The Pink Flower In a Glass Bottle

A lady was kept in a bottle, a glass bottle, for being so beautiful. She was kept for a long time as a prisoner because the witch did it to her. Anybody at the present time may not believe in witchcraft anymore. Not even in werewolves or transformation of any kind. But who can tell which is which if we only base everything on what human eyes can see? The witch was jealous of the lady's beauty and so envious of her angelic voice. How the witch was able to lure the beautiful lady is by befriending her, then deceived her that her voice can sound more interesting by inserting a string in her pharynx. The witch insisted that through the throat, the voice box (larynx) can be smoothened to bring out the best in singing. The lady lost her voice and cannot speak to anyone anymore. She was embarrassed and got angry to herself for being fooled. She ran away from home and was so irate for what the witch has done to her. The worst of all, the glass bottle is the place where the beautiful lady ran to -- to escape her sadness and regret. All of these transpired because of the witch's selfishness and unkindness. The memory of the beautiful lady with an angelic voice is now felt and represented by a pink flower in a glass bottle.

Wow…an interesting write! Jealousy, betrayal, anger, isolation, sadness, and regret…the one thing left - a pink flower in a bottle. Great prose.

The piece of work above is purely a product of my imagination, being a lover of short stories for kids.
