Apples of Gold
A very poor orphan boy, in medieval times, makes himself even poorer by giving away his income, keeping only what he himself needs for food -then why is he being 'stalked'. A man wearing the clothes of a nobleman has been following him around for over a week. '
With the obvious theme of 'Rags to Riches', this story has everything that most fairy-tales have, but the plots and sub-plots are the essence of reality with no magic to help this boy along his way... there is even a 'Cinderella' style ball, a prince and a lovely lady; villains and heroes... to say too much more would be to use 'spoilers'.
Rags, Riches, Royalty, Mystery and Mahem with love that wins through in the end of course.
