This is the recreation of my other Tudors story based off of Sleeping Beauty which was done about a year ago. I quit writing it because I ran out of ideas and decided to delete it. Now have I decided to rewrite it again. I hope that this time I will be more successful and not get plagued with writers block again.
Disclaimer nothing is mine
Once upon a time in the small kingdom of England there lived a king named Thomas Boleyn and his queen named Elizabeth Howard-Boleyn. The couple had everything they could ever want but one thing they didn't have was a child of their own. For years they wanted to have to have child but they were unsuccessful. One day a daughter was born they named her Anne. The King and Queen invited everyone to celebrate their happiness.
"I thank everyone here who has come to help share my happiness" said King Thomas smiling to everyone in the throne and giving a bigger smile to his wife Elizabeth
The next guests to pay homage to Princess Anne were King Henry VII and Queen Elizabeth of York who also ruled a small kingdom in England. With them they brought their son and future heir Prince Henry. One day when Anne was older she and Henry would marry and unify both their kingdoms as one.
King Henry told his son "Harry one day this beautiful child will be your beautiful bride."
Little Prince Henry just stood there looking down at Princess Anne hardly believing that this tiny baby would one day be his bride.
"The Three Good Fairies" announced the herald.
The Three Good Fairies then entered the room. They were Mistress Katherine Parr, Mistress Jane Seymour, and Mistress Mary Stafford. They had come because they each wanted to bestow a gift for the princess.
"Your Majesties all three of us shall grant a small gift for the Princess Anne" Katherine told them.
"What kind of a gift" asked King Thomas?
"Don't worry your majesty it's a gift each of us shall give her for her personalty" answered Jane
"It's harmless" replied Mary.
"Then you may continue on what you are about to do" Queen Elizabeth told them.
Mistress Katherine was the first to grant her gift for Princess Anne. Katherine's gift would be the gift of kindness.
"My dear princess you shall be blessed with the gift of showing kindness to all who know you" Katherine told her as she waved her magic wand fulfilling the spell.
Next up was Mistress Jane to grant her gift to the princess. Jane's gift would be the of beauty.
"Fair princess while you shall show kindness to your people you shall also be able to charm them with your beauty" Jane said to her.
Mary started to say her wish "Sweet princess my gift shall be..." unable to say more because her voice was blocked out.
Out of thin air appeared Margaret Beaufort the evil sorceress and estranged mother of King Henry VII. She was a women who turned to the dark arts after her son wouldn't share power with her. She was later banished to the forbidden forest along the English border.
"What is she doing here" asked Mary?
"Hush" Katherine whispered to her.
"Such a splendid occasion isn't it. I was quite distressed when I didn't get invited. But I was even more distressed when I found out that my darling son was invited" said Margaret said as she glared over at her son.
"Mother you should leave" Henry told his mother.
"Yes you should leave because nobody wants you here" said Elizabeth of York in a confident tone of voice.
"Not wanted. Great way to break a dear old woman's heart" Margaret said faking sadness in her voice.
"We are very sorry that we didn't invite you" King Thomas.
"I can forgive you for that your majesty. You at least say your sorry where as my son banishes me after all those years I spent fighting for his place on the throne" Margaret said glaring back at Henry again.
"Mother stop this and tell us why you are really here" scolded Henry
"You see I have come to grant a gift for the young princess. Which I will do right now. Listen well all of you. The princess shall grow up kind and beautiful and loved by all. But before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die!" Margaret exclaimed as she fulfilled the evil curse.
"OH NO" exclaimed Queen Elizabeth as she ran up and picked up Princess Anne!
"Seize that women!" Ordered King Thomas
"Stand back you fools" Margaret said as she disappeared.
Margaret had disappeared as quickly as she had came. King Thomas and Queen Elizabeth were distressed about the evil curse that had been placed on their only child. Katherine then broke the silence by speaking.
"I believe Mary has a way that will be able fix this problem" Katherine said.
"You mean she can undo this curse" King Thomas asked
"Oh no our magic doesn't work that way but she can do something else" Jane told him
"But I don't think I know how to do it" Mary told her.
"Try dear" Katherine told her.
Mary was not the type who knew spells that well. She then remembered how both the King and Queen were feeling. So she came up with a spell.
"Sweet Princess if you shall prick your finger on the spindle on a spinning wheel you will not die but sleep and be awaken by true loves kiss" Mary said as she casted the spell.
King Thomas was still fearful for his daughters life that he ordered every spinning wheel in the kingdom to be burned. Katherine came up with the idea of taking Princess Anne into the woods to their cottage to keep her safe from Margaret for the next sixteen years. She, Jane and Mary would live as mortals for next sixteen years.
Over the next sixteen years were filled with sadness for King Thomas and his people. When the sixteenth year came he and his people rejoiced.
