The Princess of the Blue lotus

Once upon a time there lived a king who was a great warrior and was loved by people living in his kingdom of Cheruba. He was kind to the poor and was known to give justice to those in need. The king had a lovely daughter named Kiara, who was the apple of his eye. She was very beautiful and she had long golden hair. Her face was charming and she had the most melodious voice in this world. She was as humble and kind as her father.
Zakura was an evil magician who also lived in kingdom of Cheruba. He had his eyes set on the king's lovely daughter and also his rich kingdom. He asked the king several times to allow him to marry princess Kiara. The king was wise enough to know about the evil thoughts of magician Zakura. He was sure that the magician would never keep his daughter happy. Also, his cruelty would make the kingdom suffer with misery and sorrow. So, the king insulted the magician and asked him to leave Cheruba forever.
The angry magician decided to take revenge against the king of Cheruba. He used his evil powers and turned the people of Cheruba into ice statues. Cheruba turned into a lifeless kingdom. Zakura then captured princess Kiara and took her seven seas across to the land of lost. He kept her imprisoned in huge castle. A big blue lotus flourished in a lake in the backyard of the castle. Zakura entrapped the princess in the big blue lotus. The castle had four huge doors and Zakura kept an elephant, a lion, a dragon and a demon as a guard to each door. The fifth door led to lake of blue lotus and the key to this door was tied to the neck of demon.
Many years passed but magician Zakura could not persuade the princess Kiara to marry him. Meanwhile, one day the prince of Belucha went for hunting in the jungle with his friends. He lost his way and he came across this huge castle in the land of lost. He wondered who could live in such a castle in the middle of a jungle, away from any human life. Just then he heard someone singing in the most melodious voice inside the castle. Enchanted, the prince went inside the castle and found a huge door in front of him guarded by an elephant. Using his skills and power, prince soon became the master of that elephant.
The prince went through the first door successfully and found a second door guarded by a ferocious lion. Safely siting on the elephant and using bow-arrow prince fought with lion and killed him. This way he could open the second door and saw the third door guarded by the dragon. Prince of Belucha was a skillful warrior and using his sword he fought with the dragon. After a long fight, the prince overpowered and tamed the dragon. This way he opened the third door of castle and went to the fourth door which was guarded by a deadly demon. Prince fought with the demon and commanded the dragon to shower fire balls on the demon. Prince then killed the demon and beheaded him.
Prince of Belucha found a key tied to the demon's neck. Taking the key he opened the unguarded fifth door of the castle. Beyond the fifth door, prince saw a beautiful lake in which a big blue lotus was floating. Entrapped in the lotus was a beautiful girl who was singing in a sweet voice. She was none other than the princess of the blue lotus, the princess Kiara of kingdom Cheruba. Prince swam at once and rescued princess Kiara. They both went to the kingdom of Cheruba. The almighty and fearless prince fought with the evil magician Zakura and killed him. As soon as Zakura died, the magical spell broke and kingdom of Cheruba came back to life again. People weren't ice statues anymore. King of cheruba was happy to see his beloved daughter Kiara sound and safe. With the blessings and love of the king, prince of Belucha and princess Kiara got married. And they happily lived forever.
And if we are lucky enough we might see a blue lotus blooming somewhere in the memory of their love.
