Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, lived a girl.

She was marvelous: wise, beautiful, and talented. The wind sang, the water danced, and the earth bowed, all for her. All who saw her knew her to be flawless. The world belonged to her.

Yet, she was not happy. Though she had all she could have wanted, her soul longed for something--something she could not describe or understand. Her world could not satisfy the desire in her soul, the hollow emptiness born of the half-remembered echoes of a song she had never heard, a dance she had never learned, a land she had never seen.
