ENTRY: (short - but here goes...)
The youngest daughter of the home received many suitors that spring.
Following tradition, new bedding was added to her chamber with each proposal of marriage. News spread across the land of the highly sought-after maiden who slept atop a tower of linen. As they heard the tale, eager men traveled far distances to try to win the lady's hand.
Night after night, visitors called upon the home. And night after night, the maiden fell asleep on an ever-growing mountain of crushed dreams.
Years passed, yet her popularity didn't wane. The bedding grew to epic proportions. Musicians wrote ballads about her, playwrights created tragic masterpieces for the stage, men longed to win the ultimate prize, while young girls worldwide fantasized about being her.
Ultimately one bright summer morning, the most popular woman in the world died alone.
