The nice princess and
the unfriendly mermaid
Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom lived a nice princess in a
castle with her parents and sisters. She was really kind, friendly and
beautiful, her name was Luna, she had plenty of friends, and she
considered all of them as her true friends, that was the reason
because she used to tell them everything about herself and her
environment, but what she didn’t know is that was going to give her a
Once her mother told her “My dear little Luna please be careful with
what you tell to your friends, and the princess answered “Don’t worry
mum, I´m sure all of them are my true friends and if I need them,
they will always be here with me”.
The princess Luna couldn’t swim and once on a meeting
with all her friends she said them “ I´m going to tell you
something about me, but first I need you to promise me that
you will never tell it to anyone”, and all answered her “ we
promise you” , and Luna said , “Ok , I can’t swim, I am very
afraid from the water , but I would like to know the sea”, so
that one of her friends told her “ Sweetie, all of us can swim
and we can go to sea with you , we are going to take care
you”, and Luna replied “ That is a fantastica idea, if I had told
you it before, I would have known the sea time ago ,
anyway, let´s go there tomorrow in the morning”.
In the same kingdom lived a mermaid who was very envious
and unfriendly, she lived alone and she didn’t have any
friends. She knew almost all about the princess Luna and
she wanted to shatter her, but she didn’t know that the
princess couldn’t swim.
All of Luna´s friends weren’t reliable, they were hypocritical
and feel envious of the princess, with an exception of two of
them Laura and Sofia.
The mermaid knew this and she had the power to become
on a human being, and also, she could become on an animal
to any person that go into the sea. So, one day the mermaid
asked herself “What can I do in order to the princess go into
sea?”, and then she thought “I will go to talk with her
friends, I am sure they can help me”.
Immediately the mermaid became on a human being and
went to talk with Lunas´s friends except with Laura and
Sofia, she told them “ I know that you feel envious of the
princess as me, for that reason you can be my allied and
together we can become to the princess on an ugly animal,”
all of them said “ Yes, off course, we agree with you, and the
mermaid replied “I need you to tell me , what is Luna’s
One of them answered “ She can´t swim but she would like
to know the see, and tomorrow in the morning we are going
to go there with her”, the mermaid smiled and say “ That is
fantastic, it is our opportunity to shatter her,”. The mermaid
had been looking forward to this moment since the princess
born, and said to the friends “I am going to prepare
everything and I just need that you go to the sea with the
princess tomorrow, Do you agree with me? “Yes” with a
huge smile they answered.
The mermaid didn’t realize that Laura and Sofia had listened
all the conversation behind a door, and she went back to the
sea, so that Laura and Sofia were wondering themselves,
what to do to avoid that terrible plan, but the other friends
enclosed them on a dark room.
The next day Luna was very happy because she was
going to know the sea, she said to her friends “ I am
really excited , hurry up, let´s go to the sea”
When they got there, the mermaid was waiting for them
and told the princess “ Come on dear Luna , go into the
water”, but the princess felt nervous and so embarrassed
because she couldn’t swim and all the friends encouraged
her to go into sea until she did it , after that all her friends
left the water and Luna said “what happen , why aren’t you
here with me”.
Meanwhile Laura and Sofia were trying to get out from that
room, they shouted very loud and suddenly a unicorn
appeared to help them, and Laura said “The princess Luna is
in troubles, let´s go to help her”.
The mermaid said “ Princess Luna you
are very disgusting to me, and I had
been waiting for this moment a long
time ago , now you are going to be an
ugly rat forever”, and Luna felt too fear
more than to the water and started to
swim to flee from the mermaid but she
caught her and was about to become
her on a rat.
When Laura and Sofia shouted “ Stop ugly mermaid, we
aren’t going to let you do that”, the mermaid laughed and
said “ You are crazy stupid girls”,
In this moment the unicorn appeared and took to Luna and
got out her from the water, and then killed to the mermaid.
Luna thanked to the unicorn, Laura and Sofia, and said to
the other friends “Today I understood that you are not true
friends, and I had not realized about it, now you are going to
live enclosed for ever on a dark room”.
Finally, the princess organized a party to celebrated her friendship
with Laura and Sofia because they were true friends, and Luna learnt
the importance of having a true friend in the life, and about don’t tell
everything to everybody, and she lived happily ever after.
