"My life used to be very happy," Aurelia knelt down and took the hands of the two younger children. "I'm the oldest of six, and all were girls except for one. But one day my mother got very sick and she died. My father became exceptionally sad because of this and in time he became exceptionally mean. You see I and two of my sisters were special. Where I am from some people are gifted with the ability to do magic. And the three of us, we could. He blamed my mother dying on our magic. And he was cruel to us because of it. We did not like be treated so unkindly so we left. I was separated from them for a long time, but now I get to see them again. And I have my friends and a wonderful husband and children. It was very nice to be a spoiled princess, but things are even nicer now." She concluded her story with a smile. She could see how enraptured they had been, and said to the youngest sibling, 'but you would make a far better princess than I was. You're like my sister when she was younger, she grew up to be a very successful and wealthy woman."
