Cinderella and other tangents

Type, type, type along. At his youngest sister's wedding, much discussion of the prince's as-yet-unidentified bride.

Veers off into a discussion of marrying a woman not of royal blood (he won't) then more specifically into marrying after three balls at which a mysterious woman appears -- that won't happen, either.

I think his oldest sister is going to point out very firmly that they have no notion that these things can happen to him, and they can still hope that he, like his three sisters, can marry and not even appear in a tale.  (He won't.)

And it may need to be revised out later, but that's going to the second pass.
