Royal Reflections

__________________________________________

A deep, bubbling creek winds through the woods, rays of sunlight dancing over the surface of the clear water. On the grassy bank, there is a little girl. She wears a torn and dirty dress, and her short brown hair hangs down around her face. A wilted flower crown rests on her head, entangled in her hair.

She leans against a tree, a book in her hands, staring intently at the pages as she reads of an exciting battle between a dragon and a pegasus. The story is enchanting, filled with princesses and knights and castles.

Finally, she finishes the book and closes it with a longing sigh. She wishes she could be a princess, and be beautiful.Β She sets her book aside and leans over the edge of the bank, staring distastefully at herself in the water. One hand reaches down, and she runs her finger over her rippling reflection, wishing she could erase it.

Slowly, she closes her eyes, imagining with all her might.

Her short, choppy hair becomes long, chocolate ringlets.

Her dirty dress becomes a beautiful gown, trimmed with pearls and lace.

Her wilting flowers become a golden crown, embedded with rubies.

Timidly, she opens one eye, and peers at her reflection once more. This time, she smiles happily as she fingers the pearls around her neck.

At last, she is a princess.
