Pgs. 1 & 2: Aisha’s father, King Teredor, presents her with a cake to celebrate meeting Nex, her new boyfriend. Nex tries to impress him and her mother, Queen Niobe, with a fancy cake cutting trick, but it goes embarrassingly wrong.
Niobe: Teredor, don’t be hard on him! Nex: What a disaster, Aisha! Aisha: Don’t beat yourself up about it, Nex… you just wanted to make a good impression! Nex: Now your dad hates me! Aisha: Nonsense! Once he gets to know you better, he’ll love you! Nex: If you say so…
Teredor: That boy is nothing but a blowhard! He’s not fit for our Aisha! Bloom: If I may, Your Majesty…. I, on the other hand, think they’re made for each other! Stella: They’re a fantastic couple! Niobe: You’re right! They seem so happy together! Teredor: But will he really be able to protect her when necessary? Or is this all for show? Aisha: Nex is not my bodyguard! We…we love each other! Nex: Wait a minute, Aisha! Your dad’s right, and I can prove my courage to him! Teredor: Well then, boy… tell me, have you ever heard of the legend of the Melusina? Nex: No, but I’m ready for anything! Who is this Melusina?
