Once Upon a time in the hearts of children, there existed wonder, fantasy, boundless joy and a sense of innocence. They romped through years unfettered by the worries of too many tomorrows. They knew only the warm feeling of unconditional love. Their world was perfect. But then, a thing called time visited them in their dreams and they said good bye.

Once upon a time… there was a girl prophesized to save us all. The girl was lost to the world and herself until the boy came along. The boy’s purpose was her, but together can they save the world and their love? Only in a fairytale they can.

Peculiarly enough, Patrick pondered the journey. Poppies poised, he plunged forth praying. Pleased, she penned a poem.
