|“||A mysterious book received from a boy in white clothes.||”|
Unlike the other storybooks, the text in the The Little Princess is not all there to begin with. When Jennifer first receives the book, all the pages are blank, save for the cover. However, when she is off the bus and examines the book again, she can read the first part of the story. As the game progresses, more of the story is revealed, little by little.This storybook is also the only one to re-tell the overall plot of Rule of Rose, while the others just seem to foreshadow the upcoming events of a single-game chapter.
Once upon a time, there was a precious little girl.
Her friend, the Princess of the Red Rose, was always at her side.
Then one day, her mummy and daddy died suddenly.
The princess too disappeared, leaving the girl all alone.
And the poor little girl was sent away to a strange house.
At her new home, the Aristocrat Club lived by the Rule of Rose.
But the girl found herself very much alone, until she discovered a wonderful new friend.
The girl and her companion obeyed the Rule of Rose.
For in the Aristocrat Club the Rule of Rose was absolute, as was the word of the Princess of the Red Rose.
The girl obeyed the Rule of Rose, but the Countess refused to like her.
The girl obeyed the Rule of Rose, but the Baroness punished her still.
The girl obeyed the Rule of Rose, but the Duchess taunted her anew.
And yet, the girl and her friend were still faithful to the Rule of Rose.
The Princess of the Red Rose found this all very dull.
And so, she issued a Rule of Rose for the final time.
The girl was to sacrifice her very special friend.
And when she did, she became a princess.
A lonely little Princess, burdened by the Rule of Rose.
The woeful Princess put her memories under lock and key,
forever and ever.
