magnificent Chateau Guillaumme. Within its grand walls resided a
beautiful Indian princess named Joan. Known for her grace and charm,
Princess Joan was adored by all who knew her.
One day, Princess Joan explored the magnificent gardens surrounding Chateau Guillaumme. She delighted in plucking a luscious pomegranate from a tree, relishing
its sweet and tangy juice. But as she enjoyed the garden's bounty, her golden ball slipped from her
grasp and fell into a serene pond.

frog had been watching over the pond. Seeing Princess Joan's distress,
the frog kindly offered his assistance.
With a grateful smile,
Princess Joan accepted the frog's help. The determined frog leaped into
the pond and swiftly retrieved the golden ball. He delicately placed it
at Princess Joan's feet, his eyes gleaming with satisfaction.
Overwhelmed with gratitude, Princess Joan exclaimed, "Dear frog, how can I ever repay you for your kindness?"
frog replied, "Princess Joan, all I ask is to be your loyal friend and
companion. Allow me to accompany you, share your joys and sorrows, and
find solace in your presence."
Touched by the frog's sincere
request, Princess Joan agreed without hesitation. From that moment on,
the frog became her faithful companion, hopping alongside her wherever

frog hopped onto her pillow and gazed at her with longing in his eyes.

replied, "Dear frog, you have been my steadfast companion. You are
welcome to find rest and comfort upon my pillow."

by the request, Princess Joan hesitated. Kissing a frog seemed unusual,
but she recognized the frog's sincere heart and the magical bond they
had formed. Overcoming her doubts, she leaned down and gently kissed the
frog on the mouth.

revealing his true form as a handsome African prince. The enchantment
that had bound him was broken, and he stood before Princess Joan,
radiating joy and gratitude, telling her that his name is Mathew and
that he is the prince of parang.

looked into each other's eyes, and an unspoken connection formed. They
both felt the stirrings of a profound love that had blossomed through
kindness and acceptance.
