messages - submission nov 26
Once upon a time, there lived in an ordinary sort of apartment building a beautiful princess, disguised as a somewhat pretty young woman. Every morning she would wake up, look in the mirror and say to herself. “Perhaps today is the day.” Then she would get dressed, and head off to work.
Every evening she would come home, make something to eat and watch old movies or read. Every night she would dream of the one who would come for her. He would say gentle loving things to her that would caress her heart. .
Unbeknownst to the beautiful princess, living in the very same building was a handsome prince, disguised as a somewhat good looking but rather ordinary sort of fellow. He was smart, but a little bit quiet. The quiet ones should always be watched as they tend to have a bit of mischief in them.
The prince lived in the apartment above the princess and often they would ride the elevator down to the parking garage together. After a little while they got to know each other a bit and soon they were spending an evening here or there in the other’s apartment where they would split a pizza, watch a movie, or play a game. He was a bit of a tease and she liked the comfortable way she felt when she was around him. Oftentimes after being together she would lie in her bed and replay bits of things he had said and it would warm her heart.
One morning, when the elevator stopped on her floor and the doors opened, he said, “I know you.”
“Oh yes,” he replied. “I danced with you once upon a dream.” After that is was just a matter of time and they lived happily ever after
