New story: A Fairy Tale

I forced myself to write today (last night?), and here is the result:
A Fairy Tale. Like many things, this story will
mean different things to different people. It has some meaning, but
should not be taken as definitive. The true test of it as literature
would be if complete strangers can understand it, but what complete
stranger reads my ShortStories, anyway?

It doesn’t feel very fairy-tale-ish. Perhaps I need to make the plot
formulaic. ;)
