"The view from this tall tree is kind of pretty. I can see salmon jumping on the river. Colorful birds are making their nests while they sing. The sky is clear this morning after a night of heavy rain. My name is Emma and I am a 16 year old orphan with long brown hair that I braid every other day. My eyes are hazel like my mom's. My blue maiden dress is the only one I own. I am in charge of four siblings. Our parents died trying to protect us from a dragon attack and were killed instantly by the monster's lethal fire.
"I was not successful at hunting last night because I could not see anything with the rain. My bow and arrows seemed to be drying faster than I was. I decided to go check a village and hopefully someone would feel sorry for me and feed me. While entering the village a group of people was gathering around a sign that was being posted by a royal knight. His expensive uniform gave him away.
"Young princess Victoria has been abducted by Amira the dark magic sorcerer. The King is offering 100 gold coins to anyone who rescues her. The reward was more than enough to feed my siblings for a long time. Will Princess Victoria's handsome teen brother Prince Edward interfere? Or are the two of us destined to fall in love during the rescue?"
