On the morning of her fifteenth birthday, the Princess awoke
early -- excited to be another year older. She was up so early in the
morning, that she realized everyone else still slept. The Princess roamed
through the halls trying to keep herself occupied until the rest of the castle
awoke. She wandered about the whole place, looking at rooms and halls as
she pleased and at last she came to an old tower. She climbed the narrow,
winding staircase and reached a little door. A rusty key was sticking in
the lock and when she turned it, the door flew open.
