All the Prince wanted was a Princess of his own, to be loved and be allowed to love her in return but he did not trust anyone. With no trust there was no love and the Prince remained lonely, watching as his friends found Princesses of their own.
One day, years after the Queen had left, he met a Princess that he loved immediately but he could say nothing to let her know how he felt. What a dilemma for the lonely little Prince! Everything he had ever wanted was right in front of him but he didn't trust her or himself to woo her. Eventually, after kissing lots of frogs, she found a Prince of her own. The little Prince was lonelier than ever.
Then another Princess came into his life, She was as lonely as he was because she was trapped in a run-down cottage with an evil witch, Eventually the lonely Prince and the lonely Princess fell in love and, much later than that, each other's arms.
The little Prince was lonely no more,
Then, as is the way with love sometimes, the Princess left. The Prince was suddenly more lonely than he had ever been before. He roamed the land looking for a new Princess but none could equal her beauty, kindness or immaculate spirit. The Princesses he tried to love were no replacement for her.
To defeat the loneliness the Prince visited a wizard who left words of great power emblazoned on his flesh. A talisman against the fear, a source of comfort to banish the loneliness.
Time passed and the Price tried once again to woo his Princess. She missed him as much as he missed her and they lived happily ever after.
