Princess Annalise is young, naïve and is spoiled. She’s a pretty princess who lives in a beautiful castle with a daddy who spoils her rotten. The sad part is, she doesn’t have a mother. When King Edward realizes that his daughter needs a mother, he decides to host a royal competition. Each competitor will be given a period of time to learn about Annalise and to get to know her and learn to love her. At the end, Annalise must decide which one of the four princesses will become the new queen and her new mother.

1. The Idea

King Edward watches from the balcony at his daughter playing with her nurses in the meadow. He smiles as he watches her brown locks stream behind her and laughs as she laughs as her pretty blue dress sways in the wind. King Edward watches his daughter and wants to cry. She’s so much like her mother. I wish Addie was here to see her.

            Whenever the king, spends even a moment with his daughter…he’s overcome with grief. He’s overcome with grief because Annalise reminds him so much of his late wife, the beautiful and beloved Queen Adelaide. Adelaide was a loving wife, she was a caring queen and most importantly, in the days following Anna’s birth…Addie was good mother. I miss her…I would do anything to get her back.

            “She needs a mother.” Edward jumps in shock and sighs as he sees it’s only his royal advisor Cynthia. Cynthia makes her way to the balcony’s edge and peers down at Annalise playing in the meadow, by now the child has made herself a crown of flowers.

“I know she does Cynthia…but who…what princess would want to raise a child?”

“I know a few.'

“No, Cynthia. I think Annalise will be fine.” Cynthia frowns and crosses her arms over her chest. Edward could be stubborn sometimes and he certainly didn’t like to listen. But nevertheless, he did because Cynthia was a good advisor and she saw things that Edward would ignore.

“Edward, she’s five. She needs a mother. I propose a contest.”

“A contest? Of what sorts? Why not a ball? I could meet lovely princesses at a ball.”

“The contest would compose of four contestants of your choosing. The four competitors would each get a week with Annalise. At the end of their week with her…all four will gather…they’ll all gather in their wedding dresses and at the wedding…Annalise will decide.”

“Why can’t I decide? She’ll be my wife…”

“Children are better at making decisions because you can’t lie to a child. Anyway, you could pick someone Annalise doesn’t like. Trust me, let Anna decide. After all, she is getting a mother.”

Edward frowns and wants to further argue with his advisor. He’s glad he chose a woman advisor, women aren’t easily inclined to give up or give in.

“Fine, I’ll be in the throne room. You can write the decree and I shall sign. Will you fill in Anna for me?”

“I think…it’s best to start the competition and let it begin…”

Edward doesn’t say anything to respond to Cynthia. He just glances at his little girl laughing in the meadow, playing…being innocent and he thinks about Adelaide…his Addie. His wife, his love, his daughter’s mother. Forgive me Addie, I think it’s best that our daughter has a mother who loves her…you’re never coming back and our child needs to be raised. She’s so much like you…I trust her innocent soul to decide on a queen, on a wife and on a mother for herself.
