Life in the hereafter as been pretty sweet for Snow and Prince.
There is always something amusing to do (like a little ghostly romance, pranks in fountains, breaking up palace plumbing
or inhabiting a hat lamp) …
Prince has decided to propose to Snow again .. after all in their original pledge to one another it was til death do us part .. and well they DID die. So technically they are not married. Prince does not wish to live in eternity without Snow as his bride.
Lately Prince has been hearing rumors circulating among the spectral community. Rumors about an enchanted garden that is said to exist in some forgotten woodland. Some where right here in Windenburg. Many ethereal beings have come up missing and it is whispered that they have returned to their life of flesh and breath. Prince has hopes that he and Snow can return to life among the living as well.
One night, while out haunting a new forest, he stumbled upon a mysterious well. As he approached it seemed to be drawing him in .. he could almost hear it beckon to him .. urging him to “make a wish .. come make a wish!” He wondered could this be the place the rumors had suggested? Is it truly enchanted? He thought to give it a try (it couldn’t hurt right?) so snagging a coin from a nearby fountain .. he tossed it in and made a wish. It did not turn out so well .. there was a thunderous roar and thick black smoke poured out at him. It felt as tho pure evil surrounded him.
Were he not already dead he might have been scared to death. He walked away quickly. Thankfully there were no lasting effects from the frightening encounter ..
can’t say the same for the beans they had for dinner that night 🙂
Prince told Snow of his encounter with the fiend in the well. Her blood boiled with anger at the recounted ill treatment of her beloved. She was determined to get the rude beast that lived in the well to grant her a more positive result in their wishes. She understood enchantment a bit better than Prince so she started with a nice bribe .. uhhh offering. Even tho she was happy with her Prince in the land of the living or dead she knew he desired to return. She knew his people needed his kind wisdom .. he was a benevolent ruler and she would go any where with him .. yes .. even back to life. She cast her coins into the well as she wished she and Prince could have their life of flesh and blood back.
She stood with clenched eyes and held her breath as she waited upon the thunderous roar and black smoke to belch out of the dark chasm. Her eyes tho tightly shut perceived a bright light and she felt a lovely sensation of warmth all around. The voice from the well told her he had gifted her 3 things a death flower .. an angel fish and a recipe. She would have to study hard to be able to execute the recipe but when properly prepared and consumed it would grant her wish. Snow hurried away to begin her studies. Although she was a very good cook she knew this one would take a bit of time to learn.
Success .. she has learned the mysterious recipe! She prepared a perfect portion for each of them. Snow happily kept it a secret so that she could surprise her cherished man. She invited Prince to a midnight picnic and there she offered him some “special dessert.” He took it and ate … right before her eyes he transformed into a mortal version of her beloved!
She beamed at the beautiful sight before her. How beautiful her was! Prince sensed hesitation in her and he leaned in and whispered to her that he could not do this life without her and urged her to take the magical dessert. Quickly she ate.
As the first bite slid onto her tongue … her whole being tingled … a strange energy imbued her that she was lifted from the ground … bright light shot thru her being and in an instant she was transformed. They gazed in amazement at each other .. what a crazy adventure! They get ANOTHER CHANCE!
After a few day Snow begins to wonder .. what if ??? what if ??? So off she slipped to the benevolent well again. This time dropping in a SIGNIFICANT offering in first she wished for youth .. youth for herself and especially for her beloved Prince! Did it work???
Well see for yourself …
anyone ready for a wedding?
