By Narvinya

Romance / Fantasy

Prologue 1: Kingdom of France

Sometime in the middle of the 16th century in the country of Europe, there stood the country of France. The country where romance bloomed, filled with peace and prosperity. The capital, Paris stood amidst the land, pouring and spreading passionate love throughout the country.

The land of love was ruled by a King. Being a powerful man, he reigned his country towards a rising golden era. During these moments of time, the country was rich with resources and a wide seas of trades all over the world. People led a good life with a stable income and a healthy lifestyle.

There was also a prince in the kingdom. He was charming, handsome. His look could struck people in the heart. Despite his appearance, he was a snobbish, arrogant prince who only look up to beautiful things. He judged people and things by their looks and he indulged himself in his bed of leisure filled with red wine and red roses while he stayed away from the commoners’ life.

The king was worried by his only son’s attitude and had tried many ways to teach him the right thing but those always end up in deaf ears. As the prince continue to enjoy his life full of pleasantry, he did not realize things started taking its dark turn…

One night there was a storm in the country, the lightning rolled and the thunder roared in the dark sky. There was a knock on the door, came as a rush.

The prince, apparently passed the door answered it and found him face to face with an old woman. Her skin were wrinkled and her white hair was in a tousled mess. She asked to take shelter from the prince.

The prince, despised her looks shooed her away into the storm, not even having a second thought. When the king questioned about this, he just shook it off. Who would care for an old hag? This thing was soon wiped off from the prince mind.

The effort of the king to build a golden era full of historic means to the country soon crumbled into pieces. Not long after, the country of France was invaded by an unknown force. People lived in fear, the country economy had a drastic drop, famine spread like wild fire across the country. Slowly, the land became barren and many people died of illness and starvation.

The king had come to his last stand, sacrificing himself till the end of protecting the country. Yet, the invasion continued. It was then the invaders entered the elegant castle of France where they met the prince.

“What are you guys doing here? GET OUTTA HERE, NOW!!!” The prince, unaware of the situation, demanded them.

One of the invaders pull out the cloak to reveal her face, it was the lady whom he had chased out during that stormy night. Pointing towards him, she said, “You, who only adored things on their appearance and does not appreciate inner beauty, is not worth to inherit this prosperous kingdom. I curse thee, to live in misery until when you learned your lesson.” With that, they vanished, living the broken down kingdom and the prince alone. Soon, the castle began shaking, the prince and all his servants began to change their form.

Before the prince realized, his body soon took in the form of a green little creature called the frog. And, he will have to continue the rest of his life in that form…
