Maiden in the Dark

He has taken my linen shift! My sisters have flown from the lake, and I am stranded here. Where did he go? I will find him. I will plead for the linen. I will tell him the truth. I’ve been seized by a witch and shut up in a glass mountain!

I pray that he will believe me and give me back my clothes. Otherwise, I am trapped in a worse place than the mountain. I am in the dark, with no power at all. Oh, I never thought I would have to beg to go back to the witch!
