■ The Story

Once upon a time, the Princess of a faraway land ruled in tranquility...
Until she was kidnapped by the scheming Dark Lord.
The Dark Lord was determined to make the unwilling Princess his bride.
Locking her away in his castle, he ordered a skeleton to keep a stern watch over his prize.
The docile henchmen kept to his least at first.
The weeping beauty before the skeleton conjured strange feelings. Yes, he wanted to return the Princess to her former life, away from the Dark Lord's marital machinations!
And so it was the lowly skeleton betrayed his master and set the Princess free.
