Once Upon a Time...

Once upon a time there was a beautiful lady. She was a princess and made her home with the fairies who magically braided her raven black hair into pastel-colored braids.
She wasn't vain, per say, but she sure did enjoy looking at herself in the mirror. She knew that she was lovely, as did...
...a very handsome prince. The prince had to wear a mask because his handsomeness was so great that any normal lady would swoon at sight of him.
The princess wasn't normal, though. She had special eyes that saw past outside-looks and saw into the heart of each person. When she met the prince, she saw only his kind heart and the way he remembered others and tried to make them feel comfortable and important.
The prince and the princess had a lot in common and so they bonded closely over important things like dress-up outfits, their ABCs and which new English words they had learned.
Eventually the Prince made a decision and he posed a question to the beautiful little princess.
It was a very important question, so he held her hand while he asked it. The prince was very gentlemanlike and didn't want the princess to feel uncomfortable and he wanted her to answer with a steady heart.

"Will you... play on the swings with me?" he gently asked.
She nodded happily, and they both waited for their preschool teachers to help them change out of their outfits so that they could run outside to play.

 And they lived happily ever after!
