A/N: In case you missed it in the summary, this story will be told in chapters of 200 words or less. Chapters will be SHORT. On purpose.
That said, this is a story I've wanted to write for a long time and finally found the inspiration to do so! I've always loved the story of Bara-hime.
This is my version of it. Hope you like it! :)

DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the characters of Sainunkoku Monogatari aka Colourcloud Palace. All credit goes to the writer Sai Yukino! Hats-off! ^_^

The Rose Princess

Her dark tresses flowed in waves around her beautiful pear-shaped face. Enigmatic, deep-set eyes bordered her aristocratic nose and plum-red lips which stood out in the clear complexion of her face. Her beauty, none could match and her kindness, none could mar.

With a touch of her hand, she had the power to heal anything. Legends were told of her and her reputation far preceded her in lands unknown to her. Many suitors came from far and wide, seeking her favor and hoping to win her hand.

However, few survived the wrath of her family long enough to catch a glimpse of her. She was, after all, the precious jewel of the Hyo clan; the rose princess.

A/N: Please review! :)
