This story begins when a princess wakes up from her slumber after a day of picking fruits and smelling flowers. She is in trouble after falling into a dark, sleep spell. She finds herself captive, locked away in a room in a tower. She has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom, as her father is king of the land.
In her mind she believes an army or hero will find her, so she knows she can probably wait, still instead of waiting for an indeterminate time or undefined hero, she decides she is going to be her own hero, she takes a deep breath, confronts herself and strategizes.
