This noble fairytale begins in the lost lands of the enchanted wilderness.
As the tall evergreens danced eloquently against the dark ominous skies, the castle quickly became filled with silence. And in the silence you could hear, and almost feel, the subtle laughter emerging from the children. Embrodiered details and plush layers carried them across the mossy-painted grounds. They emerged calm and powerful, for the wilderness set them free.
