The princess kinght

Once upon a time there was a king and queen who lived in a good kingdom. All the people were happy. But then one day an evil monster kidnapped their son the prince. Now everyone was sad. The king and queen asked a great wizard to help them, but he was scared and he flew away on his pet dragon.

Then one day a beautiful and strong princess came to the land. She heard the sad story about the prince. She said she would save him. When she was riding over a hill she met a big giant, who told her she had to give him all her money. She just laughed and when the giant tried to hit her she used her sword and shield to fight him. After two hours the giant was tired and told the princess that she was the winner.

Later when the princess was riding through a forest she saw an elf who told her that the evil monster lived on an island in the sea. The princess didn’t know what to do, because she didn’t have a boat. She shouted that she would not give up, that she promised to save the prince.

A mermaid swimming in the sea heard the princess’ brave words and she told the princess that she would take her to the island. When they got to the island the princess said “Thank you!” and ran to the castle. But the monster saw her coming and shot at her with his bow and arrow. However, a fairy that also lived on the island used her magic wand and none of the arrows could hit the princess. When the monster had no more arrows the princess walked up and hit it in the nose. The monster started to cry and ran away.

When the princess found the prince in the castle’s dungeon he was so happy to see her. He told her she was so beautiful and strong and he asked her to marry him and be his queen. She said “Thank you but I don’t want to be a queen, I want to be knight and help all the good people in the world.”

Even today people talk about the princess knight who gave up a kingdom to help the world.
