“I want to be the love of your life, Amanda,” Brian said. “What must I do to be your Prince Charming?”
Amanda thought for a moment and said,
“You need to bring me flowers
For no particular reason.
You need to be a man I can lionize
Someone who casts long shadows
A man who isn’t at all pedantic
And who would never lead a vendetta
Or leave me in isolation
You must be my novella hero
And cast a romantic spell over me
Then you’ll be my Prince Charming.”
