in the tower
the girl sits
pondering her thoughts
wondering why
in her fairytale
a prince hasn’t come yet
and saved her from her:
messed up family consisting of:
a socially inept brother
a wickedly wicked mother
a father; if you can call him that.
and thinking of why her prince hasn’t come may be because:
she was grounded from social events i.e the ball
she doesn’t even know anyone that can be considered a prince.
in her room
the girl sits
pondering her thoughts
wondering why
in her life
the boy hasn’t come yet
and saved her from:
messed up family consisting of:
a socially inept brother
a wickedly wicked mother
a father; if you can call him that.
and thinking why the boy hasn’t come yet
possible reasons:
she was grounded from all social events i.e the movies
she doesn’t even think her boy knows she exists.

    wow. when i first read that i just skimmed it and I thought you’d written the same thing twice. :] but I love the subtle differences between each interlocking story. i feel for both the girl and the princess. I’ve felt like that before.

    Cute, and kudos on a nice use of parallelism. I’m pretty sure that’s a word anyway. Odds are the boy is an immature doofus—most of us are. Maybe by the time he grows out of it, the girl won’t be grounded. Kind of better to wait anyway.
