only the lonliest princess lived in the castle. wandering, from room to room.... but alas, no one else lived there.
sometimes, she thought she saw someone in the garden
...but convinced herself it was the wind... and stayed indoors.
only the the lonliesst gardener boy was left, to tend the gardens, overgrown, as they were.
sometimes, he thought he saw some one in the windows of the castle
...but he could never be sure... so he stayed outdoors
so the days passed.... and the lonliest people in the world lived, unknowingly, within reach of each other.
and where was the fairy-godmother...
...the one, who was meant to put these lonely souls together....
she had gone to barbados on holiday.... been hit by a falling coconut... gotten amnesia and was now making a living as waitress ...and wondering why her back was itchy all the. time... from where her wings had retracted....
the moral..... life does not always have a happy ending, stuff gets in the way... or ...don't wait for someone else to create your happiness. step outside your comfort zone and find it yourself.
