Quotes About Parents Leaving

Now she envisioned torments that were all too real.She pictured one of Cinderellas stepsisters planting her foot on a cutting board - and biting down hard as the cleaver chopped through the bone of her big toe.She imagined a princess used to safety, luxury, throwing the rank hide of a donkey over her shoulders, its boneless face drooping past her forehead like a hideous veil.And she imagined her future self, flat on her back in bed, limbs as heavy as if theyd been chained down. Mice scurried across her body, leaving footprints on her dress. Spiders spun an entire trousseaus worth of silk and draped her in it, so it appeared she wore a gown of the finest lace, adorned with rose petals and ensnared butterflies. Beetles nestled between her fingers like jeweled rings - lovely from a distance, horrific up close." - Author: Sarah Cross
