The Princess Who Married the Frog | McKenzie Richardson

He was awfully bossy for a frog.

“Let me eat from your plate.”

“Let me drink from your cup.”

“Let me sleep on your pillow or I’ll complain to your father.”

So sick was I of hearing his croaking frog-voice that I threw him across the room. Then poof, he was a prince.

Later renditions of our “romance” will say I kissed him. Don’t believe those.

He never said why he’d been cursed, just declared we’d wed and live happily ever after. But I am not a princess to be bossed around.

Perhaps another witch would do me a favor.
