Chapter 1

My Mountain

Maria's POV

The hills are alive with the sound of music

With songs they have sung for a thousand years

The hills fill my heart with the sound of music

My heart wants to sing every song it hears

I spun around on my beautiful mountain and continued

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds

That rise from the lake to the trees

My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies

From a church on a breeze

I stood still and let the beautiful summer air breeze through my shoulder length golden blonde hair and continued

To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over stones on its way

To sing through the night like a Lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely

I know I will hear what I've heard before

My heart will be blessed with the sound of music

And I'll sing once more

I hate thinking I will eventually have to give up my mountain when I become a nun. I could stay on this mountain and sing all day. Unfortunately, I have to go (Church bells chiming). I said "Oh no not again. I can't be late again" and began running until I tripped and rolled down the mountain.

Author's note. Sorry if this is too short for some people. I couldn't think of an introduction for Maria so, I stuck with the 1965 movie's introduction. Please don't be harsh this is my first Fanfiction ever. I do not own TSOM or its characters. I'm just a fan and decided to try out fanfiction since I've read lots of fanfiction TSOM stories. My favorites are My Fair Governess, Forbidden Thoughts & Visitors.
