“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke,
Letters to a Young Poet
i am offically a loner, i mean what kind of girl spends her summer in sunny australia, cooped up in a fish tank, talking to swimming mammals. i mean i could be sitting in the sun, tanning on the beachm, while a lifegaurd rubs sunscreen on my back, but no, instead i'm feeding dead fish to sea otters, and they don't make good company. i've been here for three weeks and the only people i've met are the staff, who know me as hannah, the head scientist's daughter. well, this summer goes to the fish.
Here it goes, I guess this is the story of a group of friends, enemies, loves, everyone basically. This Story is about how some days feel like magic, while others convince you that you'll never ever be whole again. in the end of it all, its about the stage before adulthood and after childhood. This is the In between.
Life changes in an instant. In an instant my whole life was changed. I went from Mari, the free-spirited friend with almost no life, to Princessa Mariella, heir to the throne of Sicily. I know what you’re thinking: isn’t Sicily part of Italy. Not anymore. Apparently, there was a whole revolution thingy and suddenly it’s a whole new country! And my family was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. I knew my Grandmother was from High Class Sicilian blood, but I had no idea it was this…fancy. So what happens when a normal, well mostly normal girl, goes from being middle class to royal class? A whole lot of shit happens.
