WEP: A Christmas Fairytale

“Ella, will you stop looking in the mirror and help me hang the stockings?”

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all… me!”

“How have you not got tired of that after two years? What do you expect to see in there, your Prince Charming?”

“Oof, you’re just being a jealous step-sister. Why don’t you ask Santa to give you extra height this year?”

“You’re being mean and FYI, this year I’m asking for a successful career as a memorable writer.”

*** Years later ***

Newspaper Headline: Years later, Disney Princesses still rule the hearts of young girls.


Finally, made it for this month’s WEP 😁!

Tagline: A dialogue between two sisters that turns into an inspiration for one of them.
