Princess Piggy

by Holly Stacey -

Princess Hannah lived in a big castle with her parents, King and Queen Nettle. She had a huge bedroom and five servants who were always looking after her. Everything she wanted, she got.

I am the princess who has the best of everything in the whole wide world, thought Princess Hannah as she looked out her bedroom window at her fifteen horses. (Each one had a different task. One was for riding, one for jumping, another for taking on walks, and so on). But then, one of her friends, Princess Lisa, came by for a visit. She was riding a unicorn.

“I want one of those!” Princess Hannah said to one of her servants--the one with the wild green hair. She could never remember his name.

He bowed and left the room. Hannah knew it wouldn’t be too long before she got a unicorn even better than the one Princess Lisa had.

“I’m getting a unicorn too,” said Princess Hannah to her friend.

Lisa blushed. “I don’t think there are any more! And a unicorn chooses his princess, not the other way around.”

The torch blazed with blue fire and Hannah jumped back with a squeal of freight. She turned to run down the corridor, but the blue fire leaped out of the torch and exploded into a million twinkling fairy lights in front of her. When the smoke had cleared, there was, standing in its place, a beautiful (and rather large) fairy wearing a blue glittering gown.

“Goodness, gracious me, what a fuss you’ve been making today,” the fairy said.

Princess Hannah just stared.

“Well, that’s not polite.  I am, after all, your fairy godmother. Are you not going to welcome me into your home?”

The princess was still a little too stunned to speak, but it dawned on her that she was just a bit closer to getting her wish of a unicorn. “You ARE in my home,” sneered Hannah. “And you can start by giving me my unicorn.” Princess Hannah started counting points on her fingers. “I want him to have a white mane, but purple hair, golden hooves, and…”
