A Bid for Freedom by Dawn Knox, Grape Escape Cocktail

 Rapunzel studied the complicated drawings the prince had brought to her tower-top prison. ‘I must admit, I was hoping for a long ladder.’

The prince nodded. ‘Trust me, this is the best option. I’ve explored all possibilities and the tower’s too tall for a ladder. A rope ladder might be a possibility, but it breaches several health and safety regulations.’

‘So, I climb out of the window into your contraption. Sit on a small mat and then slide to the bottom?’

‘Exactly. And afterwards, we’ll dismantle it and sell off the design. I’m thinking of calling it a “Helter Skelter”.’
