A young prince crippled by a witch—

The day Fredrico watches his cruel family mourn his false death and announce to the kingdom their cursed prince has died, is the day he truly embraces his new life and new name Rumplestiltskin.  How could he be known by anything else? —His skin is completely rumpled and stilted now.   He hides away from the king and queen and grows up as a crippled servant in the castle.  

Years later, his younger brother, Marcus, becomes king and humors Aubrynn’s father when he boasts that his daughter can turn straw into gold.  Intrigued Marcus locks the distraught maiden in a tower and declares to the kingdom that if she can transform the straw, he will marry her, but if she cannot he will kill her father.  

Rumplestiltskin is determined to help Aubrynn save her father and marry the king.  Now, if only he can remember to keep his real identity a secret and not fall in love with her himself…
Awe, so heartbreaking, poor little boy! What's this about this series of fairytales being stolen? Plagerized? Shame if it's true!
@GrneyedIrishrose if it was totally edited, the book would have to be removed. just enjoy the story
hence his name. It makes me sad about how inconsiderate people are about other people's feelings and they just say stuff without thinking
Its only chapter 2 and I'm already crying :'( I'm going to vote tomorrow :)
Definitely gonna have to read the rest of this now. Cant wait to see why an evil witch cares about an evil king. Excellent start! :)
