Cinderella's Starry Night

Trees whispering gossip; 
obviously a scandalous myth. 

She stares up into the copper brown walls. 
Resting, but not relaxing, in a bed of straws. 
Her long golden hair nesting...

She was ravishing; beautiful beyond condemnation.

Yet, it's coo whenever she sputtered. 

Her gait was just so alluring
