SectionThis is the story of how I died.
Don’t worry, this is actually a very fun story and the truth is, it isn’t even mine.
This is the story of a girl named Rapunzel and it starts with the sun.
Now, once upon a time, a single drop of sunlight fell from the heavens and from this small drop of sun, grew a magic, golden flower. It had the ability to heal the sick and injured.
Oh, theres an old woman you might want to remember. She’s kind of important.
Well, centuries passed, and a hop skip and a boat ride away there grew a kingdom. The kingdom was ruled by a beloved King and Queen.
And the Queen, (well,) she was about to have a baby. She got sick. Really, sick.
She was running out of time, and that’s when people usually start to look for a miracle. Or in this case, a magic golden flower.
Ah, I told you the old woman would be important. You see, instead of sharing the sun’s gift, this woman, Mother Gothel, hoarded its healing power and used it to keep herself young for hundreds of years, and all she had to do was sing a special song.
You get the gist. She sings to it, she turns young, creepy right?
Then, the Guards found it.
The magic of the golden flower healed the queen.
A healthy baby girl, a princess was born, with beautiful golden hair.
I’ll give you a hint: That’s Rapunzel.
To celebrate her birth, the King and Queen lunged a flying lantern into the sky. And for that one moment, everything was perfect.
And then that moment ended.
Gothel broke into the castle, stole the child and just like that - gone.
The kingdom searched and searched but they could not find the princess. For deep within the forest, in a hidden tower. Gothic raised the child as her own.
Gothel had found new magic flower, but this time she was determined to keep it hidden.
But the walls of that tower could not hide everything.
Each year, on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousands of lanterns into the sky, in hope that one day, their lost princess would return.
