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."
