Frog Prince

PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook
A few years after the fairy tale wedding the cracks started to appear.  From his insistence on her wearing glass slippers to bed, his online chats with Sleep1ngBooty and the worrisome new habit of pulling of her hair, their relationship lacked the spark.   

She even considered the idea of staring in a reality show, “The Real Princesses of Fairyland” but her Fairy Godmother had vetoed that idea.  For that he said one needed to have a leaked tape like the one Show White had done when she lived with the dwarves.


Maybe if I turned the prince into a frog?

    The frog idea might just work. Maybe if and when she changes him back he'll appreciate her more. Let him live in the well a while. Good writing Subroto. :D --- Suzanne
