(Sorry it took so long!) Chapter Two: A Princess No More
آپ must be wondering...How did I get free? Being a princess isn't exactly something آپ can just stop doing; it's not a career آپ can quit when آپ don't want to continue with it. I had to take مزید drastic measures...
...but the dreams never ended. Now, in my dreams, the shapes grew clearer. Three large shapes in particular caught my eye, but I hardly had time to dwell on them. My mother was drilling me harder than ever!
Golden Shine: Silversheen, I am fed up with your daydreams! You're a princess! آپ must focus on your tasks!
That's when I finally lost my temper.
Silversheen: Maybe I'm not a princess, Mom! Have آپ ever considered that?
Golden: Silversheen! How dare you-
Silversheen: Every day, 24/7, you've been pushing me endlessly to be someone I'm not, and every day, I've just stayed silent and put up with it, but those days are over!
Golden: Control yourself, Silversheen! This is not how a princess should behave!
Silversheen: Then I don't want to be a princess any longer!!!

And so I ran...It seemed like forever at the time. My mother pursued me for a while, but when I reached the outskirts of Pridus, there was a bright silver flash and a shriek of surprise from behind me. I didn't dare stop to see what had happened. I kept running until my hooves ached too much, and then I took to the air.
I felt free as I soared through the sky, away from the pressure, away from the expectations. It felt like a huge weight being lifted off my back. I flew jubilantly for a long time, then I started to tire, and prepared to land in the town below.
It was a moment یا two before I realized where I was now-Glistenville, a much humbler town than Pridus, where my aunt and cousins lived. I would go to them. I knew they would welcome me with open hooves, but would things change once they learned the news of my escape? Would they shun me, like the ponies of Pridus were sure to do? Thoughts swirled around in my head as I made my way to the house of my aunt, Misty Eyes...
