into the mill

So the heroine of the tale is walking into the mill. . . .

Chasing some young boys.  For the purpose of getting them, or maybe the old miller, to tell the tale about the mill a generation back -- and why the princess and later queen in the next kingdom had such a nose.

Which brings up the point that the princess is not guaranteed to get the guy.

But it does mean I need to describe the mill sufficiently well. . . I've been in mills before.  Water mills.  Let's see if I can pull this off. . . .
