The evil fox had a chocolate brown nose and eyes as black as coal. He had dark red fur and a long tail. He took Strawberry and said evilly,
“I have found myself a delicious meal.” Then, he took off with Strawberry.
Blueberry was furious! He quickly grabbed a shield and a sword and ran after the Fox. During his quest, Blueberry forgot to bring a map, and so he wandered aimlessly around. As he was wandering, he ran into a lonely traveller on a mighty horse.
“Where are you heading to, hedgehog?” the lonely traveller asked.
“To find my princess, the love of my life,” Blueberry said boldly.
The lonely traveller's eyes lit up. He had always wanted to save a princess. He agreed to help so they journeyed together to find the evil fox's den.
The journey to find the Fox was a dangerous one. They faced booby traps that blocked their way. He expertly
dodged the traps but sadly, the sword did not. Smash! It shattered into a million pieces. Miserably, they kept on their mission to save the princess.
When they finally found and entered the fox's hidden den, the gates closed shut behind them. Suddenly, an army of
slithering snakes attacked Blueberry.
“Help!” Blueberry cried, but his companions were captured and cuffed with metal chainsby the Fox's army. They took the gang of intruders to the Throne Room.
The army marched with their prisoners. The evil Fox stood in front of them and declared, “Who dares enter my den?”
“I am the mighty Blueberry. I am accompanied by a traveller and his horse. Now, let my future wife go!” declared Blueberry.
Just then, a beautifully dressed hedgehog came down the stairs. She gasped, “Honey, what's going on down here?”
“There are intruders!” howled the evil fox. “Woo! A princess!” cheered the traveller.
“Dearest, I have come to save you!” cried Blueberry.
“Save me? I'm happy here with my honey bunch. Right, dear?” Strawberry asked the Fox adoringly.
“Right!” exclaimed the Fox.
“While you were gone, Mr. Fox locked me in the dungeon and I-I started to fall in love with him. We can still be friends, right Blueberry?” she murmured regretfully.
Blueberry stared at her in disbelief and yelled, “NO!” Suddenly, he grabbed her and dashed out. The Fox was stunned.
“After them!” roared the Fox. The army rushed out of the castle, but when they found them, none of them had to fight Blueberry because…
The princess had already tied him up with her hair band! “That's my girl!” whooped Mr. Fox. Meanwhile, the army carried the prince to the dungeon.
A week later, Princess Strawberry and Mr. Fox got married in a chapel on a hill next to the castle. Now, no one will crash their wedding because only the traveller, the horse and Mr. Fox's army knew about the wedding.
“Well, we sort of saved a princess!” said the traveller happily. As for the prince, he was placed in a locked dungeon for the rest of his life, where he mourned his beautiful princess Strawberry.
