FC: The story Of our love
1: Written for you, Brandon with love always from your wife
3: Once upon a time, in the land far from here, many years ago, there was a young princess named Alicia. The princess would often sit in her room, in the highest tower of the castle, and dream of the magical day when her prince would finally come for her and sweep her off her feet.
4: Although true love had yet to find Princess Alicia, she was not lonely, as she had her friends to keep her company. One day while the princess was at her friends palace, a prince arrived to show off his new royal weapon. Princess Alicia was a little afraid of the prince at first and she thought he hated her. But in time, after getting to know one another, and realizing they were alot alike, they become the best of friends and took to seeing eachother regularly.
7: After many months had past the princess discovered that she was in love with the prince! She finally figured out why she got so jealous over the maidens the prince had fancied and why she would always choose to be with Brandon over any of her courters. The princess realized that sometimes love does not come and sweep you off your feet all at once. Sometimes love is a gradual thing that can happen over time when you don't even realize it. Princess Alicia acted upon her feelings that night with a kiss. A kiss that changed everything.
8: Soon Alicias father, the king, learned about his daughter and her suitor and was furious. He was not ready for his only daughter to grow up so soon. He wanted to keep her locked up in the castle for many more years. The king called for the prince to be beheaded at once, but being that the prince was a royal, and had commited no true crime, the king had to settle for a different punishment.
11: He decided to place the princess under a spell. The king believed that if he could keep Alicia and Prince Brandon apart that their love would soon wither and die. Under the kings spell Alicia was forbidden to see or speak to the prince. For over a month the princess was held captive in the castle. Finally Alicia realized that she must follow her own heart and she stood up against the king and the spell was broken!
12: Princess Alicia moved all of her belongings into Brandons castle. She knew she had found the love of her life and wanted nothing more than to stay together forever. Unfortunatly Prince Brandon had to leave for war and since the prince and princess were both still very young they had a very difficult time with this. Many evils and temptations led them astray and their relationship suffered. Alicia moved back home.
15: Over the next few years the prince courted other maidens and the princess had other suitors. But sometimes, when her mind would wander, the princess would think about Brandon and wonder what he was doing. She feared that she may never be able to find someone that she would feel so strongly about again.
16: After many years Prince Brandon returned home from war and Alicia saw him again. At the time the princess had a courter but once she was with Brandon again the thoughts she had had over the last few years were confirmed. Noone would ever compared to Prince Brandon. She had feared that she would not be able to find anyone else but the truth was that she did not want to. She wanted noone but the prince. Luckily, Prince Brandon confirmed his true feelings by taking Princess Alicias hand in marriage.
19: Although their love was strong, the prince and princess were alot alike which caused many struggles and battles with eachother. Throughout all their conflicts over the years they never once gave up on eachother and they both were still very much in love.
20: A year after they wed, the princess discovered that they were soon going to be welcoming a new life into the world together. Nine months later a beautiful baby boy, Zackary James was born. The princess had never been so happy then at that moment. With her wonderful prince, who fate had brought back into her life, and their brand new son.
23: Unfortunatly, Prince Brandon was sent to war once again and Alicia was heart broken. But she had their bundle of joy to keep her spirits up. Though it was not easy for the prince and princess, their love did not waiver. And now, after what seemed like forever, finally, Princess Alicias true love has been brought back to her.
24: So here we are, you are back once more for me to love. No matter how many times we have been apart, or how long the separation lasts, my love for you has never changed. I can not write out the rest of our lives for us in this book. Everyday we are together is a part of our story. And even though it does not always seem like a fairy tale, I know that our love story will end with.. 'And They All Lived Happily Ever After '
