The dragon lay motionless, his last smoky breath escaping with a sigh as Prince Charming removed his sword. He climbed the stairs of the tower, slashing at vines as he went until at last he reached the top. He opened the heavy oak door and tiptoed to the side of the bed at the center of the room, but no one was there.
 "Were you looking for me?" the princess closed the door with a smile. "It never occurred to you that all that was keeping me in, not keeping you out, did it?"
