Before you start reading, click this for ultimate birthday-celebration-feeling:
The reason for the all-around party mood is that today is not just some day, it’s SOUL’S BIRTHDAY!!And because a simple “happy birthday” is not enough (and because she mentioned more than once that she’ll cry us a river if she has to do her bday post all on her own as well, what IS kind of understandable) – dear Soul, enjoy your very own bday post!!
The story of the princess and her dudettes
Once upon a time, there was a princess in a castle. The princess had everything one could wish for, a loving family including her kind of crazy little sister who always makes her smile, good friends on who she can always rely, a cute little doggy and her very own red carriage. The only thing that was missing was a prince.
Pale, noble Mr. Charming - YES!!
One day during twilight, a beautiful pale man rode up the princess’ driveway, on his noble silver steed with an exotic looking banner across its chest consisting of a circle and an arrow. His way of talking, his charme and good looks made the princess lose her mind. She fell in love with him, and couldn’t stand a night without reading at least some of the beautiful words he had written down for her in the little black book of his.
But after a while, an acquaintance of the pale man on the silver steed appeared in the princess’ life – a dark-skinned, muscular young man on a wild horse, bringing the feeling of freedom and adventure up to the princess’ sheltered bedroom.
Dark-skinned, muscular young guy - YES!!
For a long time, she couldn’t decide for one of those man. Should she choose the pale, noble and charming man that had a way with words that made her lose her mind, or the dark-skinned, wild young man with the unbelievable abs who promised her adventures and freedom? It was a time of inner disruption for the young princess.
But as the time went on, something became clear to the princess. It was more of a slow process of understanding than a sudden discovery, but one day she had enough of both, enough of the pale noble man that wrote her words of his love in a book, because she found that he wrote these words to all the girls he knew, and enough of the dark-skinned wild man, because she realized that the feeling of adventure and freedom she had with him would never become real, because he only kept talking about those things, but never in all this time took the princess out to actually be free.
Good looks?? Definitely!!
During that time, the princess fell for several other men, for some because of their good looks, for some because of their charming character, for some because of the shimmering and sparkling goods they could provide, and for some who had all of this. But there always came a time when the princess would find out that it was the same with all those men, one way or the other. There was less to them than meets the eye.
Shimmering, sparkling goods?? Totally!!
One day, when the princess had almost given up on finding her prince, there came a man in her life, that seemed to be brave, and charming, and entertaining, and on top of all good-looking and true. Once more, maybe against better knowing, the princess fell in love. She had a good time with that man, even though maybe the time was short. Because after this short while, as it is with real men, real problems begin to appear in the princess’ life. The brave man she had met had secrets and features that she hadn’t seen at first and that made her life uneasy. But her attraction to this man was still there, and the princess came to know what it felt like to be unhappy in love.
It is not told how the story of the princess in her castle and the brave, good-looking man ends. Did they end up together, despite of the problems they had? Or did they break up and the princess found another man, in a shining armour who showed her the world on his beautiful steed? No one knows, but it is said that the princess was never really unhappy, not even when she was sad about some prince-to-be. Because the story tells us that she had a lavish feast on her next birthday, and there were letters found from her good friends the dudettes, lying in the black book the pale man once gave to her, reminding her of what’s to come and what’s to stay:
Soul, before you my life was like a moonless sky. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ….And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. If you were gone, everything would go black. Nothing would change, but my eyes would be blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there would be no more reason for anything.
