Princess Rosamund and Countess Eleanor's captors have forgotten to attach them to the ball-and-chain overnight- they can escape!
Still chained together, they wait until just before dawn to slip out of the back door of their captors' fortified manor house, and
make a run for it into the forest, the chains cutting into their ankles as they run.
Will they escape? Or will they be dragged back to the manor in chains for yet more punishment and humiliation?
