There once lived a princess named Eleanor. She was a very beautiful and intelligent young girl. Yet, she was unhappy.
Everybody kept telling her, that she had everything she could’ve ever needed or wanted: the beauty, the brains, the fortune and a young, mighty prince to whom she was supposed to get married to. And they were right. In theory, the young princess’ life seemed perfect. But in reality, it was far from it.
The princess felt alone and scared, even when she was surrounded by people and was completely safe. And her prince. He didn’t make her happy. But not because he didn’t try. He simply couldn’t. She didn’t love him. She loved someone else. Someone kind, warmhearted, beautiful and also a royalty, therefore their love seemed acceptable. However, it was not.
On her wedding day the princess cried and cried, until she had no more tears left. Her pain seemed unbearable, her heart was ripping into two. As her maid opened the door and told her:
“Miss, we’ll have to start soon.”
