There once lived a girl named Alice who thought she was the luckiest girl in the world.

She was to be the bride of the most handsome prince in all of the land, Andrew. Andrew was

looked at by all the ladies because of all his handsome features. He had eyes like the ocean and

beautiful brown locks of hair. The day before they were supposed to wed Andrew bestowed upon

Alice three items. The first was a glistening white pearl necklace from the deepest depths of the

ocean. The next item was a wedding gown fit for a princess. The last item Alice received was a

bejeweled tiara. Alice was ecstatic at all of the beautiful items Andrew had provided for her to

wear at the wedding. Before Alice and Andrew parted for the evening, Andrew had a warning for

Alice. He said, whatever you do, you mustnt try on the outfit prior to the ceremony, you must

only put it on one hour prior to the wedding or there will be dire consequences. Alice had every

intention to listen to Andrew; with that into consideration Alice parted for the evening. As soon

as she arrived at her estate, she ran up to her chamber and had her ladys maid hang up the gown

and sit the necklace and the tiara next to it. As Alice prepared for her beauty rest, she couldnt

help but to longingly stare at the gown and its accessories.

Alice began to think to herself, He wouldnt know if I just put the ensemble on for a few

moments. Alice rose from her bed and walked over to where the gown was hanging. She stared

at it for a few moments and decided she must try part of it on. First, Alice put the pearls around

her neck. As Alice stared at her reflection she thought it was so beautiful that she just had to see

it with the dress. Secondly, she slid the dress over her and had her maid adjust the corset around

her waist. Once again, she looked into the mirror and decided it wouldnt be complete without

the tiara. As she placed the tiara over her head, she felt a sharp pain in her side. Alice felt as if a

million thorns are poking into her. She yelled for her maid to help her remove the dress; as her

maid ran to help, Alice began to choke. Her ladys maid ran screaming for help from the
chamber. When she arrived back to the chamber with Alices mother and father, it was already

too late. Alice was lying on the floor, blood staining the beautiful white dress. Her face was

flushed a shade of purple and her fingers were clenched tightly around the necklace that

appeared to have choked her to death.

Although Alice thought, Oh hell never know, she would come to find out that when

you are engaged to marry a prince with magical powers, they always have a way of finding out.

The search for the perfect bride for Andrew resumes.
