Happily Ever After; Part 4

Trifextra Weekend Challenge; Week Fifty-seven

For the weekend challenge we're asking for exactly thirty-three words written in first person narrative. Have fun with it and we'll meet you back here on 3/3! - 


I'm trying something a little...well, crazy here this week.  I have been writing and linking up to several prompts every week.  I've combined prompts and I've written separate stories to the individual prompts.  This week my goal is to write one story, and split it into parts.  Each part fitting one of the prompts I use.  It's my hope that each part stands alone, yet makes one understandable tale all together.
Part one is here  Part two is here and Part three is here





I didn't realize how much a princess has to do.
Mediate disputes.
Attend parties, host dinners.  
And all the while, I'm expected to look like a princess!

I miss being a shepherd's daughter.

  2. I like this,well written:-)And can understand her feeling nostalgic-not so easy to transcend the gulf between two entirely opposite social strata.

  4. I've enjoyed the tale of these two over the last few weeks. Would LOVE to see the idea expanded outside of the lines of the writing prompts!

  5. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, that is one of life's great truisms. Nice job on this week's prompt.

  8. Princess would definitely be one of those jobs that look better on paper. The shepherd's daughter life for me too!

    Fun little piece!
