The Runaway Princess: Episode Two
"Well, better get ready. Mom's gonna have my head if I'm late to my salon appointment."
"All right, one pair of lacy underpants comin' right up."
"And just for good measure, equally lacy bloomers."
"Now just in case my legs weren't covered enough. we're going to add a petticoat. Fantastic."
"I feel like a penguin."
I put my shoes on next, because I knew there was no chance of getting them on under everything else.
Then it was time for the dress.
I stepped into it.
As soon as it was on, I felt better than I had in ages. I felt able to do anything, to be anything. I suddenly knew that I didn't have to be Princess Allison Elizabeth Holly Sophia Charlotte the First. I could just be Ali.
I felt ready to change the world.
