Firefly LFFWS Voter Favorite, Challenge 2 Round 3

River never wanted to play princess with the other little girls. She refused the designation: she would never be a helpless figure, waiting behind crenellated walls for a knight in shining armor.

She never expected the prick of the spindle in her father's callused hand, never looked for poison in the apples her mother served.

*Doctor, doctor, behind the wall*
*Who's the smartest one of all?*

She has become the girl in the tower; she cannot rescue herself. She has but one hope left, words woven into letters like a ladder of hair.

Sooner or later, her brother will come.
