Chapter 1 Once upon a time there lived king named King John the third. He lived in a huge castle surrounded by a bunch of armies and a giant huge moat full of water and sharks. He had it all made he had the money the riches and everything except the one thing he longed for, someone who he can love. He usually never got to get out of the castle so he did not get meet that many people. One day as he was walking through his courtyards he saw a young girl over the balcony she was at the pond picking flowers and humming wonderful little verses in as she pranced around. The king thought this girl was very attractive and beautiful. But the king never knew what love really was because every girlfriend he ever had would either be with him for his money or just so she can be queen.

So he thought that love was just a girl that wanted to be with him, so every time he'd try to marry he would find out that they were stealing and wasting his money. So now the king is paranoid about having a relationship with a girl. But the king was not a bad man he was very young and loyal to his people. He loved to play arrows and shoot the cross bow. So the next day he told his loyal advisor to fill in for him as he wondered out into town but the advisor although disagreeing said yes.

Chapter 2 Morning comes and the king is getting ready and fixing himself up to look rich and to smell good to be clean and stuff. But then the advisor comes in and asks him why he is dressed so richly. The king answers so I can show that woman I saw yesterday how rich I am. The advisor responds no she does not care about your riches or your looks (not) true love is found in the heart not in the riches or the looks. The king agreed and put on some old workman's clothes that was left there bye the workers who were working on the upstairs room. Then he told the advisor that he was leaving but the advisor warned the king not to go outside the castle and announce that he was a king because if he does the girls will not love you they will only be after you because you are a king. So the king took that advise very seriously and agreed. So on his way to the city he could not take his royal carriage or a horse or they might know he was rich. So instead he walked it was a very far walk but it was worth it to find true love. As he got to the village he looked around at all the shops and things that were around him because he had never seen them before. Then he started to look for the beautiful woman he saw at the pond the other day.

Chapter 3 Then all of a sudden the king walked into a shop and saw the girl inside looking for something nice to buy so she went to the counter to buy the new outfit that she had picked out but the man told her she did not have enough money to buy it. So the king being dressed up as a poor man told the clerk that he would pay what ever was needed.

The girl was already by that charmed by the way his generous heart was. She thanked him and asked him if he wanted to come to dinner with him and he agreed. The next day the king was leaving his castle to go to the girl he met at the shops house, the advisor stopped him and said are you leaving the castle without a gift for your friend. He replies why what ever do you mean, and the advisor told him that he needed to give her a gift to show her how generous you are and caring so the king went along with it and was going to give her a bunch of diamonds and pearls.

Then the advisor speaks out and tells him that if eh brings her all those jewels she is going to know that he is rich or something. So he brote her a simple rose instead. When he got their her house was not very wealthy but he looked passed that and wanted to really be with this girl but the thing is she didn't know that he looked at her like more than a friend.

Chapter 4 So when he first walked into the house he ignored the unwealthyness and focused on the girls face. He greeted her and she said hello back but he said I don't know you all that well but my name is John what is yours she replies my name is Mary Jane and I thank you very much for what you did at the shop the other day that was very polite of you.

THe king replies it was my pleasure doing that for a beutiful girl like you Mary jane just giggled thanks. As King John walked into the kitchen there he saw Mary janes family sitting patiently waiting for him to eat. The Mother very politly says we are having pork for dinner my young fellow, do you like pork. The king says why certainly pork is on of my favorite feasts. Then they start thanking the lord for his forgiveness and the food thats at the table. As they start to eat Mary Jane asks John where do you live, the king paused for a moment and then replies I live farther into the woods north. Then she asks maybe someday you can invite me to your house to eat dinner, thhen he says yeah sure whenever you want knowing that he lives in a rich castle.

Chapter 5 Then as he was leaving to return back to his house he tells Mary Jane what a good time he had and how lovely it was to meet her and that he likes her Mary Jane says it was nice to meet him to and she kissed him on the cheek goodbye and he went home and ran around inside his castle the whole entire night jumping up and down in happiness as he told his advisor that she gave him a kiss and that he thinks that she could be the one that he has been looking for the one that can fall in love with him. He wondered to himself for a while and asked himself I'm not going to keep this secret forever I have to tell her sooner or later because If I dont she is going to think that I was lying to her. But for the meanwhile he said outloud I am in love i am in love in a crazy out of control tone of voice. Then the next morning he leaves to go to her house then he sees her and tells her he has something he has to tell her. Mary Jane said its ok (by this time they were alredy boyfriend and girlfriend) you can tell me anything you want then John starts of slowly there has been a secret I have been holding from you. Then she asks so what do you like another girl, do you not love me anymore, do you...... Then John says no its not that I have to tell you that most of my life I have explained to you was a lie. What do you mean she asks, he says I mean that I am really a king, king John. She gaspes in surprise and replies so you have been lieing to me the whole entire time no he says the most important thing is I didnt lie about my love for you and how much I care about you then she bursts out in tears and says why didnt you tell me this he says because i have been with girls that are only after my money and i wanted to try and meet someone who likes me for who I am. Then she stops crying and says well i do like you for who you are and he says i know that and now that you know the truth we dont have to find out anything anymore and i also have another thing to say to
