Once upon a time, there was a girl who had one little brother and frustrating job left with herself, her parents were dead she had no friends and no one besides herself who can guide her and look after her. She does every household work alone, did a part-time job and she had to look after her brother's schooling, and also pay the rent of her house. Sometimes she had to sleep hungry. One day she gave up and decided to end her life and also of her brothers so she decided to poison the food but as she was going to do so suddenly there was light all around the house and she heard a voice, the voice told her that she is actually a princess of the kingdom of Laconia. She is a true royal heir. She was shocked to hear it and was puzzled. She was not able to decide what to do, whom to contact. That night she dreamed of herself as a Queen and was eager to become a Queen. In the morning when we woke she found herself at a different place which was a grand hall where there we're beautiful chandeliers, paintings, portraits, wall decoration, and a big dining table. Soon she realized that it was not a dream it was real, her clothes changed into beautiful gowns and hair bun had roses and she was wearing a crown and antique ornaments, she saw her brother in the outfit of the prince and he was surrounded by maids and workers. Before she could stabilize herself she was called upon by an old aged woman near the throne and reluctantly she walked towards them and she was asked that where was she till now, kingdom needed her and she was nowhere to be found.
