Because I am mildly sadistic at times, for the drabble meme ask thingamobobish thing, Regina and Wanweird.
Thanks everyone! If you want to send me any, the full words list can be found here.
I’m mildly masochistic, so I’ll happily oblige.
Wanweird (n.)- An unhappy fate
Once upon a time, there lived a girl
named Regina. She enjoyed riding horses and playing in the vast estate. Her
mother disapproved, calling these pursuits unladylike, and each time she was
caught, Regina would suffer. Their world had magic, and so each night before
she went to bed, Regina would say a whispered prayer to the fairies, wishing
fervently that they would rescue her from this suffering. No one heard her.
Maybe she didn’t deserve to be rescued.
One day, the stable boy caught her eye
when from the corner of her eye she saw him feeding sugar cubes to the horses
and stroking their manes kindly. His blue eyes sparkled when he realized she
was watching him. Her brown eyes lit up when she realized he felt the same way.
Regina found love with Daniel; moments of
reprieve from her mother’s endless tyranny, stolen kisses under the tree on the
hill and minutes lingered in the stables after her lessons had concluded. He
had loved her, and Regina knew then that true love was happiness. Maybe she
deserved this after all.
A scream tore through the air as a young
girl bounded through the meadow on a spooked horse. Regina grabbed her without
a second thought, reassuring her after seeing the fear in her eyes. The girl
hugged her eagerly, thanking her for saving her life. Perhaps Mother was wrong.
Perhaps Regina was good.
Daniel promised to give her his life and
was forced to give it immediately. Regina wondered why her happiness was not
allowed to last. Maybe she didn’t deserve a happy ending.
