So Much for Prince Charming - A Fairy Tale

This unexpected fairy tale was inspired by this photo above. 

"Happily ever after...psh." Cinderella brought the empty shot glass to her mouth and licked the inside. "So much for Prince Charming..."

The fairy tale wasn't supposed to end this way. She was meant to ride off in the sunset with her Prince Charming. But, of course, something always gets screwed up on the way to happily ever after. Cinderella signaled to the bar tender for another drink as she thought about her story's demise. The Fairy Godmother had screwed up again. So, Cinderella was here, attempting to drown her sorrows.

"You know?" Cinderella slurred to the man next to her.. "Those mice? They can sing, man. None of this stupid..." She hiccuped. "...Lonesome cowboy crap you've been playing all night."

Cinderella heard the sounds of rustling behind her, and turned. It was Snow White.

"Snow-y baby. What's going on?"

"Cinderella, what do you think you're doing?" Snow White stepped forward, her raven black hair and pearly white skin out of place in the backwoods bar.

"That Fairy Godmother?" Cinderella pointed her stir straw at Snow White. "She has it out for me...we. need. her. out."

Snow White sat down, smoothing down her gown. "Cinderella you need to come back. It was an accident. She got her stories mixed up. She sent Prince Charming  to kiss me back alive too early. You have to come back and finish your story."

"Again? No way. I am so sick of dusting. And that Wicked Stepmother takes her job way too seriously."

Snow White sighed. "Yah, well, those seven little men? Smell. Bad. I'm a little sick of your tantrums that keep me in that little tale for way longer than I'd like."

Cinderella slammed her hands on the table. "Alright, we need to get out on the town. Take a break from this Fairy Tale junk."

Snow White's face brightened. "Okay! Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty are outside! They'll love it!"

Cinderella groaned. "Sleeping Beauty? She's no fun. She can't stay awake!"

They headed towards the back door, past the jukebox as Sinatra sang something about fairy tales.
