Princess Nada and the City of Ice
She would spend hours alone in the exotic gardens of her father, singing to the wondrous birds and talking to the extraordinary animals the king had brought from far-off lands.
But before long she was the laughing stock of the kingdom. "Did you know that the Princess Nada talks to animals?" sneered some.
"It simply isn't normal!" scoffed others. What kind of a princess is she? Not even pretty."
It was true that Nada was not interested in feasting and dancing and all of the other things that a princess is expected to do. And so she was scorned throughout the kingdom. Only the animals were her friends, for she had no others…
…except for Faruq, the gardener's son. Faruq was of common birth. He was handsome, noble and strong of spirit. His days were spent in quietude among the flora and fountains of the vast palace grounds. They were truly special friends and often Nada joined him in his work.
One morning as they sat by the fountain, Jabr the parrot came flying through the palms into the garden at lightning speed, very upset. "Whatever is the matter, Jabr?" asked Nada, reaching out her hand.
"We are under siege! The kingdom is under attack!" the excited bird shrieked between gasps. "The Voths are coming in their ships!"End of Preview!Find out more
