Contest among Princesses
ONCE upon a time in a land far far away lived the four of the most beautiful princesses in all of fairytale land. They were all trying to impress the handsome prince
Prince Christos was coming to fairy tale land in one day to marry the smartest, most beautiful princess in the whole Kingdom. The first princess’s name was Aleena. Princess Aleena had the most beautiful long blond hair and had magical shoes.
The second princess was Jennine. Princess Jennine was a beautiful brown haired princess from Egypt and rode to fairy tale land on her beautiful pink pony. The third princess’s name was Marineli. Princess Marineli was a beautiful red haired mermaid princess from the sea with a magic wand.
And the forth was princess Holly. Princess Holly was the most beautiful princess of all with long blond hair and was extremely intelligent with no magic
When the prince arrived he told the four princesses that they were all too beautiful to choose just one princess so he told them they will compete in a contest
and the winner of that contest would become his new bride and will live happily ever after with him in the Crystal Palace. The contest was a contest of who could get across lake Imagine the fastest.
Princess Aleena was the first princess to swim as quickly as possible across the lake. She decided that if she could tread water, she could make it all.
But she wasn’t sure if she would be the fastest even though she was wearing her magic shoes. But she did it and made it all the way but it took her five hours. The prince said “Good job! You made it all the way and 5 hours is pretty fast. I don’t think anyone can beat that!” Now it was time for princess Jennine to cross the lake as fast as possible.
Princess Jennine decided that if she does the back stroke than she can make it all the way and maybe even make the best time. She tapped her magical shoes together three times and jumped in the water! she did the backstroke and made across the lake in four hours. The prince said “Great job! You made it all the way and four hours is very fast. I don’t think anyone can beat that!”
Now it was time for princess Marineli to cross the lake as fast as possible. Marineli was an expert swimmer and laughed at the other princesses while she said “I am a mermaid. I am the best
AND fastest swimmer in the whole world and will easily beat all of you and win the prince’s heart!” Princess Marineli waved her magic wand and swam very quickly cross the lake in record time! She swam all the way across the lake in just one hour.
The prince said “Terrific job! You made it all the way and one hour is extremely fast. I don’t think anyone can possibly beat that!” The final contestant was princess Holly. Princess Holly sis not know how to swim at all and was extremely upset. She thought that if she tried to swim across
that she might drown under water. All the other princesses began to scoff at her.
about the name calling and walked over to Princess Holly and said “A true Magical princess can beat that time even if she cannot swim. Think hard about how you can cross the lake faster than anyone that was swimming”. Right then Princess Holly had an idea! Not just an idea but the greatest idea ever! Princess Holly walked over to princess Aleena and asked “May I borrow your magic shoes please?” Princess Aleena was confused but gave them to Princess Holly.
Then Princess Holly walked up to princess Marineli and asked “May I borrow your magic wand please?”. Princess Marineli looked confused as to why she wanted the magic wand but let her borrow it anyways. Next, Princess Holly went up to Princess Jennine and said “May I borrow your beautiful pony please?”. Princess
Jennine looked puzzled too but kindly replied “Yes you can borrow her but be very careful.” Prince Christos asked Holly, “What do you need all of these things for?”. Princess Holly said “Just Watch!” Princess Holly put on the magical shoes, waved the magic wand at the pony and the pony turned golden yellow. Then she walked the Pony to the edge of the lake and climbed on her back and tapped her shoes together three times and said “light as a feather, as fast as a cheetah. light as a feather, as fast as a cheetah. light as a feather, as fast as a cheetah.” All of a sudden the magical golden pony began galloping across the top of the water gaining more and more speed until it was galloping as fast as a cheetah!
Princess Holly made it across the lake in 20 seconds on top of the water! Prince Christos ran over to her and said “Princess Holly, that was the most magical thing I have ever seen. You did it! You won the contest and you have also won my hand in marriage. Princess Holly will you be my bride?”
Right when Princess Holly was about to reply yes, her father the king of Fairytale land, spoke up and said “My daughter Holly is a very intelligent young princess and has a great imagination and will make you a very happy prince. Prince Christos, you have my blessing.” Prince Christos repeated himself, “Princess Holly you have won my heart. Will you be my bride?” Princess Holly replied, Yes! That would make me very very happy!”
