Once upon a time, there was a girl named Aza. She had been left at the doorstep of an innkeeper and his wife.
Aza lived in the kingdom of Ayortha. In the kingdom of Ayortha, two things are highly valued. Beauty and singing ability. As Aza grew older,she became uglier and uglier. But she had the most beautiful singing voice in all the land.
La, La, La
One day, a guest at Aza's inn, the Duchess of Olixo, asks Aza to accompany her to the royal wedding. Aza is very surprised.
M-me? B-but that's preposterous!
Aza, I would like you to come with me to the royal wedding.
Nonsense. You will come with me.
Whoa! This is so cool!
So Aza and the Duchess arrive at the castle for the royal wedding. Aza is amazed at the beauty of the castle. She is nervous of what everyone will think when they see her, but she is also excited for the wedding.
Yes, yes. Let us proceed, shall we?
Soon enough, Aza was staying in the castle with the new queen and the king and the prince, Ijori. She quickly became friends with the queen and became her Lady-in-waiting.
One day, Queen Ivi finds out that Aza can illuse. Illusing is being able to sing without moving your lips. Aza can also imitate other voices and sounds. Ivi asks Aza to iluse for her becuase she cannot sing. Aza refuses at first but then the queen threatens to send her to prison and close down the inn. Aza is horrified but has to agree.
Yes my queen.
Oh no! I couldn't!
You will illuse for me or I'll throw you in prison and close down your little inn!
