MFtS-The Secret Castle

“Few knew about the castle hidden inside the island,” said our tour guide as we were getting off the boat at the island castle.

As we were walking through the castle, we heard a noise. It wasn't loud but loud enough for us to hear. Our tour guide pretended he didn't hear anything but it bothered the entire group as we were suppose to be the only people in this mysterious castle.

About the same time that a few of us were going to sneak away to locate the noise, a small kitten came walking up to us, wrapping its body around our legs and purring.

Jenny picked up the kitten and decided she would take her home and adopt her. She named her, Princess. She didn't know that she really was a princess. Her great great grandmother had been turned into a cat by the resident magician, at the request of her husband, King William the Terrible.

  1. These were the words which came into my mind

    A soft, pure and innocent piece of writing πŸ™‚
    I agree with J.A Prentice. I love this fairy tale and really wanted to know more πŸ™‚

  2. King William the Terrible… it’s super funny! Like the others, I would also like to know what happened to the Princess next. Love it! πŸ™‚

  3. Great interpretation! Loved it. That photo is of Vikingsholm Castle in Emerald Bay in South Lake Tahoe, California. The home is on the mainland, but they built a little “play castle” for the children on the little island.

  4. Now Jenny owns a true princess. I was thinking that probably all female and male cats think of themselves as princesses and princes. They certainly act as though they do. Good story, Joy. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne
