As the shadows crossed the spooky lake, the Swan Princess began to change but not into the usual swan. Her gown turned black and so did her hair, and her dancing became sadder. Dark dust came spluttering out of her hand as she went to look at herself in the lake. She felt a huge cold breeze as she stared. It began to snow, the lake froze and the air became so cold it was unbreathable.
As morning came it was all the same, well apart from the frozen dark figure. It was the swan's dark side.
