Diary Entry for Jack and the Beanstalk
Here I am once again just gazing into the starry sky and penning down mythoughts. Not much has happened today, just hearing mum·s complaints all daylong. I took a stroll to the marketplace and lately there has been a lot of talkgoing around about ´knights in shining armourµ going around saving princessesfrom mighty dragons and enormous giants. I mean seriously what rubbish isthat? I look all around me and all I see is people that look exactly like me.There·s no such thing as men that are ten foot tell and enormous birds thatbreathe out scorching flames! Gosh! The ridiculous stories that people gossipabout these days. Well I·m sure there·s one thing that·s certain, I·m sure theprincesses are real alright!
Oh boy I·m sure they·re real beauties. I can spendthe whole day dreaming about how my dream princess would look like. Soft Silkyhair, skin as fine as snow and I·m sure the lime light will always be on her nomatter where she goes. The star of attraction!

Mum and Iowe our lives to her. It·s her milk that keeps us going and gives us food on ourtable. I hope mum doesn·t sell her of something. That would be awfully dreadful
Sometimes I wish I could just go on an adventure and come back with LOTSAND LOTS of wealth. Wouldn·t that be perfect? I would be the wealthiest manand princess would flock to be in my presence. Perhaps some might even ask formy hand in marriage? Boy would that be a dream come true! But the best thingwould be that Mum would be happy. She wouldn·t have to worry about moneymatters anymore. Her happiness is worth anything to me.
I can almost feel it. Like there·s something out there waiting to happen. I canalmost see it dancing among the stars. And when it does, it·ll be up to me to
