Magic Music Box

"Don't Just Read , Imagine"

~@# Magic Music Box #@~

In a magical castle made of pure white blocks of bricks , grapevines all entangled all over the castle like a plague but a good one.And inside the castle , was a giant and beautiful throne with hundreds of steps leading the way to the throne.In front of the throne , all royal advisors and soldiers were lining up in order.Sitting on the throne , there she was.The great queen dressed with a beautiful dress and jewelry all over her.On her head , an golden crown that would blind everyone in a single flash.ALl around her was servants of different sizes , all helping the queen or grooming the queen.She was the most happiest girl in the world , she has power and riches to sastify any needs.

But everything started to disappear out of her eyes like a swirling tornado , all sucked up and spitted out to nowhere.Her dress turned into a normal clothing dress , her crown turned into a simple bow with polka dots.She woke up on her bed , nothing but cold sweat and an empty feet.She hated herself for waking up so fast , she wanted to dream more.She wanted to be the queen for her whole life , she don't want it to be just a brief moment.But she rubbed her eyes and tossed herself on her bed once more.She wanted to dream yet again !!!

But with a loud thug on her toes , her mom woke her up by shouting , "Its morning , RISE AND SHINE.Come on , lets go to the market.Mommy could teach you some tips on choosing the right vegies for dinner".The girl woke up with half closing eyes with a little yawn.Her mom took a new dress for the girl and she washed her daughter's face with a cloth and some water.In just in a matter of minutes , the girl was all dressed up and ready to go.The girl is mute , she can't talk but she can still hear.She has two cute ponytails and soft gentle hands.She plays the piano very well , her tutor always call her "Twinkle Fingers".After a little breakfast , they went to the morning market.

They bought everything they need that day.Fish , vegies and a little chicken , enough to last lunch and the dinner for the day.On the way back home , the girl eyes caught something interesting.She saw a wonderful music box inside an antique store , the angel on top of the music box was spinning around slowly with a beautiful tune.She kept on staring it spinning around , a beautiful angel with a golden halo on top of it.Something made the music box looked so special , she wanted to buy it.She went over to her mom and begged for some coins , her mom gave her a few pennies and straight away the girl went back to the antique shop.She went inside the shop , everything inside it was so old and antiquish.She has never seen such a magnificent sight.All around here , was old clocks and music boxes.It had music boxes with different styles to them and old clocks which tickered with each second passed by.

The old owner looked at her with small little eyes , he was surprise to see a young child in his shop of antiques.The girl went to the counter where the old man was.She took the music box she wanted and placed it on top of the counter.The girl used hand signs to tell the old man she wanted to buy the music box.The old man immediately knew that she was mute , he told the girl that she needs 5 pennies to buy the little music box.The old man was different from most old men though.He had such a radiant smile and a welcoming face , he was old but he looked like as he lived forever.The girl paid for the music box and was ready to go away.The old man stopped her and said "This music box would change your life".The girl was confused about what he said but she went out to greet her mother and went off home.

When she reached home , she ignored her mother on teaching her how to cook sweet pepper chicken.She went up to her room , lied on her bed and opened the music box.The music box flowed out a thousand melodies and a soothing tune.The angel with golden halo spinned around while flashing a light.The room was getting dimmer as the clouds were slowly covering the sun , the light from the angel gotten more and more brighter.The girl was staring at it with motionless eyes , she sat there while looking at the angel.Suddenly the room shook hard , its like an earthquake.The girl screamed as the room shook with a trembling power.She yelled for her mother but to no avail.The whole room changed , the walls changed from wood to bricks.Her furniture was all gone suddenly , leaving her bed and the music box in the room.The girl hid under the bed while closing her eyes.

Just as the music box fell to the ground , the trembling stopped.The girl got out of the bed and looked around.Everything was all the same in her room except for disappeared furnitures and changed walls.She took up the music box but she dropped it again after a loud bang on the door.She went to open the door and was surprised to see a giant teedy bear infront of her.It was wearing a tuxedo with a gentle combed hair , it has the cutest smile you ever seen.The teddy bear took the girl's hand and placed her on top of it's head."My name is Gustave , I am hear to escort you to the king" , he said with a warm smile.

The place they were at was a servant room , it was abandoned for a long time but the girl was curious about how the teddy bear knew she was there.Gustave told her , "This music box is the key for you to come here , it won't be opened unless you give to it the king".The girl tried as much she can to open the box but she can't open it , it was easy to open at the first time but now its all sealed up.The teddy bear took the girl out of the servant's chambers and ended up in a beautiful garden.Flowers were blooming everywhere the smell of spring in the air , honey bees were buzzing around just to get nectar to produce honey.They passed by a bridge , under the bridge was a golden river of honey.At the end of the river was a giant waterfall of golden honey , Gustave took a handful of honey from the river and gave it to the girl.She ate the honey with a lickering smile.Suddenly a bunch of birds flew over her and placed a flower necklace around her neck , each flower had a very beautiful scent.

They went through the grand dining hall , the waiters were tending to the long table.All the waiters were stuffed animals and toy soldiers were scouting the area for danger.The chefs came out with a big tummy while holding a giant plate and on top of it was giant chickens , fruits and ice creams.The cheif chef came out with a giant hot blumbling pot , he poured the soup in the pot into a giant bowl.Every chef went to stir the soup in the bowl with a giant metal spoon.The girl could see her reflection on the spoon.She was shocked to see that she was dressed in a beautiful dress.The chefs saw her and went to her with roller skates under their feet.They gave her free samples of their most finest dish.She never ate such a delicious dish before in her life but in the same time , she misses her mother's dish.

They arrived at the throne , it was all the same from her dream from before.She walked up the hundred steps to the throne , she never got tired from all that climbing.She looked back and noticed something was changed.In her dream , there was advisors but right now it was all toys.Dinosaur toys wearing a red coat while holding a piece of royal message waiting to send it to the king.Giant toy soldiers acted as knights to keep the peace of the toy kingdom.Teddy bears with long beards wearing magician robes that sparkled.Everyone was talking and enjoying , the royal dancers were dancing gracefully by the side.

She reached the king's throne , she silently gave the king the music box.The king was wearing a mask and worn a giant metallic armor with a giant sword behind his back.He looked strong and all mighty but he had a gentle side.He carried the girl and placed her on his thigh.He took the music box and showed the crowd.Everyone went silent for awhile and the girl was curious of why did they became silent.The king opened the box and was revealed.A melancholy melody came out of the music box and the whole place was shaking.It all happened again , everything flashing and disappearing.

She was back on her bed.She was confused on what was going on , she saw the music box on top of her table.She took it and went back to the antique shop.But as soon as she stopped there ... there was no antique shop.Only a tree...and under it a teddy bear that looks like Gustave and a mask of the king she just met.
