Years long ago before Scrooge McDuck's search for the treasure of Collie Baba. There was another time and place that Merlock had destroyed many lives mostly the love of a princess and her knight. It was Arbia as everyone was celebrating the nineteenth birthday of their princess and future queen.
As a dark brown female mouse with dark almond eyes and long black hair. She wore a necklace with a blue teardrop wearing a white dress and a blue band that had a red gem in the middle with two gold diamond earrings. She stared out the balcony of her bedroom down at her people.
A servant boy stood beside her fanning her with a large green leaf.
''You know you don't have to do everything I say or do you and everyone has a free will'' said Rindra with her elbows resting on the edge.
''Yes princess, sorry princess it won't happen again'' he said as he stopped fanning her.
''And please stop calling me princess'' said Rindra giving a gentle giggle.
''Yes princess you bring so much wisdom and kindness to this fair land like your parents'' he said.
''Yes mother and father would be sadly missed'' said Rindra as she felt her body tremble as a tear rolled down her face.
''Oh I am sorry Princ - I mean Rindra I didn't mean to offend you'' he said.
''No it is alright you may go now'' said Rindra as she heard the feet leaving the room.
She stood by herself as the wind swirl softly around her. She remembered since she was born her mother had slowly died as her father held his newborn in his arms watching his wife die. Rindra blamed herself thinking if she hadn't been born then her mother would still be alive.
Then she was little at the time then it still stung then when she was only a child her father had headed off to battle with his men leaving his daughter at the palace with her nursemaid and the servants. She heard news from the father of her friend Allias that her father had died in battle from a mysterious cause.
''Your father was a good man Rindra he will be gravely miss princess'' he said as Rindra's nursemaid tried hard to comfort her as she buried her head into her chest.
Rindra remembered she was nine as ten years had passed. Then she heard the sound of a horse braying in the courtyard. She looked down to see her friend's short copper hair as his blue eyes sparkled in the sunlight as sweat poured down his white fur. As he wore blue armour as he rode on a brown chestnut horse.
She gave a smiled as she held a secret longing to join the knight Allias. They had been friends through their fathers. Allias looked up at the balcony. As Rindra's heart flutter as Allias gallop on his horse. He felt at one with the animal. Rindra wonder would it ever worked out between them her being a mouse and him being a rat.
''Allais my boy come here'' said his father's voice as he rode up to him.
''I have word we are needed at the southern past'' he said.
''But father how can I leave the people unguarded and Rindra she had been through enough with the loss of her parents'' said Allais.
''Yes my boy but soon she will be given the task of choosing a suitor for her husband it is law'' he said on a white stallion.
''Yes father'' said Allais understanding his father's orders.
He turned his head to see Rindra had moved away from the balcony. As Rindra walked towards the room as she had the curtain drew behind her. As the room had a wardrobe filled of grand dresses and clothes with tiny shoes that fitted her small feet, a bed with satin sheets and pillows and a dresser as on it sat a comb, a bowl of powder and a vase.
She picked up the comb brushing it through her hair as she hummbed a tune to herself.
''Happy birthday Rindra'' said a voice as he placed his hands over her eyes when she put the comb back onto the dresser.
''Oh Allais how many times do we have to play this game I know it is you who plays this charming game'' said Rindra.
Allais gave a sly grin after putting his hands off her as the two stared back in the mirror.
''I guess it is a habit I can't help'' said Allais.
Rindra stared at him her childhood friend was handsome for his age of twenty one. For she knew they had first became friends after her mother's death. As the painful memory brought the sadness back.
''You don't like my present'' asked Allais holding a white loctus flower.
''No it is beautfiul thank you Allais I will put it in some water'' said Rindra taking the flower from him giving him a kiss on the cheek.
Allais stood in stun silence the kiss felt as one given by an angel or a creation of light. Allais came to as he gave a cough.
''I am sorry Rindra but I must leave father asks for my services'' said Allais.
''Go he needs you don't worry I will be still here waiting for your return'' said Rindra as she stared sweetly into his eyes.
Allais stared back as a dreamily sigh escaped his lips. She did look more lovely than any girl as she appeared in the glow sparkling up his dark rainy nights. They both snapped out of their thoughts. As he walked out the room.
''Princess you know he is a knight and is certainly not a suitable match for you were to marry a prince'' said her nursemaid wandering into the room.
She was an old grey fur mouse with her dark eyes had a dull look in them as she wore a light pink dress as her pink nose wrinkled a this.
''But what if it can happen'' said Rinda in a low voice.
''What was that you were muttering princess'' she said in a grumble.
''Nothing'' said Rindra.
As a trumpet blew to signal the guards and knights off on their farewell. Rindra rushed to her balcony. She caught a glimpse of Allais passing by as she waved and hoping her friend returned to her in one piece and alive. She gave a sad sigh knowing she was left alone.
She wished Allais had taken her with him on his travel but she knew her people came first. As she sat on the throne in the throne room as many came seeking and asking her advice. Even those from poor to the richest families with many problems that she gave a straight answer and would see to it at once. As the day draw into night Rindra felt her eyes begin to droop heavily.
''Princess'' said her nursemaid giving her a soft shake.
''Yes'' said Rindra
. ''You must rest you were letting your duties take over you I know you mean well'' she said as she helped Rindra to her feet.
Rindra thought a good night's rest could be the answer as she walked up the stairs leaving the room as she entered the bedroom as she lay down on her bed as she fell into the land of dreams. Unaware a bird sat on the window waiting for when the princess had left the room.
As it flew down onto the floor. Green sparks surrounded it as it changed into a figure.
''Who are you get out at once'' she said entered the throne room.
''Just a person that knows the princess's parents and have business with your mistress'' said the figure.
''Well you can't right now she is resting at the moment'' she said about to raise the alarm.
''Look how foolish you are there is no one to protect you or the princess I made sure the place was made unguarded'' he said.
''What you mean you made sure it to be unguarded'' she said raising an eyebrow.
Inside of her told her to keep him far away from Rindra as poosible. As she blocked the stairs using her whole body. He gave a wicked laugh at her as the sparks flew from his talisman as it flew straight at her. She gave a scream as she fell to the floor.
Rindra awoke upon hearing the scream wondering what was going on as she slipped out of bed down the stairs she saw in horroras the sparks grew into long vines as they began to strangle the prey trapped inside.
''What are you doing to her stop it at once'' said Rindra as his gaze fell on her.
''It is a simple spell there is no need to be frighten princess it will only teach her a lesson not to deal with matters she can't understand'' he said coldly at her.
''Who are you I demanded you to leave the palace at once'' said Rindra trying to sound brave.
''Actually I am rather enjoying this place I see why your father became king'' he said.
''He became king not for riches or power but to help his people'' said Rindra then she stared curiously at him.
''You knew him'' she asked timidly.
''Yes I did and your mother as I see you have her beuaty and noble heart'' he said about to lay a hand on her face but Rindra moved back in fear.
She began to run outside but he blocked her path
. ''Do not test me princess you are lucky that my plans include you in staying alive'' he growled at her.
''Who are you what do you want'' said Rindra.
''My name is Merlock'' he said as Rindra could do nothing but watch on as she watched her nursemaid being crushed to death.
