sleep, I decided that I was going to stay in the cottage for a while, then return to the castle in hope on that I don't get more nightmares when I've returned.
It felt fantastic living in the cottage again, it felt like home to me, sure I enjoyed the life in the castle, but this was so different and I even felt happier already when I came to here, but that's because I knew I was going to get a better life here.
Finally my animal friends made me happier because I was now closer to them than when I lived in the castle. Everything about the life here made me feel better, maybe I shouldn't have accepted the princess life, but then I would be without my lovely husband, but who knows where he is now and when is he coming back.
When he comes back if it doesn't take too much time I'll return to the castle because then I at least have someone by my side every night and someone that always makes me feel better. Hope it'll be soon because I can't almost stand being without him, what a luck that I have my animal friends close to me. but all of a sudden I saw a letter by the floor, it was from him, but how could he know that was here? Anyway I sat down and started to read the letter:
Dear Snow White!
I'll return in about a week, sorry for that I haven't been sending any letters to you until now, but I've been very busy so I haven't got the time, but now I got it. Anyway I got to know from one of the servants in the castle that you where gone and I guessed that you had gone to the dwarfs's cottage since that's the only place here that I know holds a special in your heart. Hope you're alright, I'll see you in a week.
Yours sincerly Ferdinand
I felt so relieved over reading the amazing news, he was going to return in a week, that's not a very long time and I loved this place so the time would pass by pretty fast and before I knew it he would stand here taking me back home on his horse like he did after he woke me up after I had eaten a poisned apple and fallen into a deep sleep. I remember that moment as if it happened yesterday, the way he smiled at me, the happiness, the dwarfs and the animals dancing around us, the beautiful castle shining above the clouds, well everything. All of my memories from the past where still left, when I first met my prince, the dwarfs and my animal friends.
I wished I could stop thinking about those memories, but they are too good to be forgotten.
