Make-Believe….

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Storybook Day.”

fairy-taleReading a lot of Enid Blyton’s books and Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales as a child helped to form an imaginary World where everything was possible in my developing mind and since I have fancied myself as quite an actress, I simply cannot allow such an opportunity to amend some wrongs and settle scores go away.

We don’t have to look too far, I would love an opportunity to be Cinderella.

Those horrid step-sisters need a little comeuppance. A little pinch, pulling of hair and boxing an ear would soothe my maltreated nerves.

All that sweet syrupy nature of Cinderella was a little too acquiescent!

Second dips, I would love to be a fairy in Enid Blyton’s ”The Magic Faraway Tree.” They had such a delightful time.

Back to reality, as a grown woman, my current favorite fictional character exists in the pages of the novel that I am putting together.

I am still trying to understand her and where she is taking her story to.

Witchy witch…

I looked in the mirror,

Arrrrgh!

I frightened myself!

Who is that crazy looking lady?

Surely not I?

Her hair was sticking out at all angles,

Her eyes bleary, like she had spent the night on a witch hunt.

Is that a hair I see on my chin?

Oh my!

All I need is a hooky nose,

To complete the look.

Now, where is my wand?

So that I can do SHAZZAAM!

And in a POOF!

Cinderella, I am.
