THE AILING QUEEN

Once upon a time there lived a beautiful Queen. Her beauty shined from the inside out. She was very kind to the royal staff and her subjects throughout the land. Everyone in the kingdom loved and respected her very much. But as the years went by the whole kingdom was very sad. The Queen was up in age and her dear hus- band the King died many moons ago. And the royal couple had no children and immediate heir to the throne.She had a nephew prince Jacob but he was heartless and very mean. Everyone knew the kingdom wouldn't be in good shape if he became King. One week before christmas her royal highness summoned her chief advisor . "Yes your highness. What is it?" "Have a seat Oliver. You know I haven't got many years left. I have a secret, when I was a young princess in the prime of my life. I fell madly in love with a commoner. One thing lead to another and I became with child. My father the king was livid. All he could think of at the time was his reputation. He didn't want me to bring shame to the royal family." "Your grace. What is that you want me to do?" "I can't let that evil nephew of mines become King. He has no heart and the kingdom will be ruined. When I left the home for unwed mothers in New York, all I was told was I had a son. Oliver I know it's a tall order, but please find my son." To Be Continued 12-24-16 Alexis Y.
