Rapunzel

First of all, this isn't the Rapunzel story you grew up hearing. In fact, the only similarities between the two stories are the names. The story you're familiar with is, in all reality, the twisted lie. THIS story is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. The first part of the story is essentially the same as the traditional Rapunzel story you think you know. However, once Rapunzel was taken into the care of the "evil" witch things changed. The real story goes like this:
One day a handsome prince went riding out by the witches castle. He passed by the tallest tower and heard a lot of cracking whips and screaming. Figuring it was a damsel in distress, he decided to "save" her. But as he got closer to the castle, he could find no way to enter it and save the young damsel in distress. So he got beneath the only window of the tallest tower and he called out, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair." (For somehow he knew that her name and the fact that she had very long braided hair.) Just then the whipping sounds stopped and Rapunzel's long braid tumbled down to the ground. The young prince wasted no time scrambling up to "save" her. When he reached the window he immediately wished he'd just stayed in bed that morning.
"What are you doing here?" demanded the "evil witch, "You're interrupting our fun. We were right in the middle of kinky love-making and you just had to go and ruin the moment didn't you?"
"W-w-well I-I-I was just t-trying to s-save..." stammered the tongue tied young prince.
"Save who? Me?" exclaimed an astounded Rapunzel, as she removed the furry handcuffs that had previously bound her to the wall.
"Do I really look like I need saving? What were you thinking? Did you really think I was some bubble-headed damsel in distress who needed to be rescued? Furthermore, did yo really expect me to marry you?! We're lesbians!"
Stunned the young prince fell off the whip made out of Rapunzel's hair and rode back to his father's castle in pain from the fall and blinded from the sights he witnessed in the tallest tower.
