This is the scene where the two girls meet for the first time.
Royals wore the loveliest perfumes in Windym. Cianna had memorized the scent of every perfume ever made since she’d moved in above the perfume shop. She took a big whiff of the odors in the consulting room. She smiled. “It’s faint now, but Polly is wearing Unicornia,” Cianna said. “It’s a new perfume, just invented. It’s going to be popular this summer.”
“Especially with Polly wearing it,” Mia agreed. “Oh my goodness,” she gasped, “the princess left her riding gloves.” Mia lifted the gloves off the chair. Her stomach dropped. Would she be blamed for the gloves being left behind? “Maybe the princess is still outside,” Mia yelped.
Just then, Polly walked back into the Pet Palace looking for her gloves.
Polly saw the two friends through the glass room and her mouth fell open when she saw Cianna’s dark red hair.
Mia saw the princess staring at them. Oh no, thought Mia, she sees me holding the gloves. She thinks I stole them. Mia bit her lip. “The princess is back,” she told Cianna. The two girls walked out of the glass room.
Polly rushed toward them.
“I’m so sorry, Your Highness, I just found them,” Mia stammered.
She bowed and held out the gloves.
Polly brushed past the receptionist and stood face to face with Cianna. “Your hair,” she said to Cianna, “your hair is red.”
Cianna froze as the princess inspected her hair. Polly twirled the long strands in her fingers. What is going on, wondered Cianna.
“It’s the perfect shade of red,” Polly noted. She stood back to back with Cianna. “You’re older than I am, but we’re about the same size.” Polly seemed to be talking to herself more than to Cianna. She grabbed Cianna’s chin and moved her face from side to side. “You’re pretty too. Can you dance?” Polly asked her.
