Not so long ago in a kingdom not so far away, there lived a handsome and wealthy Prince. This Prince loved parties, and all things lavish, surrounded by the rich & powerful. One night during a terrible storm, a beggar arrived looking for shelter. The Prince repulsed by her appearance ordered her to leave - ignoring her warnings not to judge by appearance, the Prince banished her, and paid a hefty price...
