Chapter 1 Captured By Trolls...
Once upon a time, long ago, there lived young, handsome, prince of a small kingdom. This kingdom was small because it was right in the middle of a forest filled with trolls. Luckily for this kingdom, it was protected by a magical enchantment that kept the trolls away from the people of the kingdom. However, it was difficult for outsiders to visit the kingdom because of the treacherous journey through the troll infested forest.
Now, the prince of this kingdom was named William and he had become very accustomed to doing anything he wanted, and he really didn't like to take advice from anyone. Once, When William was young, he was warned by his parents to stay away from the castle moat. Wouldn’t you just know it? That was the first place he went, and he was almost eaten by a big green crocodile. Another time, when he was older, he had been warned to keep off of the roof. He immediately climbed up the side of the castle and he almost fell into a chimney.
One day his father said, “William, I know that you are an adult now but I also know that you always do the opposite of what I tell you. This time please listen to me because I know better than you. Do not go into the forest today. The king of the trolls will be looking for slaves.”
