This is the story of a lonely princess who was very lonely. And a bad man was scaring her :(

 


Hello. My name is Nick. But you probably know me as Misterepicmann. Or Shirley. But that's a story for another time. I joined YouTube back in 2009 with no real expectations other than to be myself on camera. Right now I am pursuing a degree in cinematic arts at college and I certainly hope to use that knowledge to make movies one day (Spitting water at my roommate and riding a broom around the room doesn't count...lolz). I currently own a company called Lost Light Films which is my primary focus after school and I hope I can merge my efforts into that company once school is completed...if I actually pass.

 

Welcome to space. I'm Nick.
I'm Ian.
It's time for a story... which we did not have time to think of. Are you ready?
Mm Humm.
Once upon a time... there was a lonely princess.

Who are you?
I'm a lonely princess.
Why are you lonely?
I don't know, I just sit here and I get lonely.
What else, what else do you do when you're lonely?
Nothing really, I don't have friends. I just eat the cereal. Aaargg! What's your name? Why do you watch me eat cereal?
My name is Bruce.
Oh, hello Bruce. Do you want some of this cereal?
No, that's ok Lonely Princess, you can have it.
Thank you Bruce, you're very nice, wish I'd met you earlier.
You did.
Bruce, let me tell you something.
What's up?
Bruce, I'm dying.
What?
Slowly... because, because I'm lonely.
Then make some friends and you won't die.
Ah, good advice, Bruce. I'll do that. Ok.

Bruce.
Yes, princess.
Let's go on an adventure.
I've never gone on an adventure before.
Oh, never mind then. Bruce, are you sure you don't want some of the cereal? The cereal's so good!
Is it from California?
Ha ha ha. Bruce. Bruce.
Yeah, princess.
Listen to me.
I'm listening.
I need your help.
What do you need help with, Lonely Princess?
There's a weird guy that comes in my apartment every day. He comes in right around this time, actually.
Bralblrblarlb!

There is is, he's, that's him!
What's his name?
I don't know.
Did you ask him?
No.
Why don't you be friends with him?
Have you seen him? He scares me, Bruce. Bruce, by the way, have you tried this cereal?... Bruce, do you hear me? Bruce, answer me, Bruce.
Did you say something, princess?
Yes, I did.
What did you say?
I said I like the cereal.
Why do you like the cereal?
Never mind that, Bruce.

Anyways, back to this guy that pops in.
Bralblrblarlb!
There he is again, Bruce. Save me from this guy.
Princess?
Yes?
Do you wanna go on an adventure with me?
Yes! Let's go off together, Bruce.
OK.
Farewell!
Bralblrblarlb!
This cereal must come too.
We'll put it in the bag.
Ok! Good-bye!

The End.
What a fun story!
Mm, quite.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Good-night, ladies and gentlemen.
