He snuck out at night to play with his toys

When his older sister found him and took him away

But they will see each other again, the next night

and this time he will be sure not to get caught


continued from part one…..

Since i don’t want to turn this into a really long story, I’ll skip ahead a year or two.

The two started seeing each other frequently after that. About a year later Prince Gavin asked Natalie to marry him, she said yes. There was a grand wedding, filled with commoners and royalty all around. The day after the wedding, Natalie decided to explore the enormous castle which was now her home. She had some how managed  to find her way to the dungeon, by getting lost in the incredibly long hallways. When she entered the dark musky room, her common sense told her to turn around, to go back , but her curiosity over powered her. The room was filled with mold, spiders, and rats, and it reeked of death. When she walked over to the other side of the room, the door suddenly slammed shut, and would not open again. She screamed for help, but no body came to her aid.

The moon was up, bright, and full by the time a guard had found her.The prince became worried when she hadn’t returned after many hours, and sent a search party to look for her. When they entered, the prince stepped back in horror, shock, and being mystified. She looked beautiful, yet monstrous. In a panic, the guards attacked, forcing Natalie to run around them down the long corridors. When they finally caught her, she was cornered on a balcony at the very top of the castle, towering over the kingdom. They were shoving pointy spears and swords that glimmered in the moon light. Her only choices were to be taken away to who knows where, or to jump. She chose to jump, and with her long leathery wings took flight into the night, never to be seen again.

And she knew that she would forever and always be misunderstood.

Once upon a time, there was a fair maiden, the most beautiful and elegant in all the land. She had long blond hair, tall, and flawless as thought possible.Tho as perfect as she may have seemed, she had a deep dark secret, one she feared to share with anyone. When she was born, her father made a deal with a witch in order to get food for him and his only daughter, Natalie, to survive after his wife had passed away. The deal included giving away his daughter when she reached the young age of five. So with the short time he had with her, he tried the best he could to care for her. When the witch came to collect her payment, Natalie refused to leave her fathers side, infuriating the old witch. As a punishment she put a curse on Natalie, turning her into a half bat, half girl when the moon was at its fullest.

One day when Natalie, now in her late teens, was walking through the market in order get food for her and the witch, who insisted that she called her mam, was looking at a stand full of fruits, deciding which was the best to choose. After she took her pick and paid the man minding the stand, she backed up and accidentally bumped into some one knocking their things to the ground. She quickly apologized, and picked everything up without looking at the person. When she handed them back, she saw that the person was hooded and could not see their face.

“Watch it!” they shouted so suddenly that Natalie flinched away. The hood fell of the their head, and she saw who it was. It was Prince Gavin, the heir to the throne, as soon as King Leon passed away, which was bound to be soon, because he so old, around 98 if she wasn’t mistaken. When prince Gavin’s eyes locked with hers, all the anger drained from his face, only leaving the look of being fantasized.  Gavin apologized for being so rude, and Natalie apologized for not watching where she was going, and the two struck up a conversation.

Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake.

Only one young faery—Knife—is determined to find out where her people’s magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She’s not afraid of anything—not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes.

review from Goodreads

You could say I was playing hide and seek

But what I was really doing was hiding from the camera

For if i did not, we would not get anything done
