Overview

Drusilla loves Prince Aubrey, but can he requite her love? Her sister Margery is so very beautiful, and Drusilla is so very large. (Short story, 5,550 words)
Excerpt:
Her father met her with a frown. "Read this," he said, holding out a piece of parchment.
"Excellent and most honored King Piers," the letter began. "I beseech your forgiveness for departing in such haste. Although I honor and admire Princess Drusilla, I regret that I am unable to offer for her hand. I am of only middling size, and Drusilla is such a very large princess...."
Drusilla looked at her trembling hands. They were indeed very large, but she had hoped, nay believed, that he did not find them so. Had he always perceived her thus...e'en during the times he had seemed most tender? How soft his dark eyes had seemed to be when they looked on her.

    It seems incomplete. I think it would be better if extended. It was a good story line but could have been better

    Perfect love story

    Although its short, its certainly sweet. The only thing missing are more words, it could be made into a full length novel given enough imagination...its not often someone has the nerve and common sense to remember that love has no eyes so size isn't always a factor. I enjoyed it immensely and will surely read more of this author. I look forward to reading a book with more words but you can't fix what's not broken and this author has it right...love is such a wonderful thing!!

    Short but fufilling

    I know some of you do not care for short storirs, because they leave you hanging at the end. Now while the last three words do leave you hanging they do allowfor the reader to decide what should come of the prince. As for the storie itself it is writen in old English, but that only ads to its grace. This strorie would be good to read a child/teen who feels ugly because of there size. It is also a good work of art for an adult who feels the same. Overall I did enjoy this book. I am proud to have it in my collection. I recomend it I even liked how I get to choose what should be done at the end.

    Cute read, satisfactory ending.

    With a little more work this acceptable short story could be a very good novel. I enjoyed it and would love more details and longer story.
    Some things were unlikely, such as the king allowing Drusilla to go with only John and no other. Still a good read overall.

    The title grabbed my attention and I thought I'd give it a read. What I found was an interesting read and while I could tell where it was going to go, I found it quite enjoyable. I also would have liked for the story to go on, but in the end-- You get what you pay for...

    While this is really short, any time is a waste. It makes no sense. It was dumped pretty quickly!

    It is only 18 pages long, but it is also free. If you are looking for a book to read randomly this is your book. It has a neat plot, would have been a very good novel.

    This was a pretty good story. It could have been longer and the ending felt a little incomplete, but I enjoyed it. It was only about 19 pages with the last few pages an exert of another book.

    Some parts of it were unrealistic, like allowing the princess to leave with John without an escort. But it was a good, quick read.
