She wakes from her dream with a smile. The melody hangs about her head, a soft, delicious whisper. A dream is a wish…
A mouse scurries across the bare floor. “Hello, little friend!” she says, and scooping it up, she listens patiently to words it isn't saying.
The door opens. “Cinderella?”
UGLY BITCHES!” She throws the mouse at her stepsister, teeth bared.
“Oh dear. Anastasia?”
A noisy, confusing interval, ending with Cinderella wrapped securely in a large sheet.
BITCHES!” she screams. “One day, my prince will come!
“Now, dear.” Drizella spoons soup into the frothing mouth. “That song’s not yours.”

    Thanks - watched the disney movie the other day with the kids I look after, suddenly thought "wait a minute - this could all be the paranoid delusions of a mad woman," and knew I wouldn't be able to get to sleep unless I wrote it down. Hope you enjoyed it.
