Goose Girl

Themes: Betrayal | Regret | Silence

My servant has stolen my identity and she has warned me that she will kill me if I tell the truth. I am trying to stay hidden, but my hair is very thick and golden, and I can’t keep it under my hat! The wind knows who I am. Even Conrad the goose boy knows that I am not who I appear to be.

Who can I tell?

I’ve lost my power, my mother’s blood, and even my beloved horse has been killed. He hasn’t stopped speaking to me, but now everything he says is an admonishment.
