Chapter 5: Katie's Royal Ball

Purathena was sitting in the library in the morning; she was reading a book she checked out. She suddenly over herd some girls talking. It was Maria Yakumo and Marina.

“Maria are you going to the Spring Ball next week?” “You know I am! Katie is like my lost sister, we get along fine. Are you going Marina?”

“Yes I am! I can’t wait to see Katie’s dress. What about you Yakumo?” “Of course I will come. I hope to see everyone there.”

Purathena was very excited but to here that but, didn’t know if her mother would let her go.

Maria came up to her just then, she sat next to here. “Well are you going to the ball Purathena?”

She looked at her, she was very puzzled. “I don’t know Maria, I wonder if my mother would let me go?”

Time had passed since this morning; it was time to go home Purathena was going to ask her mother about the ball.

She was only 12 at the time, but she wanted to go and meet people. Unfortunately her mother Amilia didn’t think Purathena was old enough to go to a big party.

“I know you want to go Purathena, but I don’t think you are ready to go into a public party.”

“I will go to the ball with your father, we will bring you something special ok.” “Ok…Mother I will stay here.”

She sat in her room sadden; all she could do is cry. It was about time for the ball and her parents got ready for the ball, she kissed her daughter and left.

Purathena watched the carriage leave the castle, she sat in her room just sadden that her mother didn’t let her go.

Meanwhile at the ball the other princesses and princes were there, they all have very extravagant dresses on.

They looked very sheik at the ball; Katie wore a beautiful ball gown.

Maria Yakumo and Marina wore beautiful ball gowns as well, they danced the night away.

If you didn’t know the Spring Ball is also the birthday of Katie.

Sadly Purathena looked at the night sky. “I don’t like being 12 at all, everyone considers you a child.”

Maru came into the room he overheard her. “Well dear it takes time to mature, don’t worry you will have your ball soon.”

Purathena decided that Sunday was coming soon, she went to sleep quietly.

It was morning Purathena woke up just then, her mother Queen Amillia came into the room.

“Good Morning sweetie, how did you sleep?” She looked at her mother sweetly. “I slept ok mother.”

She gave her a special trinket that she got from the ball, it was a jeweled flower made with Pink Tourmaline and Emeralds.

Sunday flew by fast and it was a school day, Purathena heard everyone talking about the ball.

Maria came up to her right about now. “Why didn’t you go to the ball Purathena?”
“I was too young to go to the ball I am only 12.” She responded in a no so flattering tone.

Skitty the Earth Princess overheard them and cut in just then. “Wow I feel sad for you, so when is your birthday any way?” She asked her sweetly.

“My birthday is Dec.22 I was born on that date, which is where the winter festival begins.”

Skitty look flabbergasted at first and, she was kind of shocked at first. “Wow no wonder you are the youngest person at our school.”

Electra cut in just then after Skitty. “She is not young Skitty, even though she is 12.” Skitty looked at her in a not so friendly way, and went back to work.

Andreus was sitting next to her at class; he knew she was lonely at times because of her age.

“Purathena are you ok? You seem sadden right now.” She looked at him softly. “Oh I’m ok Andreus; it’s just that being young isn’t fun.” He looked at her sweetly.

“Well you’re not alone Purathena, I am the same age as you.” She looked puzzled at first when he responded. “Really you are 12 as well?” he nodded at her sweetly.

When she heard that she finally realized, that she is not alone and had a friend she can turn to.
