The King and Queen


Once upon a time there lived a King and Queen. 

Their names were Alex and Sara. They lived in a
castle. They had two children. Their names were 
Nick and Alani. Alani was 5 and Nick was 9. 

All vines were covered all over the castle. It 

turned to night. Sara fell asleep. It was the afternoon.

Sara was still not awake, so Alex came and gave Sara a

kiss cuddle and Sara woke up.

I woke up one day and found this story stuck with sticky tape to my bedroom wall, next to the bed. Not only was I impressed at the amount of work that had gone into it, but I thought there might be some deeper themes at play 🙂
