I looked down at the cars on the road and the people way down on the sidewalk. They looked like they were having fun.... I mentally slapped myself. 

"No," I said aloud. "You like it up here," I told myself, trying to smother the little spark inside of me that I knew wanted to just jump right off the balcony. __________________________________________________________ 

According to Mother, the only time that I ever left this apartment was when I was born in a hospital a few blocks away. My entire world view is limited to whatever I can see from our 37th story penthouse, which, honestly, isn't much. 

Mother thought that she controlled every aspect of my life. 

She was wrong.

That's sweet, and part of me hopes she's just overprotective, but if not, She could be doing that to keep her happy. Or she's a good ma and I'm over thinking things.

The horrible thing is that it is all true and she lives in a tall building as well.

I just now realised the key was supposed to represent Rapunzel's hair
                              But why doesn't the mom just have her own key? I mean, they're pretty easy to replicate
