It is a story about a man who fell in love with a female, possibly a princess. He said he would do anything for her hand. So she told him to wait outside her balcony/window for a ridiculous number of days/weeks. So he waited there without leaving, day and night, through the cold. Every night she looked out the window he was there. The night before the final day, she saw him still waiting outside. On the final day she decided to reward him, but to her surprise, he left.

This is just the jist of it, but if you know the name of the story, or can help me find the whole story, please help. Thank You! : )

The story is called 'Fun With Dick and Jane'.

Either that, or 'Romeo & Juliet' - I keep getting those two stories mixed up.

The author was Don Adams, whose real name is Donald Yarmy. He played Maxwell Smart, Secret Agent 86, on the TV show 'Get Smart' when he wasn't penning romantic plays.

If you're going to be an arse, then at least be a smart one. That was neither helpful or funny.
