THE PRINCESS AND THE BRICKLAYER
Short Story written by: Alejandra V.
Once upon a time…
There was a princess called Maggie, she was tall and as white as snow. She had red lips like a rose and her hair was brown. She had light blue eyes and was very nice and kind.
She was in love with a bricklayer called Kevin. He was tall, had brown hair and tanned skin. He was strong, had dark eyes, was kind and he was never angry.
He was also in love with her, but never said anything, unlike Princess Maggie who told the whole kingdom, that is, the whole kingdom except for her dad, because would have been very angry. Her mum knew everything.
One day, Maggie decided to tell her dad, she thought he deserved to know and could not continue to hide the secret from him.
Instead of telling him directly, she prepared a surprise for Kevin. She sent him many flowers made into the shape of the words: “I love you”. He was very happy and went running to the castle. The princess was waiting for him, and they kissed. The father saw them, went up to them and screamed:
– “None of my daughters will be with a bricklayer!”
And separated them.
Maggi said: “It doesn´t matter what he is, everyone is equal, I love him above all. If you loved me, you would let me be with him. Just because someone has more money than another or different surname doesn’t mean that we are different”.
The father went quiet and after a few minutes said:
“Daughter, you are right, I love you and I will allow you to be with him, because I can see that you love each other and that everyone is equal”.
And they lived happily ever after..
