Part One: Sun Kissed
Before there were computers or TVs or telephones or even ice
cream, there lived a prince on Earth.
Of course, the world had many princes, but this prince was
different. He was the prince of the
Earth and its defender. His parents
died when he was at the young age of four, so he lived alone in the castle,
except for all of his servants. Still,
the prince was lonely, so he made a wish when he was became six that he would
have someone with him all the time, day and night.
When the prince was around twelve, he finally got his
wish. Far from Earth, in the cold
darkness of space, lived two princesses.
They were different than any other princesses. These princesses were special.
They had neither a mother nor a father but were born like the stars
were. One princess lived on the moon
and the other in the hot of the sun.
The princess of the moon was younger than the prince on Earth and the princess
in the sun. The earth age of the moon
princess was four years younger than the Earth prince and the sun princess was
the same Earth age as the prince.
It was the princesses' duty to watch over the prince. The
princess of the sun watched him during the day, slept during the night and the
princess of the moon watched him during the night and slept during the day. However, the two princesses did not know of
each other so they worried about the prince when they could not watch him. One year later, both princesses fell madly
in love with the prince and took their duty very seriously.
The prince did not feel as lonely as he used to. But he did not see the princesses. They were like spirits or angels, watching
over him closely. They did have bodies,
of course, but they were different than an Earth body. The more the princesses watched him, the
more they wanted to be seen by him.
The princess of the sun was called Mia. Her hair was the color of fire and it fell
down to the middle of her back. Her
eyes were a deep shade of green. On her
forehead was a golden sun. The garment
she wore was a shiny golden dress with hanging sleeves. When she traveled to Earth, her mount was
the bird of fire, Phoenix. She was
happy during the time of late spring, through the warm sweet days of summer to
early fall because of the long days and she could watch over the prince
longer. But from late fall, through the
bitter cold days of winter to early spring, the days were shorter, the nights
longer, and worried about the prince because she did not get enough time to see
him as much as the days of summer. She
made sure that the prince was warm throughout the day. When the prince was
upset, she soothed him with her warm kisses and embrace. They made him feel better, though, he did
not know why. He had no idea that
someone had been comforting him. When
the sun came up, she would kiss him to awaken him.
The princess who lived on the moon was called Serena. Her hair was the color of gold and it fell
down past her knees in streamers. Her eyes were the color of the sky and an
upturned crescent moon graced her forehead.
Her dress was white with short-cupped sleeves and golden rings around
the top. When the sun went down, she
woke up and went to the Earth, riding a winged horse, Pegasus. She made sure Darien slept soundly and had
sweet dreams. She did not see him much
when he was awake and that made her sad because she loved the sound of his
voice and the blueness of his eyes. But
she was happy that she at least was able to spend time with him while he
slept. She kissed him goodnight right
before he slept and if he did have a bad dream, all she had to do was kiss him
Five years passed and the two princesses fell more and more
in love with the prince every time they went down to see him.
In the middle of the warm summer months, the sun was close
to rising. It was an hour before dawn and the princess of the sun could not
wait to wake up her prince for the new day so she woke up early. Although it only took a few minutes to get to
the Earth from the sun because the Phoenix bird was the fastest bird, Mia
wanted to get to her prince.
Prince Darien, the prince of Earth, slept soundly in his
bed. As the sun was just about to rise
of the horizon, Mia arrived on the Earth.
Darien began to feel the warmth of the sun sink through his window, and
with the sunbeam, appeared Mia. She
smiled and floated over to his bedside, brushed a few of his hairs away with
her fingers and kissed his forehead to wake him up.
The Prince yawned and opened his eyes. He looked up in Mia's direction and for a
moment, Mia thought Darien saw her. She smiled brightly and he walked passed
"Can you see me?" Mia asked.
Darien did not reply.
Her smile turned to a frown. "You can't, can you?"
Although he still could not see her, she remained by his
side throughout the day. She whispered
sweet nothings in his ear, even though she knew he could not hear or see
her. She watched him do all the things
he loved and wished that she could be more a part of it.
