Albert, a young frog fresh from the pond, overheard the story of a fabled frog that was kissed by a princess. He turned into a handsome prince, and they lived happily ever after. Albert wanted to live happily ever after.
Bewitched by the tale of The Frog Prince, Albert waited by the path, and was discovered by the princess and her handmaiden. With a giggle, the handmaiden dropped to a knee, held Albert high in her cupped hands, offering him to the princess in jest. The princess gave the handmaiden a mock, appreciative smile, pulled the maiden's hands toward her lips, and gave Albert a kiss on the top of his head. With this silliness over, the handmaiden set Albert down alongside the path, and the two continued on their way.
"I lay by the side of the path for a long time, limp and exhausted, trembling, and the ground beneath me was spinning! I could feel my frog body beginning to change. Here I go! Here I go! Then there was nothing. Nothing! I did not turn into a prince. I slept."
Now what? Will Albert be able to live happily ever after? You won't believe what happens next!
