This is a little story I've had in the background for a while now.
It's a "Disney"-esque story called "Ice Dream". Seen here is main character Kai in both his real world form, and his dream world form.
"Ice Dream" was my idea to create both a 'Disney' story with the main focus on the "Prince", and to create a 'Disney' protagonist with a disability.
Kai is an extraordinary teenager who develops the dream of becoming a champion figure skater after his lifelong best friend Avery inspires him . Born with an illness that leaves his bones fragile, Kai wishes to have an expensive operation that will make his body strong enough to allow him to be normal. Unfortunaltely Kai's mother simply can't afford it right now. As a compromise, Kai agrees to undergo an experimental gene therapy treatment that will help him be able to skate- The only catch is that he must take the medication every single day without missing a single dose. Although he has become strong enough to start training, Kai and his single mother finds themselves out of luck in finding a teacher willing to take him on because of him still being a 'high-risk' for injuring himself. He meets world famous Olympic champion skater Arista Evangeline at one of Avery's competitions, and she agrees to take on the challenge of training Kai, despite the danger of him injuring himself. In time, Kai becomes extremely attached to Arista, even forgetting about his best friend. Mistakenly, Arista calls Kai her 'little Prince" and even gives him a silver snowflake pendant as a reward for his achievements. Kai also becomes careless in taking his medication, feeling as if he has become so strong, he no longer needs it. His mother takes notice of this far too late.
At his first competition, Kai is ready to confess his love to Arista, but she must let him down, as it would never be possible for them to be together. Kai is devastated, and before Avery or his mother can stop him from taking to the ice, Kai falls hard and injures himself badly. At the hospital, Kai's mother sends Arista away, and Kai is left to fall into a coma.
In his dreams, he imagines that he is older, and that he is a skater in a fictional kingdom, vying for the heart of the princess in an ice dance competition. The only problem is that he has been born with a 'curse'- the same illness as in reality. Luckilly in his dream, after a prayer from his mother, an Ice Witch has given him an enchanted snowflake encased in crystal that he must wear at all times to protect him. Before he is prepared to make the journey to the competition, his magical amulet is stolen by a manifestation of his fears- a crystal dragon sorcerer named Arcana, who is looking to steal the heart of the princess for his own greed. Kai now must overcome both his 'curse' and his 'fears' to win back what is rightfully his!
i can't give away the entire story, as I am planning to release it as a short childrens' storybook series one day. I hope that everyone enjoys this sneak peak of the main character Kai!
