True Princess

I do not publicly declare myself to be a true princess. I simply feel everything, which requires a true and courageous heart.

I know how low-spirited the prince has become. He has been desperately searching for someone who is in fact very close to home.

I must make myself known on this wild, stormy night. I will go to the palace and knock on the gate. I am quite sure that I will not be recognized, but I must go anyway. It is not a good time, but it is time.
