1. Prologue



Holly's P.O.V

"Mommy!" I heard my six years old daughter, Lucy shouted. She came running in with her four years old brother, George following.

"What is it, Lucy?" I asked, grabbing her and putting her on one leg. I grabbed George and put him on the other. 

"George keeps ruining my tea party with my dollies! Tell him to stop!" she complained. I chuckled. She crossed her arms over her chest and pouted. "Stop laughing at me. I'm serious," she added.

"Okay! Okay! I will stop!" I said putting my hands up in defeat. I looked over to the clock. "It looks like it's about yours and George's bedtime. How about a story?" I asked. 

"Really! Okay! I'll go get ready!" Lucy chirped as she jumped up and ran to her room. I got up with George still in my arms and walked to his room to get him ready for bed. In our house, we have a small room with shelves of books on them. There's one giant fluffy bean bag in the center. That is where I read to my two crazy children. I walked into the 'library' room with George. Lucy was already there.

"Hurry, mommy!" she said excitedly. I chuckled and nestled down next to her. 

"What do you guys want to hear?" I asked.

"Cinderella!" Lucy suggested. 

"No! That's too girly," George pipped in. 

"How about I tell you a modern princess story. No fairies. Just real people getting their own happy ending," I offered.

"Is there any fighting?" George asked.

"There could be," I said. 

"Okay! Tell us a modern princess story, mommy!" Lucy squealed as she cuddled more into my side.

"Once upon-"

"Wait!" George interrupted. 

"What?" I asked.

"Don't start off with 'once upon of time'. I thought this was a modern princess story?" George asked.

"You're right. Then how should I start it?" I asked.

"With 'it all began'," he suggested. I giggled.

"Okay!" I said. "It all began..."

Hello, everyone! Welcome to book one of my new series. Hope you enjoy it as much as I will! 

First thing first! Likes, comments, and favorites are always welcomed! ;)

Next, I want to say that I got this idea from a story I read a loooooooong time ago and I forgot who wrote it but if I knew I would give them credit. But just so you know this is not fully my idea. I just had this idea from that story I read for a long time and never got around to actually writing it until now. 

FYI, I named the little boy after the little boy in IT even though I won't be watching it. But the only difference is the age and I call him George and not Georgie. Just thought to add this in here XD

Okay! I'm done!

For real!

Here I go!

Leaving so you guys can like, comment, and favorite. :)

I'm not just writing because I want to add more to the word count and also because I might have something else to say and don't know it until I publish this.....

Okay! I'm ACTUALLY done!


Love you! 


P.s I'm sorry for that long author's note. It won't be like that all the time....

P.s.s I did think about something. I need to tell you guys that I wanted to put a narrator because she is important to the series. The first chapter will start with Ella's POV but being told by Holly if that makes sense.
