Case 91

Carly Ryan

This is a fable about trust, love, and independence.

The story features three characters: a mother, her daughter, and the daughter’s suitor.

The daughter’s suitor lived deep inside a very dark cave.

One day, the daughter asked her mother if she could visit this man. The mother had concerns but did not want to stand in the way of her daughter’s happiness.

So she pulled a thread out from the edge of her skirt and told her daughter to hold onto it as she made her way into the cave.

If, for whatever reason, she felt in danger all she needed to do was tug on the thread.

Her mother would then pull her away from harm.
