Just a lil something I wrote for my niece guess what her name is^^
Princess Kiah's bedtime
Princess Kiah lay awake , eyes wide in the darkness of her bedroom.. High
above her angels flew on a blue sky she couldn't see. But even with out the
lights she knew the sky was blue because that was her favorite color and it
simply 'was'. She wished it was day time so it wouldn't be so dark and so
she could see the blue sky overhead .But something else was odd, a small
difference that she couldn't put her finger on.
Princess Kiah sat up and propped her self with a large leopard print pillow
and cast her eyes around but she couldn't see a thing in the dark. This
upset her because her nanny knew not to turn out the lights. So taking a
deep breath the little princess called out to her nanny ,the little old
woman with the wrinkled face would run in and see to her at once .but no
one came .This made the princess sad. She folded her arms across her chest
and tried to hold back tears as the darkness closed in around her.
Suddenly there came a noise, it wasn't to loud a noise but just loud enough
to scare a little girl alone in the dark. A soft ,thump thudding sound
like footfalls from far away. This frightened Princess Kiah and she cried
out even louder this time
"Nanny! Nanny! Nannyyy!!" and she waited ,but still there was no answer.
Once again the little princess took a deep breath ,but instead of screaming
she held it in and tried to calm herself the way Nanny had taught her.
"one ,two three." she counted ,but then again came the noise ,the dull thud
thudding from somewhere inside her room. Kiah stopped counting at eleven
.it could have been because she was afraid ,but most likely because she
didn't quite remember what came after that odd number.
She looked around again and this time she noticed a shaft of light from her
window and saw the moon large and bright climbing the balustrade of her
balcony. Smiling to herself she ran towards it banishing the dark shadows
from her mind as she drew back the lace curtains and greeted the moon.
"Hello moon." She said quite loudly ,pressing her little face against the
"Hello Princess Kiah " Came a familiar voice from the sky.
"Moon?" the little girl asked on tiptoes so she could see better over the
"Oh, nooo sweet heart .Its only me" Said Nanny ,her wizened old face peered
down at Kiah through the glass. "Could you open the door and let an old
lady in out the cold dearest?"
The little Princess was overjoyed as she dragged the little blue chair from
her vanity and stood on it to unlatch the door.
"What are you doing out there Nanny ?" Kiah asked hugging tightly to the
old woman. "Watching the moon rise Little One ,but it seems the wind was
against me and closed the door so I couldn't get in. I've been knocking
ever sense but everyone has gone to bed"
"It is bedtime silly." the princess smiled up at her Nanny lovingly.
"Yes ,I suppose it is ." was Nanny's answer as she scooped the child into
her arms and carried her off to bed. Where she tucked the princess in and
placed a sweet kiss on her forehead.
Princess Kiah yawned deeply and snuggled into her pillow. Eyes half closed
she peered up at the angels in their blue sky and thought. 'You may have
your blue sky but I have the moon and a Nanny who loves me.'
