“Kids, don’t go too far or you’ll be left behind.”

“Look! Is that where Rapunzel lives?” little Emily shrieked

She stared at the brick castle and wondered, “Who’s Rapunzel Emy?”

“Grandma. She’s the princess with a long, blond hair, who was trapped at the top of the castle. Prince Eric, her knight in shining armor, came to save her and climbed the castle using her hair.”

“That’s not true!” Harry opposed. “This place used to be Hotel Transylvania, built by the great Count Dracula. Legend says this served as a getaway for all the world’s monsters and every full moon a human sacrifice is served during the feast. The people would then hear Drac’s loud laugh– Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.”

She couldn’t help but chuckle on the kids’ wild imagination. With cheerful eyes she stared at the castle and reminisce the first time she laid her eyes on her better half.

“I tell you kids, nothing beats a great love story.”

…and she spent the next two hours telling a happily ever after story.
