Lady Emma lived in a land where witches, dragons and even trolls resided. She once fell under a spell from the witch and she felt lost but she knew just what to do. Not always did Emma find her own way out of trouble. Her father was there to help her and protect her. As Lady Emma grew, troubles didn't go away. She soon had a handsome Prince that was there to protect her during the good and bad times. Lady Emma was grateful for her father and the Prince's support over the years. In the mix of her maturing days she was proud to let her father and the Prince know:
“You sillies! I've got this! I can't wait and pout. When I get into mix-ups, I'll work myself out.”
And they all lived happily ever after.
