Julia’s 100 Word Challenge for Grownups strikes again! This week, we’re asked to add 100 words of a story to this prompt
… would seven prove to be too much? …..
And here’s my attempt:
Selfish, silly, sneaky – what can one expect of a girl raised from birth by servants? I moved too fast from stranger to stepmother to, I hoped, mother, and made all worse.
If kindly firmness will not teach conduct becoming a princess, perhaps shock will. Away from the palace, forced into a life with very strange strangers…yes.
Now, how many guards and tutors – three or four? No, too easy to trick. Would seven prove to be too much? I think not, and I must risk it, for now her father is angry. If I do nothing, his wrath will fall on one or both of us, me or Snow White.
