Read Pop by Kayla from Ogilvie Girls’ High School, Tasmania Read The Real World by Shelley from St George Girls’ High School, NSW This work is a short story that I wrote for a school assessment. It had to be a maximum of two pages and about a certain culture. I really had so much fun writing this short story and want to expand on it but I firstly thought that I should get more of an opinion on it and see if I should expand on the story. It is about a young girl who is growing up as a princess in a kingdom in England in the 1800s. She has fallen in love with a knight but is to be wed to the duke. What shall she choose? Love, or to deny the king’s wishes?
