once upon a time long ago an ancient kingdom was ruled by king Ross Morgan and queen Samantha Morgan.

they were blessed with a child a son named Ethan who was the young prince and who would one day rule the kingdom as the next king in line for the throne.

they were a happy family and the king was a great ruler who helped all of the people in need until one day something tragic happened.

king Ross was getting sick from a dangerous illness so with his last dying breath he took his wife's hand kissing it and hugged his son tearfully as he died peacefully in his sleep.

a funeral was held in remembrance for the beloved king as Samantha and Ethan stood outside from the castle in the nearby graveyard and looked at the gravestone in sadness.

Mrs Morgan turned to her son and smiled don't worry sweetheart your father is in a better place now he will be ok she told him reassuringly.

Ethan feeling speechless and in shock from grief just nodded his head as tears ran down his face.

the citizens and the queen eventually left the graveyard and went back inside the castle leaving the Prince alone in mourning.

years passed and Ethan grew into a fine fearless and spirited handsome young man his mother who was still loving to him became quite stern with him trying to convince him to follow the tasks and dutys as the future king but all the prince wanted to do was go riding on his horse and explore beyond the castle grounds.

one early morning Ethan was walking into the castle's main dining room to eat his breakfast and saw that his mother was already sitting at the table eating her meal and once she was finished she looked at her son smiling brightly.

hello dear how was your morning out riding your horse? Mrs Morgan asked.

it was great mother now is something troubling you because you look worried Ethan replied.

oh yes sweetie before you came in one of our servants handed me a note and it's been confirmed that the people and citizens of our kingdom are at war with each other so in order to restore peace someone must journey beyond the kingdom and find the last mythical creature known as a dragon mrs Morgan explained.

well mom this seems like a big and daring task and since you've always wanted me to step up to be the next king of our kingdom i think this is the perfect job for me and because i can show you that im ready to be a leader Ethan said.

that's the spirit sweetie now i know you've said no in the past but i just want to tell you that all of the suitors from other kingdoms from across the borders will be competing in the games for your hand in marriage Samantha said as her son sighed in frustration.

MOM I TOLD YOU THAT I DON'T WANT THE SUITORS TO COMPETE FOR MY HAND I'VE TURNED DOWN THE OFFER BEFORE CAUSE IM NOT INTERESTED IN THEM! BESIDES WHY CAN'T YOU JUST EXCPET THAT I CAN FIND SOMEONE ON MY OWN AND I SHOULD GET TO DECIDE WHO TO BE WITH! Ethan yelled in anger.

Samantha looked at her son surprised and in shock and the anger immediately disappeared from the prince's face.

im sorry i shouldn't yell please forgive me mother Ethan said remorsefully.

it's alright dear your right you should be able to choose for yourself that's why i will speak to the suitors and call off the games until your ready Mrs Morgan replied understandingly.

thank you mother Ethan said as he hugged her.

now if you'll excuse me i must start packing some clothes for my journey Ethan said as he left the dining room and went to his bedroom door once he was inside the room he went over to his closet and drawers and picked out a white vest a brown jacket black boots a grey belt with a hoster for his sword/blade and black gloves.

once the prince was fully dressed he left his bedroom and went to the living room area where his mother was reading a cooking book.

mother i am ready Ethan exclaimed.

oh baby you look so handsome Mrs Morgan said as she gave him a kiss on the cheek.

mother please Ethan said as his face turned red.

sorry now i packed you some food and drinks for the trip so you don't go hungry or thirsty and some extra outfits and weapons as well Samantha said as she put the items into the bag that Ethan had on his arm.

thanks mom and don't worry i won't let you or the people of our kingdom down i will make you proud and restore peace to the land Ethan confidently.

i know you will baby i have faith in you be careful and stay safe alright? Mrs Morgan said.

i will mother goodbye Ethan replied as he hugged her with that he walked towards the front entrance of the castle and ran out as his mother looked towards the door with tears in her eyes.

once Ethan was outside he walked over to the barn where the horses were sleeping and went inside the stall that his horse was in.

the female horse neighed with fear until she saw that it was only her rider and human companion.

easy girl it's only me now i have to go on a quest would you like to join me? Ethan asked.

she neighed happliy and Ethan smiled that's a girl he said.

he then got on the horse's back and galloped off into the unknown.
