    Summary

    “But hold me fast, and fear me not,” whispered Edward, pleadingly, his fingers tightening urgently around Oswald's wrists, “and I'll do you no harm. What am I?”

    “Ed?” Oswald gasped, disbelieving, tearing his eyes away from Kathryn. “That's—”

    “A riddle, from the sound of things,” said Kathryn. “And it did you all the harm in the world.”

    But how about a little change up? Like a Pig Prince for instance? And he had to deal with a rather extra prince who wouldn't take "no thank you" for an answer?

    A simple retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. It has a bit of a twist, written for H.I.A.T.U.Story over on Tumblr. This story was a bit out of my element, hope you like it anyways. Maybe riddled with mistakes due to my rush to get it submitted in time, I apologize about that in advance.

    Summary

    The only Seafolk allowed near the surface were the stealthiest, strongest warriors. Vex'ahlia was neither of those, so she only dreamed of being allowed near it. When her brother gains permission to go to the surface, he promises to take her so she could realize her lifelong dream, unbeknownst to the fact that she had been there once before.

    Percival had never felt so lonely. Ever since the death of his family, the pressures of the Council for him to wed and produce an heir are growing, and his only relief from the strains of leadership are his nightly walks on the beach near Whitestone Castle, hoping to sight the beautiful mermaid he helped one night years before.

    Above the water for the second time, Vex'ahlia can't help but sing, ignorant of the human Prince nearby.
