Modern day fairy tale.
Once upon a time there was a beautiful young princess. She wore the prettiest dresses and had the cutest dog in the world. But there was one thing noone knew. She had a secret not even her parents the king and the queen knew of. She was afraid. Afraid of the world outside the castle. She had nightmares at night that there were evil monsters and dragons trying to eat her. Her parents did everything to try and encourage her to leave the castle but to no avail. Until that one night in spring: It was the night before her 20th birthday when she dreamed that she was walking along the river on her parents estate. She sat down on the grass and enjoyed the sunshine when suddenly she looked into the most beautiful eyes she had ever seen. They were blue and they belonged to a young man who just stood there watching her. “Sorry i did not mean to scare you Kate.” The princess was alarmed:”How do you know my name?” “I can not tell you that but i have been watching you for quite some time now and i want to help you.” “Help? Me? I do not understand.” “You will understand soon enough.” Then the young man was gone and the princess woke up. She had the same dream for two weeks in a row. Then, her dream changed: The young man smiled at her and said “Take my hand and come with me.” “Why?” “I know you are afraid of the world outside. I want to show you how beautiful it can be.” The princess was still scared but somehow, she trusted the young man so she took his hand.
Then her dreams stopped. She was sad because she liked him and wanted to see him again. Two years later: The princess is two years older now and a lot happened since but she never forgot HIM. Then one day she was walking along the river on her parents estate and she was not dreaming this time. She sat down on the grass and closed her eyes. “Kate.” She opened her eyes and it was him standing there smiling. “You? I must be dreaming.” “No. No you are not dreaming.”But how…?” “I was in your dreams because i wanted to meet you and that was the only way for me to make contact and find out where to meet you.” “What is your name?” “Daniel.”
Daniel and Kate spent the rest of the day sitting in the grass and chatting. They met up every day after that and two years later, they got married. Daniel helped Kate to overcome her fear and it was with his help that she left the castle for the first time in her life. Years later their kids asked them:”Daddy, how did you meet mummy?” Daniel looked at Kate, smiled and finally replied:
