“Cinderella will go to The Ball!”
Thought the faeries deeply moved by sympathy, like none other time before, when seeing her treatment was more cruel and more despotic than they had ever imagined.
Summoning immediately the Pixies and Elves South to The Enchanted Forest on an important errand. Who swiftly plucked the bouquets saturated in Moon’s mist, and having gathered just enough flowers returned back in no time at all .
The faeries stitched for Cinderella, the most beautiful dress, with a silvery hue, the luminescence that the flowers had earlier absorbed. Fitting her perfectly well..
Then the faeries, pixies and elves escorted Cinderella to the carriage.
It was a single most lustrous pearl, that she had boarded. And, as she set on her way, it started deepening more in luster, especially when passing the carriage of her ugly step-sisters and mother. Whose gaze it transfixed though not their attention. Erroneously, they were thinking that The Moon had come to greet them. Feeling only the pangs of horror, when suddenly realising that they were actually seeing the carriage transporting Cinderella to The Ball!
From thereon ensued their waking nightmare, to be never relived again!
The moon-like carriage became to them some sort of looking glass, revealing a future that they could not bear to comprehend.
The Prince and Cinderella:
He is wearing a crown, and placing a tiara upon her head, taking her hand in his, in marriage, and sealing her lips with a luscious, never ending regal KISS!
At that point, a cry rumbled throughout the kingdom.
It was the ugly sisters omitting, in unison, the loudest, and most heart-wrenched screech ever heard.
It was like a sudden discordant accapella attempting to escape its echoing cacophony. It shattered a mysteriously amorous night. Waking nocturnal creatures and lovers that thought themselves under sonic assaults. Causing most to scatter in different directions from fright of death!
The Step-Mother and-Sisters catatonic with shock, were in their minds enduring the lovers’ image that had refused to fade away.
They Met their doom in their carriage, trapped in a virtual loop witnessing the LOVERS – Prince Charming and Cinderella, vowing marriage till death do them part
-Sealed with a kiss –
over and over again;
Cinderella’s dress, was created from the stuff of Magic.
