Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there was a castle in a kingdom. There lived King Cole, Queen Tremaine, and a maid. The maid's name was Lavender. She was the only maid who managed all the chores, duties and services in the castle all by herself.
Lavender was sweet, kind and a friend to everyone, but she had a secret that she didn’t tell anyone. She had a special bracelet! The bracelet helped Lavender to fly, to disappear and appear somewhere else, and it did everything Lavender needed it to do!
One day King Cole decided to host a feast and invite many friends. King Cole said, “The feast will be on Saturday at noon”. Queen Tremaine ordered Lavender to do all the necessary arrangements. “Of course your majesty,” said Lavender with joy.
Queen Tremaine noticed something was special about Lavender. Queen Tremaine had been spying on Lavender and came to learn about her special bracelet. Since Queen Tremaine already had everything in the world and was always desiring more, she wanted the bracelet for herself and the special powers! Queen Tremaine wanted more control. Little did Queen Tremaine know, the special bracelet detected kindness and honesty in people. The special bracelet only worked for Lavender because of her nice character.
Friday night when Lavender was sleeping, Queen Tremaine went in her room and stole Lavender’s bracelet. “Now I have power”, said Queen Tremaine after leaving the room. When Lavender woke up, she noticed her bracelet missing! “Oh no! I must find my bracelet before the feast!”
Lavender looked in all the rooms, in the hallways in the castle towers even in the courtyard. It was almost noon now and people started arriving for the feast. Lavender was doomed. There was no food ready, no decorations, and dust everywhere.
Meanwhile, Queen Tremaine was getting dressed. She put on the special bracelet. As soon as she did, it became black and rusty! Queen Tremaine didn’t care as long as it still worked. Queen Tremaine went downstairs and saw that nothing was done. The floors weren’t cleaned, no food was on the table, and the place looked drab. Queen Tremaine spoke to the bracelet commanding it to get the feast organized. People were pouring in. Queen Tremaine kept on commanding and ordering, but nothing happened.
Lavender looked at Queen Tremaine and saw the bracelet. “YOU took my bracelet!” said Lavender. “Of course I took your bracelet. I want more power!” said the Queen.
The guests were shocked at the disorganized event. King Cole walked in and bellowed at Lavender. “ Lavender!” King Cole thundered. “Where is the food?” Everyone was talking and whispering. The guests were upset and horrified with King Cole and Queen Tremaine. They were hungry and wanted entertainment!
Lavender pleaded with Queen Tremaine. “Please your majesty, return the bracelet to me and everything will be under control and no one will remember this chaos!”
King Cole thundered at Queen Tremaine. “We need to get rid of Lavender, she has not done her duties today!”
Queen Tremaine realized her empire will fall apart without Lavender and her special bracelet, which is the reason everything ran smoothly day by day.
Queen Tremaine gave the bracelet back to Lavender. The bracelet sparkled and shined. The floors sparkled again. There was food on the table. People forgot what happened and they couldn’t believe their eyes! There were cupcakes, cakes, croissants, candy, caramel apples etc…
Queen Tremaine realized never to steal someone else’s belongings. She realized how valuable Lavender was to her castle, and let her be. But most of all, she realized that the most special thing about Lavender was not her bracelet, but her good character and manners!
