Like many girls, my childhood was marked by a princess obsession. Even before I knew how to read, I pored over Trina Schart Hyman's illustrations in Rapunzel and Dorothée Duntze's in The Twelve Dancing Princesses. My favorite princess of all was Snow White, and I proved my devotion by rewatching Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on VHS every day for a year. (Sorry, Mama.) Disney's Sno… (more)

"From now on all giants should elope," Cyril challenged. "You'll see what the heart loves."
From behind me, Hattie shrilled, "Go to your room this instant. I command you."
I ignored her, but Char pulled away.
"Why won't you marry me? Why not, if you love me?"
"I'm cursed. You wouldn't be safe if I were your wife." What was I saying? I hadn't told anyone about the curse since I was eight. Mother had forbidden it. Had someone told me to?
No one had. Then why....
My thoughts wouldn't settle.
"The meaning, mama is that Ella does whatever she is told.I don't know why, but she does."
" You mean she would have listened to me too?" Olive said.
" Clap your hands three times Ella." Mum Olga commanded. I clutched my skirt and stiffened my hands at my side.
" It will take a moment." Hattie said. "She tries not to. See how red her face is?"
Impatience is not usually my weakness. But your letters torment me. They are playful, interesting, thoughtful, and (occasionally) serious. I'm overjoyed to receive them, yet they bring misery. What I really long to know you do not tell: what you feel, although I've given you hints by the score of my regard. You like me. You wouldn't waste time or paper on a being you didn't like. But I think I've loved you since we met at your mother's funeral. I want to be with you forever and beyond, but you write that you are too young to marry or too old or too short or too hungry. You would charm Father, and Mother too. They would be yours completely. What a beautiful bride you'll be, whomever you marry at whatever age. Today I cannot write of Ayortha or my doings or anything. I can only post this and wait. Love (it is such a relief to pen the word!), love, love-- Char
