The Goose Girl
Once upon a time, there lived a lovely princess named Anidori Kiladra Talianna Isilee, or Ani, who was born in the kingdom of Kildenree. Ani had a strong relationship with her aunt. Little Ani spent the first years of her life listening to her aunt’s stories and learned how to converse with animals. As Ani grew up, she gradually learned of three important gifts:people-speaking, animalspeaking, and nature-speaking. When her aunt left from the kingdom, Ani’s mother, the queen, forbade Ani from getting near animals as she and the rest of Kildenree were terrified of animal-speakers.
Years passed by, Ani was struggling with her confidence as both Crown Princess and a future queen. Ani’s life that was always under her mother’s shadow made her feeling not confident to be the next queen. Things got worse, when Ani’s father passed away. At the funeral, the queen announced that her second child, Calib, would become the next ruler. Feeling confused, Ani tried to confront the queen. “Mother, I ask pardon for intruding so soon after the mourning period, but I must ask you about your statement some weeks ago,” said Ani.
“Yes, yes my child, about Calib. Sit down,” the queen asked Ani to sit and continued explaining, “You remember, five years ago we received a visit from the Prime minister of Bayern.” Ani nodded.
“Well actually, according to our tradition, if it has to be one of my kids to marry the prince of Bayern, it should be the third child, Napralina. But she is too young, and you, my dear Ani, you are different. After the trouble with your aunt, I’m worried that people would never trust you as the rumors of you being a animal-speaker have sunk too deep,” said the queen. Furious and upset, Ani had no other choice and was obliged to agree. Ani’s lady-in-waiting and best friend, Selia also convinced her to go to Bayern. Ani was crushed, but performed her duty and left Kildenree.
However, another bad thing happened. On the way to Bayern, Ani began to feel alienated from Selia. Selia later took Ani’s identity as the princess and seeized Ani’s power. After days wandering in the forest alone, Ani eventually stumbled on the house of Gilsa and her son, Finn. Gilsa told her, “Go to Bayern with Finn when the market opens.
If you are fortunate, you will meet the king in person.” Eventually, Ani and Finn went to the market to try to speak to the king. They met the king but she ended up telling him that she was new to the city and had nowhere to go. Hence, the king assigned her as a goose girl.
At first, as a goose girl, Ani struggled to connect with the other workers and the geese. However, this changed when she met Enna who worked with chickens, and Jok, an injured goose that she nursed back to health. Over time, Ani built friendships with the workers including with a man named Geric, who told her that he was the prince’s guard. One day, Ani heard a really bad news from Enna. “Ani, Kildanree plans on attacking Bayern so the king has decided to attack Kildenree first, “told Enna. Ani realized in horror that this must be Selia’s plan. If Bayern wiped out Kildanree, there would be no one who could prove her real identitybut she could not return to Kildanree.
The next morning, a group of thieves attacked the geese flock. Ani used her gift. She asked the wind to help and it responded by picking up a large amount of dirt and attacking the thieves. Because of her good deeds, Ani was hailed as a hero but was horrified to know that the king would invite her for a reward. As she was afraid to meet Seila in the kingdom, she decided to escape. She returned to Gilza’s house and by chance met Talone, her old guard. “I am so happy to find you alive,” said Ani relieved. “I am also very happy to finally meet you again, princess. And, I really want to help you get your identity back,” replied Talone.
Then, the two decided to convince the king of Ani’s true identity. They rode to the kingdom and managed to meet the old prime minister. Soon after confirming her identity, she was informed that the prince and Selia were about to get married by the lake.
Thus, Ani went to the lake to confront Selia. There she found out that the ‘guard’, Geric, was actually the crown prince. A terrifying battle between Selia and Ani could not be avoided. Luckily, before Selia could kill Ani, Geric intruded and helped Ani. Days later, after things quieted down, Ani was called to prove that Kildenree was not about to attack Bayern. She declared that she was the proof as the queen would never send her first born into an enemy camp before storming out. Geric praised her for ending the war before it started. At the end, Ani and Geric decided to get married. Geric took her to a celebration where she was introduced as the official crown princess.
