Though am aged enough, a part of me will always be a child. When small, I enjoyed reading and watching fairy tales and I too wished for ” happily ever after” type life but that was just mere innocent kids thought because the world of reality is total different from those in stories. The world seemed so perfect always ending with a love’s kiss. Every girl has her favorite of all Disney princesses and mine is beautiful Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
