There was once an evil wizard who had imprisoned a beautiful
princess. The wizard's castle was in a deep forest, which every one
feared to go in. The Castle would disappear by noon but appear by night
when the forest was even scarier. Well, a young handsome prince was
very eager to marry the beautiful princess and so he set out in search
of her. His sister also accompanied him. On the way they heard someone
crying. They stopped and saw a very pretty girl sitting there. What's
the matter my princess, said the prince. Oh! That nasty wizard has stolen
a glass slipper of mine and if I don't get it back in another10 days
I will have to marry him. Come with us and we will help you, said the
prince whose name was Ziyan. OK, said the girl but she stumbled back.
The forest is dark and spooky, said she. Well, we will go then, said
the prince but the girl came and said, "I am coming with you."
