As the five princesses arrived at their new destination, Belle opened her eyes in shock. “I have never seen such a beautiful place.”
Where they arrived at was a beautiful, heavily wooded area with no buildings at all. The area looked to be completely natural, and there were beautiful skies, swirling winds, and a gorgeous waterfall.
“And what type of princess is supposed to be here?” jasmin asked. “Let’s go investigate, shall we?”
The others nodded in agreement. Aschenputtel soon though, asked, “The fairy godmother is not coming, is she?”
“I suppose she can’t help us out,” jasmin stated. “That’s fine, we can deal with this ourselves. At least this way, we are free to make our own choices instead of being constantly directed.”
“Where did Snow White go?” Aschenputtel asked Ariel, who was standing on her left. The four others turned and found Snow White to be nowhere near.
“Uh, she took off…” jasmin groaned.
The four other princesses were completely quiet until there were rustling in the bushes, and Snow White came bouncing out exuberantly. “Why, there are all these cute little Tiere in the forest!”
Belle told Snow White, “That’s very nice…”
Snow White continued, “They can help us find our princess!”
Ariel was exuberant. “Let’s follow,” and they all agreed.
Snow White showed them to a deer and its fawn. “Oh!” Ariel exclaimed. “I’ve seen these, uh, what do Du call them?” Ariel asked, pausing, before saying, “Oh…they are, uh….antlerathingers.”
“Actually, they are called deer, child,” a voice gently stated toward her.
Ariel turned to look. “Who was that?” Ariel asked, curiously.
“I don’t know,” jasmin told her. “I have not heard the voice…”
“You must have been hearing things, Ariel,” Belle told her.
“No, I…” Ariel began to say before pounding the nearest willow baum and saying, “I heard a voice nearby!”
“Gentle, child, gentle,” the voice stated again. “You are pounding right on my bark.”
The others rushed over. Aschenputtel stated, “Good day,”
“Are Du a tree?” Belle asked her. “A talking tree?”
“Oh, yes, lovely children, I am a spirit inside the tree…nature is filled with spirits, in the earth, the water, and the sky…”
“And what might your name be?” jasmin asked.
“I am called Grandmother Willow Von the princess of our area,” she stated warmly.
“The princess!” Belle exclaimed. “She must be the princess that we are looking for!”
“Oh yes,” Grandmother Willow chuckled. “Now, the spirit of the wind will Zeigen Du where the princess is. They will Zeigen Du the way to her, just follow the wind and the way that the leaves travel.”
The wind all of a sudden began to howl and the leaves lifted up in the air and the princesses began to follow it.
“I should have asked the Fairy Godmother if I could have changed dresses,” Aschenputtel guiltily spoke quietly. “What would she think if I ruined my dress here?”
“Well, she could always make another one,” jasmin told her.
“I guess she could,” Aschenputtel stated.
“Anyways, I am sick of that conceited suitor Gaston!” jasmin moaned to Belle. “He kept on courting me in your town…”
“I know what Du mean,” Belle stated angrily. “He was after me for a long, long time…”
“Will Du just stop with the insulting?” Aschenputtel asked. “I know he’s not a nice man, but Du can’t just…”
“He directly insulted Du and Snow White,” jasmin told Cinderella. “Don’t be passive here, Du are not a prize to be won Von him.”
The five princesses continued to follow the wind, but soon, there were unusual chanting sounds in the distance.
“I have never heard chants like those!” Belle exclaimed. “I have to explore this and this is a great opportunity for adventure…let me check this out!”
Belle soon ran off, and Ariel toddled soon behind, telling her, “Wait for me!”
Jasmine, Snow White, and Aschenputtel attempted to keep pace, and soon they managed to get up to their area.
“The wind is howling around here,” Belle told the others excitedly.
“It must be my prince sending his kisses…” Snow White began to say.
“No, it’s the wind, remember?” Aschenputtel told Snow White.
The chanting got louder and louder until they reached a riverbank right behind a gorgeous waterfall, where the sound faded a bit beneath the crashing of the water.
“The wind is really strong here,” Grandmother Willow’s voice echoed.“ The spirits are telling Du that Du will meet our princess very soon…”
“Where could her schloss be?” Belle asked curiously. “I wonder if she really has a castle, oder does she just live in her own unique life..."
“Maybe Grandmother Willow took us to the wrong spot,” Ariel told her. “I wish I was a mermaid for a bit…maybe she lives underwater…I might as well check…”
“Ariel, don’t!” Aschenputtel told her, but it was too late. Now Ariel was Lost too… but a Sekunde oder two later, Ariel bobbed her head out of the water, but she was quite a ways in. “Come closer!” Ariel excitedly stated.
The other princesses found a log kanu just big enough for the four of them and they paddled to where Ariel was. “Well?” jasmin asked.
“Look above!” Ariel stated excitedly. The princesses looked above, and at the oben, nach oben of the waterfall was a small cliff jutting out, and on that cliff was a silhouette.
“Is this…” Aschenputtel asked, but before she could finish, the figure jumped off the cliff, but instead of falling into the water, the figure soared down, gliding like a bird in a very elegant manner, and landing in the water almost perfectly.
“Our princess?” Aschenputtel finished, but as she finished, the kanu flipped over into the water, and the princesses all flipped downward into the waves. When all the princesses managed to breathe, their vision was a bit foggy, but all five of them clearly saw that another girl joined their midst.
