Once upon time, there was a child living in the worst kingdom in the world. The child was born in a small, old house close to the palace of the king. This king treated people badly. He killed those who did not listen to his commands, and he tortured those who wanted to buy or sell from his kingdom without his consent. When the child was born, everything changed in the kingdom.
The child was born with special powers. He can smell fear from a far distance. He gives orders to animals, and they listen to him. Edward didn’t know he will use magic in the future. The child did not know about his special powers until something strange happened.
One strange night, the sky was raining heavily, and the sound of thunder was loud. Edward was scared until he heard a voice from afar calling his name. He followed the sound to the woods. Suddenly, he stopped. He looked between the trees. He noticed there was a woman coming towards him. He asked, “Who’s there?” She responded in a soft voice, “I am your angel. I am here to help you.” He asked, “If you are coming to help me, why don’t you show yourself?” She said, “Not now brave boy. I am here to let you know the king will kill you when he knows you have special powers against him. Also, you have special powers that will allow you to kill the king.“ He asked, “ What kind of special powers do I have?” She said, “Follow your heart.” When the dawn came, he woke up from his dream.
One day, he went to the woods to explore the area. Suddenly, he smelled fear and that made his heart beat fast. He walked towards the smell. Every moment, as he walked towards the smell, his heart was beating more than before. After awhile, a lion appeared in front of him growling in fear. The lion was so scary that made Edward afraid of him. When the lion started to pounce, Edward shouted loudly, “Stop please!” The lion immediately responded to his order. At that moment, Edward really understood that he has special powers. He wanted to know more about his special powers and how he can control these special powers, but he didn’t know the danger that would put him in.
Five years later, the same dream started recurring every month. Edward decided to find the answer to his dream. The next day, he went to see a wise, old man to ask him about his dream. The old man said, “You need to go north until you find the kingdom ruled by the most beautiful woman in the world. You should know something about the Queen. She kills any man who marries any woman from her kingdom because the Queen doesn’t believe in love. Queen Elizabeth rules the Kingdom of Beauty.”
He rode his horse towards the north. He crossed all the deserts. He fought death. He climbed the mountains. He fought dragons. He went over the seas facing storms and sea monsters. He crossed the jungles facing the wild animals. Every time, he almost got killed and faced death.
When he arrived to the Kingdom Of Beauty, he was shocked. The whole population were women. When the gates opened, he walked to the palace to meet Queen Elizabeth. Every woman was more beautiful than the other. Finally, he arrived at the palace, and he asked the guards if he could meet the Queen. After a while, the Queen appeared. He immediately knelt down and kissed her hand. When he raised his head, he was shocked when she started talking. The voice was the same voice in his dream. He asked her to interpret his dream. She agreed to his request. She started to explain his dream, and how he can deal with it.
As a result, she offered to teach him how to use his powers. Day after day, Edward became stronger than before. Edward learned how he can control these special powers. After months of training, Edward was ready to go back to his kingdom.
The king knew Edward went to the Kingdom Of Beauty. He sent a big army led by Lieutenant Alejandro Gonzalez to find Edward and kill him. This army was considered to be the strongest army in the kingdom. The army marched for many months towards the Kingdom of Beauty.
At the same time, Queen Elizabeth realized that she had fallen in love with Edward. When Edward left the kingdom, she missed him a lot, and she felt hollow. She didn’t sleep most nights because she was thinking about him. She was afraid something might happen to him. She cried when Edward left the kingdom, but Edward didn’t know about this true love.
The next day, Queen Elizabeth sent some soldiers to bring him back to her kingdom. She gave the soldiers a message written by her hand. After a few days, the soldiers found Edward sleeping under a big tree. When he woke up, he found the soldiers had arrived with a letter from Queen Elizabeth. He opened the letter, and he was surprised.
The letter said, “Dear Edward, I write these words from my heart and my soul. I love to hear you say my name. I hate to see you sad. I hate to see you mad that makes me feel sad. Love is an empty place without you. I love the way you smile that makes my heart beat hard. Please come back to my heart. Come back to my kingdom. I love you Edward. Yours truly.”
When Edward finished reading the letter, Lt. Gonzalez suddenly appeared in front of him. Edward was scared of facing Lt. Gonzalez with the whole army by himself, so he rode his horse towards the north. He ran for days, and Lt. Gonzalez followed him to the north.
When Edward arrived to the Kingdom Of Beauty, he shouted loudly, “The war is coming! The war is coming!“ When the gates opened, all of the army of the Kingdom of Beauty was incredible. The army contained wizards who rode trees, rode horses of fire and rode on eagles. Other wizards used thunder, clouds, climate and gravity as their weapons.
Lt. Gonzalez was brave to face that army. Lt.Gonzalez launched some attacks that made the battle hard. That battle was unbelievable. Both sides had a lot of losses. However, Edward was doing well in this battle. Queen Elizabeth was worried about Edward and how he was doing in the battle. During the battle, Edward faced Lt. Gonzalez. Edward was seriously wounded in the chest. Queen Elizabeth was so angry that she rode her white horse to the battle. Lt. Gonzalez almost cut off Edward’s head. She threw her sword from a far distance, and the sword struck in the middle of Lt. Gonzalez’s chest.
Queen Elizabeth rode between the dead bodies to see Edward laying in the battle field fighting death. Edward almost died in Queen Elizabeth’s arms. She kissed him and cried on his chest. Suddenly, Edward opened his eyes and felt he was in heaven. Everything was green around Queen Elizabeth. Her wavy, long, black hair was like a curtain, and her smell was so magnificent that he felt cozy and warm. After awhile, his dizziness left him, and he realized that his love was holding him.
However, the battle was not yet finished. He stood on his feet again to watch Lt. Gonzalez die. When the Lt.Gonzalez died, the rest of the soldiers ran back to Edward’s home kingdom.
In Edward’s home kingdom, the king was very angry even though he didn’t know what he would do. He was so scared of Edward because Edward had killed his best lieutenant. After a few weeks, Edward arrived at his home kingdom with Queen Elizabeth to fight the king who treated his people like animals or worse. Edward faced the king at his palace. Edward was using magic against the king. Queen Elizabeth was taking care of the army in the kingdom with her wizards. The king was using lions and that was against the king because Edward can subdue the animals. He gave the order for the lions to kill the king. The lions attacked the king and tore him to pieces.
After he killed his king, Edward became the king for the kingdom. Edward became the husband of the queen. They ruled the kingdom through justice and wisdom. The citizens of the kingdom needed to give the kingdom a new name. Days later, the citizens decided to name the kingdom the Kingdom of Justice.
