Lucky For Me
Fairy tales are never far away, at least not when you have an imagination as big as a castle! One little girl’s idea of sleeping beauty has nothing to do with damsels in distress as she battles a witch, a dragon, and a playpen full of trolls. She has one goal in mind—get her kiss from the prince!
FIRST 150 WORDS:
I fight to keep my eyes open, but I’m just so sleepy. It might be that magic nap potion the old witch gave me…
Lucky for me I’m immune to magic potions. I climb from my bed and trek through the forest, looking for the road back to my castle. I didn’t get my kiss from the prince. Besides, I’m hungry and there’s always something to eat in the royal kitchen.
The forest is thick with vines and trees and stuff.
Lucky for me I have my trusty sword. It can cut through the thickest mess—the package says so itself. I slice and dice a path through the forest.
“Aren’t you supposed to be sleeping?” I hear the witch cackle. She must be following me.
“I’m not tired yet!” I call back, peeking over my shoulder to see if she’s gaining ground.
Lucky for me she’s been thwarted by the vines.
