Prompt: She was as multi-layered and branching as a millennia-old fairy tale that existed long before the words 'once upon a time' and will exist long after 'and they lived happily ever after'. Because nothing really happens just once. All stories repeat themselves hundreds of times, changing form. And no one lives happily ever after. Nor unhappy. Everyone lives happily and unhappily, differently at every moment and sometimes both at the same time.
