Prompt: The Princess and the Pea by Edmund Dulac

Here's my entry (I used the image, not the title):

She thought that the higher up she slept, the closer she was to the sky, and so the closer she would be to him. To freedom. But he never came.

Not during the endless hours she stared out the window wishing to be anyone, anywhere other than there. Not while she lay awake in the dark, waiting. Not even in her dreams.

She’d heard her maids say it more than once. There was a boy in the village with wings of paper and silk. At night he flew, like a ghost or faerie, over the high walls of the palace gardens. Inside, he plucked the best fruits, liberated the livestock, and once, drank the King’s wine.

But never, ever, (no matter how much she wished) did he fly up to the tower and steal the King’s daughter. Not even he was brave enough for that.
