Hey everyone! Here is my new story! I wasn't going to put it on here, but then I decided to. I know that RaspberryBloodTablets really wanted me to put this on here! Haha, so here it is Massie! Anyway, this is somewhat set in princess-like times, you know with castles and dresses and such. But it also has modern day stuff too. So anyway, here it is!
Chapter 1: Once Upon a Time...
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess named Bella. She lived in a castle in a far far away land. She had lot's of beautiful gowns and dresses, shoes and accessories. Her dark brown hair fell elegantly to her waist. She had brown eyes that were like an endless pit. A nice smile. Perfect, snow white skin. She was slender and small. She had everything a girl could ask for.
But she was unhappy. Her father, King Charlie, wanted her to marry Prince Mike.
For any other girl that wouldn't have been so bad. Prince Mike was handsome, and a lot of the girls in the kingdom craved his affection. This included Princess Bella's friend Princess Jessica. Sadly, Princess Bella did not.
Princess Bella was in love with another. Prince Edward was his name. Prince Edward was one of the most gorgeous boys out there. He had tousled bronze hair, gorgeous green eyes, and a dazzling smile. He was tall, and had a body that looked like it was carved out of granite.
The only problem; Prince Edward was from the enemy kingdom. King Charlie and King Carlisle were enemies. It was really King Charlie's fault. They kingdoms had always been enemies for hundreds of years. King Carlisle offered a chance to change the ways of the kingdom, but King Charlie did not want to. It was tradition, he had said. So they stayed enemies.
Princess Bella had met Prince Edward at the meeting to discuss whether the tradition should be changed. Princess Bella had left the meeting, because she agreed with King Carlisle, not her father.
She had walked into the Grand Garden as the sun was setting. She sat on a bench to watch it go down.
"It's twilight," Someone had said.
Princess Bella whipped her head around to face the most gorgeous boy she had ever seen.
"Y-yes," She had stuttered.
They boy smiled and sat down next to her.
"It's my favorite time of day. So beautiful. It's also the saddest in a way. The going of another day," He had told her.
Princess Bella had blushed "Wow. I've never really thought of it that way."
The boy smiled. "I'm Edward Cullen."
Princess Bella returned the smile. "So you're King Carlisle's son. I'm Isabella Swan. Just call me Bella though."
"So you're King Charlie's daughter," Prince Edward had chuckled. "I don't think that they should have a meeting to discuss whether or not to be enemies. That's why I didn't go in. If you don't want to be enemies, don't. So why did you leave the meeting?"
"I left because I don't agree with my father. He thinks we should stay enemies, because of tradition. I agree with your father. We should just get along." Princess Bella explained.
"I'm glad that you agree. I don't want to be enemies with someone as beautiful as you." Prince Edward had said, smiling.
Princess Bella had blushed a deep red, and stuttered a thank-you.
They had walked around the garden and talked for the rest of the evening. It had been dark for a long time when Prince Edward's driver came to tell him it was time to leave.
Princess Bella had sighed happily and went into the castle. It wasn't long before she found out was the decision was. To stay enemies.
Princess Bella was so upset. She had gone to her room and cried herself to sleep.
The next night, as she sulked around the Grand Garden, she found Prince Edward. He had been waiting to talk to her.
The two decided they would not let their families separate them. They would meet every night they could in the garden. So they did.
Then, three months later, King Charlie announced that Princess Bella was to be wed to Prince Mike.
Princess Bella was heartbroken. She asked her father why he had chose Prince Mike. King Charlie had told her, "Well, I knew the two of you were friends. I knew that he had also shown interest in you before. I thought you would be the happiest with him."
In this kingdom, it was tradition that if a girl wasn't married by seventeen, if her father wanted to, he could choose a man for her to marry.
Now, it is two months after the wedding announcement. There is only less than a month until the wedding. Princess Bella doesn't know what to do.
That night, after Princess Bella was sure that everyone was asleep, she snuck out of the castle. She snuck past her parents bedroom and down the long staircase. No one ever noticed her leaving.
She reached the front door, and hurried anxiously to the Grand Garden. It seemed that she was always anxious to see Prince Edward lately. More so tonight, because she knew that tomorrow was the dress fitting for the wedding.
She found Prince Edward waiting for her under one of the lamp posts in the Garden. She ran into his arms when she saw him, breathing in his sweet scent.
"I love you," He whispered, kissing the top of her head.
"I love you too," She replied, leaning back to look into his eyes.
They sat hand in hand on the bench together. Princess Bella put her head on Prince Edward's shoulder.
"Oh, Edward. What are we going to do?" Princess Bella murmured.
Prince Edward rubbed her back. "Why don't you sneak away with me?"
Princess Bella sighed. "I wish it was that easy. You know my father would think your father kidnaped me. He would start a war with you guys. That's not what I want."
"No, I suppose not. Maybe you should just tell your father the truth. He only wants what's best for you," Prince Edward suggested.
Princess Bella shook her head. "He'd only get angry. Then I'd never see you again."
Prince Edward cupped her face in his hands. "Couldn't you just try, love?"
Princess Bella sighed and smiled weakly. "Alright. But what will we do if he gets upset?"
"Then we'll have to run away," Edward said, leaning in to kiss her.
"Bella! Bella!" They heard Princess Bella's mother calling.
Princess Bella and Prince Edward pulled apart.
"Run!" Princess Bella whispered.
Prince Edward ran away into the darkness. Princess Bella sat back down on the bench, and tried not to look guilty.
Queen Renee stepped around the corner. "Oh Bella, there you are! You weren't in your bed. I was worried sick! I thought you had been kidnaped!"
Princess Bella smiled at her mothers frantic matter. Queen Renee had always been like that.
Queen Renee and King Charlie had gotten married when they were only eighteen. Princess Bella came along just two years later. The two got along just fine, but it was obvious that Queen Renee didn't love King Charlie anymore. If it was possible to leave her husband, she probably would have.
While King Charlie was still in love with Queen Renee. That made it a little more awkward. Queen Renee just went along with it though.
"I'm fine Mom," Princess Bella told her.
Queen Renee sat down next to her. "What are you doing out here so late anyway?"
"I couldn't sleep," Princess Bella lied.
Queen Renee put her arm around Princess Bella. "Are you worried about the dress fitting tomorrow, honey?"
Princess Bella frowned. "No. I'm worried about the wedding. I don't want to marry Mike. He's my friend, but nothing more."
Queen Renee hugged her closer. "I know. I wish I could help you, but you know how things work around here. There's nothing we can do."
"I know," Princess Bella sighed.
I'll still try to do something though, Princess Bella thought.
"Why don't we go back inside?" Queen Renee suggested, patting Princess Bella's hair.
Princess Bella nodded and followed her mother out of the garden.
I hope you liked it! It may not be that interesting yet, but it gets better. Anyway, tell me what you think! But don't be mean, please! :)
