Once upon a time, in a faraway land, lived a wealthy princess who bathed in pots of shimmering liquid gold.
She had no friends nor anyone she could call her own as people with eyes only on her abundant riches would come to befriend her.
One day, after surviving several heartaches, she realized its futile to wait for a mate, so she quit hoping and embraced her perpetual solitary state only to learn later that happiness which she was looking for in others was waiting inside her to be discovered.
