In a land far, far away, there was a kingdom called McQueen. Its king Alexander was looking for someone special to share his life with. He sent thousands of special packages to shops all over his realm, each sealed with red wax and stamped with a mark of his initials. “If you follow the instructions inside and you could become the King’s special someone”, read the box.

Years had passed and no one ever became the lonely king’s special someone. The packages were becoming scarce. Greedy people put their packages in auction houses at ridiculous starting prices. One day, Victoria found an unopened package at a shop that few people visited. She brought it home, and eagerly opened the beautiful package. She found a perfume bottle inside that looked like a quartered small cantaloupe. “Spray it, and come to my castle. If I can smell you, you will be my destined wife.” Victoria sprayed it all over her body like a crazy bee. “This scent is not that special. It smells like any other spicy orientals that I’ve owned,” she thought. Nevertheless, Victoria set off her journal to meet the king to try her luck. An hour later, she reached the castle gate. There was a notice and it read, “King Alexander has a massive windfall, and he is away for vacation.” Frustrated, and just before Victoria turned around, she smelled her skin again, but couldn’t detect a trace of the perfume, except her own B.O. ~The End~
