"The Bored Prince"[1] (退屈な王子 (たいくつなおうじ) Taikutsuna Ōji) is a short story written and illustrated by Yoko Kamio. It was published in the fan book, Hana Yori Dango FF, on October 24, 2003. The story is the first to feature Rui Hanazawa as the main character, but has nothing to do with the plot of Boys Over Flowers.

In Rui's dream, he is a prince who is constantly bored, despite his friends and servants attempts to entertain him. Life changes when he befriends a frog, who use to be human.

Plot

Once upon a time, lived a prince named Louis Wiesel Hana (Rui Hanazawa). He spends his time either asleep or in boredom. None of his servants (Shigeru Okawahara, Sakurako Sanjo, and Kazuya Aoike) can entertain him, while other princes (Akira Mimasaka, Sojiro Nishikado, and Tsukasa Domyoji) try to wake him up to no avail.

One day on the night of the full moon, he hears a noise coming from outside. The prince finds a frog (Tsukushi Makino) stuck to his window. His daily boredom goes away as him and the frog become friends. He thinks the fun will last forever, until the frog confesses that she is actually a human. The frog informs him that a witch cursed and she needs to find three item to become human again. In a strange language, the frog lists the three items though the prince cannot understand.

Tsukushi Makino calls out Rui Hanazawa's name, causing him to wake up from his dream, before he learns what the items are. She tells him he will catch a cold if sleeps in strange places. He informs her that he is use to it, and calls her "Human". Tsukushi questions him, which he replies with "you're similar to a frog".
