Time to Write – Apathy

***

Standing on the edge of the castle wall, Princess Mary surveys the lands, so beautiful in the sunset hues. This is her favorite spot of the huge structure where she and her father the King, call home. In the early evening light the peaceful surroundings seem dreamlike, never showing the daily struggles of the people below. At this quiet time everyone is in their own small abodes. It is daylight when Mary keeps to herself inside the castle walls. The machinations to keep Mary and her father safe are too real for her to imagine, so she chooses to ignore them.
