True Love, Not So Much

by on February 10, 2014

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekly prompt, which was to write 33 words about love gone wrong, without using the words: “love, sad, tears, wept, heart, pain”. I went with one of the classic love stories. Enjoy!

“Go on then. She’s only sleeping.”

“Right,” Charming said. “Here goes….”



“Blast! She wasn’t sleeping, she’s dead! Now look at her!”

*twang* *thud*.

“Nice shooting there, Grumpy.”

“Crossbows, sir. Never miss.”

    Yikes! Gone horribly wrong, I would say 🙂

  8. I had to read it twice before I managed to get my head around it but as soon as I had I thought it was brilliant. Very amusing and very well constructed.

    What a great twist on an old theme! Never liked Snow White, and this made me laugh! Great write!

  10. Wow, talk about things going wrong. Nicely done!

  11. That was great! XD

  12. HA! Wasn’t expecting this at all! Settled in to read some romantic, unrequited love stories, or the such, and got Grumpy takin’ down Snow White instead! Cute, funny and unique. 🙂

  13. This is so wrong, but so right. Lol! Thanks for the chuckle.

  14. Zombie Snow White!!

  15. *hahaha* What a way to open the challenge. Totally cracked me up.

  16. It’s not really a fairytale until there’s at least one zombie. This was so much fun to read I wish there were more than 33 words! 🙂

  17. ick . . . and I mean that in the very best way.

  18. XD i love disney so much! great take!
