Story Summary

Prince Everett was a very, very, very important person (or so he thought) and simply had to get across the bridge to Highlandsville. Trouble was the bridge was guarded by a troll who demanded a troll toll to cross. Thinking a bit too much of himself when he tricked the troll, he found out that Highlandsville was in the other direction. Think he could trick a troll twice?
