Flash Fiction #82 – A Fairy-Tale Ending

Once upon a time,

in a poor village,

to a poor family,

was born the most beautiful baby.

Every passing day,

her beauty grew.

On her 18th birthday,

her family sold her.

They told her she was lucky.

To be bought by a king.

He wined and dined her.

And she put on smiles

as she twirled around the kingdom

in her silk dresses. 

But one day

she noticed a fray

in her fine dress.

The more she pulled at the thread,

the more it unraveled.

In the morning,

all that remained of the girl

was a pile of thread

and this fairy tale.
