The Princess in the Library


Once upon a time, in a land not-so-far away, there lived a princess.  Well, no.  She wasn’t a princess.

She was a librarian.

But, she felt like a princess, because she spent most of her time in a castle, by which she meant “library”.

And every day, the Prince – who wasn’t really a prince but an English Professor – would come to the library on his lunch break.  They would smile shyly at one another, but never talk.

One day, that changed.

‘Come fair maiden, take my hand,’ he whispered. ‘Let me show you a world beyond these shelves…’

    • Glad you liked it, Joy. I needed to write something a little more lighthearted after Soulless.

      No need to apologise. For a completely unplanned challenge – I literally decided on the first day to start it – I’m so surprised (and grateful) that others have joined in at all. 🙂
