The Story Begins is a short prologue and synopsis of the events of the introduction leading up to the events of KQ7.
The Story BeginsEdit
Valanice, queen of Daventry and mother of Princess Rosella, is attempting (not for the first time, we assume) to talk her daughter into marriage with some prince or another. Rosella's friends are all doing so, Valanice reasons, and Rosella is almost 20 years old, so it's about time that she begins settling down. Perhaps Valanice is anxious to become a grandmother.
Rosella is not too pleases with the idea, preferring to run away from the everyday life of being a beautiful princess, have adventures, and visit fairy tale castles in the sky. She sings of her dreams as her mother drones on, then dives into a looking-pond to follow a tiny dragonet that suddenly appeared, as if from those very dreams.
Valanice hears the splash and sees Rosella disappear under the water. Stopping but to pick up Rosella's comb, the queen jumps in to rescue her daughter. Just as their hands are about to touch, a mysterious arm appears, snatches the princess' arm, and Valanice's -- along with Rosella.
