Wishful Thinking

On a heath sitting beneath a toadstool,
his head’s in his hands; his wings’re folded;
his fairy tail swishes, and like a fool
he’s wishing that Prince Charming’s blindfolded
state won’t continue. It’s all that twit Cinder’s
doing; the belle of the ball cast a spell.
That glass slipper’s its trigger; it hinders
all rational thought; the Prince’s not well,
not since she banished Pink. Without invite,
he can’t go; there’s no one to  break the spell.
A beloved voice booms out and he takes flight.
Cinder’s gone; fairy dust falls, breaks the spell.
“I thought I’d lost you, my friend,” the Prince said.
“Promise you’ll never leave me, ‘less I’m dead.”

Even fairies have wishes and just sometimes they come true.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I read both your prompts before I left for work and the tale spun itself while I sat in traffic. It was most insistent that I write it down. Thank you for the prompt.
