Chapter 1: Separate Beginnings
A common town lay out in the boundaries of a certain country. In one house, a young female ring-tailed lemur was looking out at the home she lived in. "This is what I have always known, but I just never feel happy with it. I'm not sure why, but I always have the feeling that I'm looking for something more." she said. The young lemur's name was Julia, and she had dreams; those dreams were to be something more than what she was familiar with.
That night, Julia was in her room and she pulled back the wrecked but stable curtain to see the castle out in the distance. Julia sighed; this was what she wanted to be.
"This is what I want. I want the chance to experience what it's like to be royalty, even if it isn't very long. I'm sure they don't have any problems, at least not the ones I experience." Julia said to herself, and sat down on her old desk chair, wondering when she would get her opportunity.
If Prince Julien heard Julia say that being royalty didn't have problems, he would have thought that she wasn't being serious. He was going to next on the throne, but there was one huge issue; he didn't take a liking to any of the princesses he was shown. As he sat in his room, an aye-aye, Maurice came in. Maurice was also Julien's close friend and they had known each other for a long time.
"I don't understand what the problem is. I can understand not liking first choice, but don't you think this is going a bit too far?" Maurice asked, as Julien turned around to see him. Julien sighed; he knew that he was difficult, but he had a good reason for that.
"If I do want to go through with this, I want it to be with someone I can truly love, Maurice." Julien explained. Maurice sighed; he was one of the two candidates to be Julien's right hand man, the other being a new arrival named Brad. Maurice sat down beside Julien as the young prince looked out at the starry night sky.
"Are you sure that the right one you're looking for is out there?" Maurice asked. "I can be sure of that, Maurice. I know that there is definitely someone for me, and I'm sure that they would come to me instead of me having to go to them." Julien responded. Maurice nodded; while he didn't understand Julien sometimes, he couldn't deny that his friend was right.
"You know, I can't help but think that you're right." Maurice said. Julien smiled to hear this. He was however unaware of the fact that the one for him was someone he didn't expect it to be...
