Once upon a time, there was a princess who lived in a tall tower in the forest. This was not as bad as it sounds as she had WiFi access.

Using her internet, the princess discovered how she had been stolen away from the king and queen by an evil witch. She sent the palace an email detailing where she was, and turned on geotagging too.

Before long, the palace guard had surrounded the tower and rescued the princess, taking her home.

A handsome prince rode past the tower. He lingered momentarily, sure that something significant was meant to happen…

    Made me smirk. Nice retelling and excellent social commentary outlining the trappings of our time.
