Ariel's Addiction

April 25, 2016

As Ariel sat prime in the castle enjoying the airs of royalty a sorrow crept, realizing she gave up 300 years as a majestic maiden of the sea she wept. When the realization had begun a former addiction had come undone. Whos its and whats its a plenty and thing ama bobs galore started to fill the halls and cover the floor. Eric tried to reason  but lost it as his core Ariel repeated "who cares, no big deal, I want more!" No being on earth could ever stop her until one day she discovered a rare dinglehopper.

P.S.  Do you spy the "Sea Crone" overlooking  the Pacific Ocean life.

  6. Love that she made up her mind, "No being on earth could ever stop her until one day she discovered a rare dinglehopper." even though it took her 300 years to realise that.
    Lovely:-)

  10. Well, I guess when the shine wore off the prince, she longed for something new. And, isn't that how most addictions start or continue? Makes you think! Great piece!
