I do not own any of the characters all credit goes to Mattel.

Rosella looked at the beautiful setting sun outside her window. It reminded her of the sky she had been looking at before that terrible storm. It reminded her of her father and the last time she had seen him on the boat. She had been able to recollect more of her memories (with the help of her mother). Her mother and even her two brothers (James and Christopher) had been telling her stories about her past. They had shared many laughs remembering the fun times they all had shared together as a family. They had told stories about summers and holidays they had talked about their fun-filled harvest festivals they had each year, but out of all those stories Rosella listened to the ones about her father the most. Through the stories she learned that her father was a beloved king who had a heart of gold. The king had always loved to travel and had often brought Rosella, James, and Christopher along with him. All these memories of the past could be the present if he was here. Rosella missed him terribly even more than her brothers, Rosella and her father were very close when he was alive.

She heard a knock on her door, "Come in." She said softly. The door opened and Antonio walked in.

"Hi Rosella um... are you okay." He asked choosing his words wisely. Rosella looked at him, concern was written all over his face.

Ro smiled, "Of course I'm alright why wouldn't I be." A hint of amusement in her voice.

"Well you've been in here for the last two hours." He said, coming over and sitting by her.

"It's alright really Antonio you don't have to worry about me." Rosella tried to reasure him. It didn't work very well.

"You are a terrible liar." Antonio commented smiling, while putting his hand on hers.

"It's just that..." She started, putting her head on his shoulder, "I don't know." Antonio put an arm around her waist and started to stroke her long blonde hair.

"Well you must know something about it if it bothers you so much."

"Well... I just wish father was here, I miss him... not that I'm not happy living here with you, it's just that..."

"I know, you and your father were close, and willl always be in your heart." He said in a comforting voice. Rosella smiled up at him as she slightly lifted her head from his shoulder, but Antonio could see she wasn't fully over it. Even if he was her childhood best friend and now husband he couldn't help her through this. Only her family could, her family and the stories they share.

"Hey your mother, and brothers are coming tomorrow you should be happy now smile brightly." He told her. Rosella smiled happily she loved these weekly visits her mother and her take turns going tothe others country they had also found a quicker route for them to get to other's country. With that happy thought in mind Rosella went to bad it was after all ten o'clock already and she needed to save her energy for tomorrow.

Well that's my first chapter of this story, and trust me things are about to get interesting.