"Prince Darien," one of the servants said.
"Tomorrow we are going to have a ball," he said,
"we are going to invite all the princesses to join. You are eighteen now, young man and you need
Mia smiled, 'Now is my chance,' she thought.
"A ball?" Darien muttered, "You expect me to
meet the girl of my dreams at a ball?"
"It was your parent's wish before they died," the
servant said. "You need to carry
on the family name. You will still have to do this even if they were still
"Love takes time," Darien said, "you
certainly won't choose the bride for me, will you?"
"No," the servant replied, "That is not my
choice to make for you. But you have to
chose one by tomorrow."
"When is the ball?" Darien asked.
"It starts at sunset and goes on to midnight," he
"Sunset?" Mia gasped, "no!" she came
closer to Darien and slid her arms around him, though she knew he could not
feel his touch. "Please, say
As if he did hear her, Darien said, "No, sunset is not
a good time. Let's have it tomorrow at
"Noon!" Mia cried. "That's perfect!"
"Noon, your highness?" the servant wrinkled his
nose. "Are you sure?"
"Yes," Darien confirmed, "Noon on to
midnight. The ball can start with a
"That sounds like an awfully long time," the
"I want a lot of time to choose," Darien said,
"It's summer, man! The sun sets
three hours before midnight; how do you expect me to find the woman I want in
"As you wish." The servant left.
Mia breathed a sigh of relief and held Darien onto Darien
again, wishing that he could feel her, see her and dance with her.
But Darien still did not know of the princesses that watched
over him. If he could see them, it
would make all the difference. Darien
walked over to the river and sat down as he looked into the waters. Mia sat down next to him and touched his
"I know you can't hear me," Mia said, "but
I'm the princess of the sun. I've been watching over you when you became twelve. I watch you during the day. Remember the wish you made? You made a wish that there would be someone
there with you day and night. I come and visit you during the day. But I don't know who comes to you at
Darien lied down on his back and looked up at the sun then
closed his eyes, moaning softly as the sun began to warm him up. "I love the sun," he breathed, as
if he heard everything Mia said.
Mia gasped in surprise, "You do? You can hear me?" she leaned over him.
Darien didn't say anything.
"I just wish that there was some how you could hear
me," Mia said. "Then everything
would be so different. I love you so
much. You will not find anyone in that
ball tomorrow that will love you like I do." She kissed his forehead and when she raised her head, she saw how
content he looked. She ran her finger
over his lips, wanting to kiss them.
Feeling that this may be her only chance, she leaned over and brushed
her lips softly over his and then kissed him.
Soft at first, then it grew.
Darien could feel immense warmth. The sun was shining brightly upon him. He never felt the sun this warm before. Some men would have left because the sun was too hot, but Darien
remained lying down. He was in the
shade, after all so the sun did not seem too hot that it was burning his
skin. There was a sweet taste in his
mouth. He couldn't tell what it was,
but it was nothing like he had ever tasted.
It was warm and sweet. He
savored it. It was almost he was
drinking sunshine. He opened his eyes
to see if he could find out what was giving him this sweet taste, but he saw
nothing. Although he did not see anything, he could sense that there was something,
something was there.
Mia lifted up from giving him the kiss and looked back at
Darien. His eyes were open in concentration. He still could not see the princess before
him but he had a feeling that he was not alone.
"Can you see me now?" Mia asked.
He wondered if he would ever get his wish that someone would
come visit him. If he could choose, he
would want a woman that was like no other.
A princess that would follow him wherever he went and stayed with him
day and night. Certainly, he did feel a
little more content now than he did 6 years ago before the two princesses came
to see him. He felt like there were
angels watching him. He couldn't quite
explain it; there something was just different. Still, he wondered if he would ever find the one he loves.
"If only you could see me," Mia hoped aloud.
If Darien knew that it was Mia who kissed him, he would kiss
her as much as he could, just so he could get another drop of sunshine in his
