Once upon a time in a far away land, the Prince of Westland courted a fair maiden. It was not long until the two were in love and together had a beautiful baby girl whom they named Princess Rachel. As time drew on the maiden and prince were no longer happy together, they just knew that it wasn’t meant to be forever. After many sleepless nights and heartfelt thoughts they decided to go apart. But agreed to both take care of Princess Rachel.
Years went by and baby Rachel turned into a curly haired, little Princess in the making. One day Rachel was playing in the grass of her beautiful backyard and her mother told her that there was someone that she wanted Rachel to meet. Rachel went skipping up to her mother, only to find her with a lad that wasn’t her father. :O
“I would like you to meet Sir Lawrence of Bloomfield, Rachel.” said her mother. Princess Rachel quickly ran inside as she was not happy to meet this sir that was now courting her mother. She heard many stories of evil stepfathers with intentions no good and this was something she understood. But it was no use to express her feelings, her mother had already fallen in love with Sir Lawrence.
“What to do?” pondered little Rachel, “I have already a father, I need not another!” Just in the moment her fairy godmother arrived, she must have been near by. “He does not wish to replace your father,” said her fairy godmother, “he knows there is no use to bother.” Little Rachel still did not understand, she was a mere child and an evil stepfather wasn’t in the plan. Her fairy godmother told her not to fret, Sir Lawrence was there to make her mother happy, and that was that.
Many years went by and Princess Rachel and Sir Lawrence grew very close, she knows he is there when she needs him the most.
Today Sir Lawrence celebrates his birthday and Princess Rachel just wanted to say…
Thank you for being there, when you didn’t have to bother,
through thick and thin I will always love my evil stepfather.
