Once upon a time in a castle in Candyland, there lived a unicorn named Sparkles. Sparkles belonged to the Princess Victoria. Sparkles had a gold horn, a light purple mane and tail, and light pink wings.

Sparkles was a lot of fun. She played games with Princess Victoria when Princess Victoria got bored. Sometimes, when Princess Victoria got really bored, Sparkles would take her flying on her back. Princess Victoria liked to go to Florida to see Disney World.

There were other Princesses there that she could play with and eat ice cream. Princess Victoria loved strawberry ice cream. She shared her ice cream with Sparkles. Sparkles was happy to eat strawberry ice cream.

Princess Victoria asked the princesses to come back to Candyland castle and have a sleep over. They said ‘Yes!’

They watched movies. They loved Beauty and the Beast. While they were watching movies, Sparkles watched with them. She liked watching movies. She didn’t mind sharing her princess with the other princesses. And they made blueberry cupcakes! Sparkles got to eat one! And she loved it!

Sparkles took a nap after eating her cupcake. Princess Victoria laid down with her. All the Princesses laid down too. It was the best sleepover ever!
