girls fighting evil; fairytale: bluebeard’s good wife

After several goings backwards and forwards, she was forced to bring him the key. Bluebeard, having very attentively considered it, said to his wife, “Why is there blood on the key?”

“I do not know,” cried the poor woman, paler than death.

“You do not know!” replied Bluebeard. “I very well know. You went into the closet, did you not? Very well, madam; you shall go back, and take your place among the ladies you saw there.”

(she saves herself, and the future girls he would have taken. when she becomes queen and inherits his great fortune, she guides her kingdom to victory against the great demon invasion. her enemies are surprised by her strength, but they forget: she is a survivor.)
