A long time ago in the kingdom of Harve, a silversmith molded a beautiful silver spoon for the lovely Princess Laylah, daughter of the King of Harve. When the King's wizard saw the spoon, he placed a secret spell upon it which made the spoon come to life. The wizard assured everyone that the power of the spoon would come alive only for good deeds. The King's servants had never seen anything as beautiful as this and knew it would be the perfect gift. It was wrapped beautifully and placed at the head table. Princess Laylah was mostly locked away in the palace by the King to protect her from an evil wizard who had vowed to make her his own. When she descended the stairway that evening, she could feel the love of the people. Princess Laylah loved the gift her father gave her and kept the spoon on a shelf at the entrance of the castle as a reminder of the party and the love of the people.
