Rapunzel

“Throw down your hair!”

Rapunzel grabbed her binoculars; studied the Prince.

“We shall marry; have children!  You’ll cook and clean!  We’ll be happy!”

“I’m good.”  Smiling, Rapunzel stepped away from the tower window.

*Shakes head* foolish man. If he'd kept quiet of the cooking and cleaning MAYBE she would have ventured forth.

Loved it

33 words... and you got the job done with your traditional last line kicker...Looks like you are going after the female vote......How about some equal time for the other half?? I guess that WOULD be a challange.
