Princess Brooklynn and the Last Unicorn
By: Bellise Marianna-EG
Once upon a time, in a magical kingdom far, far, away, there lived a girl named, Cinderella. Cinderella was a servant girl for her evil stepmother. Cinderella dreamed of daring quests and exploring the world beyond her village.
One night, Cinderella decided to run away from her stepmother and stepsisters. She couldn’t handle them. Cinderella hopped out the window (Cinderella was 12 at this time) and ran through the valley. That night, she came across a beautiful forest called “The Forbidden Forests”. Cinderella explored through the forest and came to a beautiful meadow filled with unicorns. This meadow was hidden behind the trees and flowers. She explored throughout the meadow and learned that each unicorn lived in a special season. The unicorns of Autumn brought Autumn to the human world, Summer unicorns brought summer to the human world, Spring unicorns brought Spring to the human world, and Winter unicorns brought Winter and snow to the human world. Each unicorn had a special marking in it’s hair that identified which clan it was in. Autumn unicorns had red, orange, and yellow in their hair. Summer unicorns had yellow in their hair. Spring unicorns had pink, purple, and yellow in their hair. Winter unicorns had sparkly silver and baby blue in their hair. Their bodies were specially marked, too. Autumn unicorns were bay. Spring unicorns were gold. Summer unicorns were spotted (Dapple grays). Winter unicorns were sparkly silver, like their hair.
Cinderella was amazed by this. She met a unicorn that was born that day. She was the only black, sparkly winter unicorn in the meadow. It was very unique to Cinderella. She called her Silhouette. Cinderella decided to visit her unicorn every night. But, when she fell asleep while doing her chores, her stepmother knew something was up. She followed Cinderella to the meadow and caught her. When they arrived home, she strapped Cinderella to a chair and used magic to take the memories away from her. That way she would never, ever leave her stepmother’s sight again.
Many years later, Cinderella had a daughter of her own. She was just as curious as her mother. She possessed a power that allowed her to turn anything into glass. The young princess’s name was Brooklynn. She loved unicorns just as much as her mother did and because she did, her mother gave her unicorn earrings with opals running through the center. Her mother bought her those earrings because the opal in the center connected Brooklynn to the unicorn world. Cinderella never remembered her adventure finding the unicorn world. It took someone very special to help her remember. Someone named...Brooklynn.
16 years later…
Brooklynn woke up to the sun shining in her room. She raised herself out of her bed and stretched her arms and rubbed her eyes. She got out of her bed and put her slippers on. Her hair full of bird’s nests and it was puffed up really high. Her sister, Claire, had just woken up, too. She waited at Brooklynn’s door.
“Hey Brooke!! How’s your morning?” Claire smiled.
“I just woke up. I can’t tell you how my morning was until I actually live it,” Brooklynn said. Brooklynn and Claire walked downstairs.
Brooklynn walked out to her stables and Claire followed. Brooklynn got her horse brushes and brushed her dapple grey horse. She stopped and looked at the sunset. Claire walked up to her pony and brushed it’s long golden mane.
“Claire, have you ever wondered if somewhere out there, there is a unicorn?” Brooklynn wondered.
“Not really. Do you?” Claire returned.
“I do. I just love them so much. Somehow, I feel like...like I’m connected to them,” Brooklynn said as her mother walked outside.
“Good morning, girls! It looks like you two are working very hard. I’d say you two should come in for breakfast,” their mother smiled.
The girls walked in with their mother for breakfast.
Brooklynn and Claire sat down at the table. Their mother served them large pancakes suited for a princess.
“I have an announcement to make! We’re going to have royal winter celebration, tomorrow night!!” Cinderella happily announced.
The girls’ ears perked up. They ran up to their room and looked for shoes and dresses. As soon as they found their perfect outfit, they rushed to show each other. Claire chose some black flats and a dark blue dress with sparkles and puffy sleeves. Brooklynn chose her tea dress. Her tea dress was baby blue and puffy. It included some blue metallic shoes and her favorite gold unicorn necklace.
“I’m so excited for the ball. We’re going to dance, eat fancy food, and dance,” Claire smiled as she held her gown up to herself.
“I am, too,” Brooklynn added.
The next day, Brooklynn rose early and prepared herself for the ball. Everyone in the palace was bustling with joy.
The night of the ball came and Brooklynn was all prepared. The princess walked out and everyone clapped. Brooklynn smiled and bowed.
“This is so cool!” Claire smiled.
“I know. I cannot stop thinking about it. The only thing is I don’t want it to turn into last year’s ball,” Brooklynn said as she remembered the moment. Brooklynn was at a ball and was super bored. She saw someone sneeze. ‘Are sneezes contagious?’ she asked herself. Apparently for her. Brooklynn tried to hold her sneeze in but, it burst out. Brooklynn fell to the floor and turned the whole floor to glass. Just then, a turkey fell on her face. Where did that come from?? She was so embarrassed.
“Don’t worry! That won’t happen again. I think you were just having a bad day. Well, today is a new day for a ball and just brush that moment off,” Claire said to cheer up her sixteen year-old sister.
“For a nine year-old girl, you’re pretty wise,” Brooklynn said.
“I know,” Claire smiled.
Brooklynn walked over to the snack table and saw her friend, Isabella, there (daughter of Elsa).
“Brooke, this party is great. My mom has never enjoyed it more. Oh...thanks for putting her in charge of making the snow. She loves it,” Isabella winked.
“No problem. I was super excited that my mom said that we were having a ball. More shoes for me!!” Brooklynn smiled.
“OOOooooo...they’re lighting the cake. I need to dig in. See you!” Isabella said as she ran to the cake.
Brooklynn waved and walked by a duke. He stepped on her dress and she tripped. She landed on top of the snack table and turned everything into glass!!! Brooklynn got up off the table and ran towards the door. She got on her horse and ran off. She came into ‘The Forbidden Forest’ and kept running. She finally stopped and walked into the trees and flowers. Brooklynn couldn’t believe her eyes! It was whole meadow full of unicorns!! Her dream. Brooklynn walked slowly to the meadow and unicorns ran all around her. Brooklynn smiled. The opals in the middle of her unicorn earrings started to glow. Brooklynn wandered throughout the unicorn meadow. She wandered into all seasons. The one she didn’t want to leave was the winter season. There she met a black unicorn with it’s sparkly grey foal. The black unicorn had a tag on it’s neck that was a little faded. It said Silhouette. Brooklynn marveled over the tag. The handwriting looked just like her mother’s. Her mother would never come in contact with a unicorn. She hardly believes in them. It couldn’t possibly be her. Brooklynn loved the little grey unicorn. She named it, Swift because it was the fastest pony ever! Brooklynn left the meadow happily. What she didn’t know was that she wasn’t alone. She was being watched.
The End, for now!!!
