“… And so, the dashing and brave prince climbed up the wall. He fought off every foe gallantly.
The pretty princess was anxiously waiting at the top of the tower, afraid that if she opened the window to see, her worst dream would come true.
But the prince rushed to her, unscathed, freed her from the confines of the tower and took her back to the kingdom.
And they lived happily ever after. The End.”
“What? That’s it?” she asked.
“That’s the end of the story, sweetie. Didn’t you like it?”
“No I did not!” she said defiantly.
“I think that the princess was a BIG BORE! She showed no bravery at all!
The window was right there wasn’t it? She kept staring out of it all the time, watching the roses, counting her misfortunes, crying and feeling helpless.
Well, why didn’t she open the window or even break it and get out? Why did she wait for that stupid prince?”
“I hated this story! I don’t want to hear stories about pretty but stupid girls ever again!”
