Once upon a time , there lived a king and Queen. Their names were King Lance and Queen Roseanne. The young royals were kind, generous, loved by their people and their kingdom(Estaline) was thriving. Despite all of this they were not content.
Three Months Earlier
The royal doctor had told them that the queen would not be able to bear a child. The new made the couple very sad. Even though the news was months ago, Queen Roseanne still showed signs of great sadness. King Lance and Queen Roseanne could not understand why God would do this but each day they prayed.
One night the king and queen were at their country home in Estaline. They were having dinner with Lady Cloette and Sir Marco, a rich and popular political family. Lady Cloette had just had a baby girl but she had decided to leave her at home so that she wouldn’t “disturb her.” Lady Cloette was not queen Rosanne’s cup of tea. She was loud and cared mostly about riches,clothes, beauty and herself. On the other hand, Queen Rosanne loved Sir Marco like an older brother. He was a jaunty, kind and softly spoken fellow who loved literature and fun arguments.
After dinner was cleared and the servants had been dismissed to go enjoy themselves, the two couples sat in the parlor idly talking. Interrupting the conversation, was a loud knock on the front door.
KNOCK KNOCK !
Since the guards had also been sent to enjoy themselves,the queen got up to answer the door. She was quickly followed by her husband and their two guests. When she opened the door the queen was surprised to see that no one was there.
