To recap the past few months of history: Kelley, a farm girl with fiery red hair and the temper to match, was accosted by a hideous gnome and told that she was to become a Princess. As part of the Becoming, she would be unable to speak until the process was complete. We found that her step-mother was a piece of work and her father, kind and tenderhearted as he was, was powerless in the face of such cruelty. Kelley set out to make soap and after a number of disasters finally was able to create a batch that was not only safe to use, but also utterly divine. This was due entirely to a bottle of golden liquid suddenly appearing before her. Now she sits in the cellar, a prisoner of her step-mother. She has used this time to create a business plan for Soapies! (That name coming from Bronson, the gnome that accosted her so long ago and to whom she is promised in marriage. Really, if this isn’t making sense may I kindly suggest that you use the link above to visit the archives and get yourself up to speed? You’ll have a better understanding of how Soapies began and what Kelley has had to endure…)
So when we last left Kelley, she was busy attempting to create a logo. Suffice to say, this followed the same pattern as her attempt to create a business name. Bronson must have sensed this somehow because as she was busy working on a rather interesting rendition of a mermaid in a bathtub with hair that fell to the floor and became soap bubbles and piles of flowers, surrounded by woodland creatures and adoring townfolk – he appeared. Used to his sudden appearances by this time, Kelley barely flinched and instead just blushed slightly as he stood looking at the image with a dismayed look upon his face.
With a sweep of his arm, the wall was cleared and then, as if he were in fast-forward, he quickly sketched here and there until voila! The logo was finished. Simple yet powerful. There stood Kelley – at least a charming image of her. A poised Princes with tiara and magic wand.
Kelley clapped her hands in excitement and turned to give Bronson a hug. But as was his pattern, he was already gone and Kelley was left alone again. Except… what was this? In the center of the floor was a…
Whoops! Totally out of time. Hate when that happens!
