This story is included in the collection Thrice Upon a Time
Thrice upon a time I rescued a princess from a tower. It goes with being a prince, I suppose. I'd booked my companion, Pat, through the website www. trusty-sidekicks-R-us.com, and I'd had my doubts at first -- he seemed a bit puny for dragon-hunting, but he was well very prepared. He'd brought along his own horse, and a sheep, and accurate satellite co-ordinates on the castle, so we found it after a mere week.
