If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Twisted christmas fairy tale blogfest entry

Hello everyone, here is my blogfest entry for the Twisted Christmas fairy tale blogfest. 
This was so much fun to write! I can't wait to read everyone elses blogfest entry.

 The exchange

"Snow White, you just lie back and rest. Remember don't answer the door for anyone. We will be back in the morning." Said Doc

Snow white nodded. Her little men were so sweet and kind to her, they only wished to protect her. She watched each one leave the house. The minute the door shut she rushed off the bed to grab all the presents she hid. She made a gift for each one, Doc, Happy, Dopey, Sneezy, Grumpy, Bashful, and Sleepy. Tomorrow was Christmas Morning and she wanted it to be the best Christmas she could ever give them.

"Knock knock, hello Snow White? I have something important to tell you." an old woman's voice said.

 Snow White looked out the window. A hunched over old lady stood on the step. She had a little basket with her covered in a red cloth and her outfit was all white with red hems. A cute little cap sat on her gray hair all turned up in a  bun. Her cheeks were rosy from the falling snow outside. Poor thing. Snow white new she had to let her in or she'd freeze. The door opened and the old woman took a step in.

 "Do I know you?" Snow white asked leading her to the fireplace with seven red stockings hanging on the mantle above.

 "You should know me." The old woman said as she sat on a lone chair. 

 "Here let me get you a nice cup of warm milk. I have cookies to if you are hungry."

 "Oh that wont be necessary." The old lady pulled the red cloth from her basket and she had cookies and milk tucked inside. "I brought these for you dear."

 "Oh how very sweet of you." Snow white picked a little gingerbread man with green frosting. She took the first bite and it tasted so wonderful with sugar and spices she scarfed the whole thing down. "Didn't you say you had something to tell me?"

 "Yes dear...would you like some milk before we talk?"

 Snow white drank a cup of her milk. It was warm and sweet going down. She briefly wondered how the milk stayed warm when she suddenly saw the fireplace turn into two fireplaces. Her knees shook and she landed hard on the floor knelt beside the old woman.

 "Ah now we can talk. You see You have taken my husband Snowwhite. You took Mr. Claus away from me and I just can't have that."

 "I don't understand..." Snowwhite slumped to the floor watching the old woman turn into three old women. Her heart sputtered next to her rib cage and the fire was hot on her back.

 "You're little men, are all my husband. He saw you and used his Christmas magic to turn himself into dwarfs. Every day when they got to work, he turns back into Santa Claus and goes to the factory at the north pole. He calls me every night to tell me how he will be working late with so many new children coming every year. But You see I followed him and that's how I found you." All the Mrs Claus's rocked back and forth in their chairs smiling down at Snow White.

 "What have you done to me?" Snow white's upper lip began to sweat and heat overwhelmed her like a hot flashes.

 "Oh don't worry dear, its just a little potion. In a little while you will forget everything, and we will trade places. I'll thank you as you walk out the door to go back to the north pole." Mrs Claus snatched a piece of hair from snow whites head. She placed it in a glass of milk then drank it all in one gulp. Snow white watched as the old Lady turned into her right before her eyes. The next thing she remembered was looking at Snow white standing in front of the door.

 "Thank you for the cookies Mrs Claus." Snow white said.

 "Oh you are very welcome dear." Mrs Claus shuffled out the door with her empty basket. She knew she had to return to the North Pole to help Mr. Claus get ready for Christmas.

Thanks for participating - it's fun when it's just for fun with fellow bloggers. ;)


Old Kitty said...

Oh my!! Mrs Claus kicks butt!! Wow!! Poor Snow White!! But it can't all be bad - I mean even if she gets to live in the North Pole she'll still have her own little elves running round after her!!

This is a really nice and wicked twist to the story!! Thank you!! Take care

Summer Ross said...

I'm very glad you all are enjoying it! Thank you so much for the comments.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I can't help feeling bad for Snow White. But Mrs. Claus will eventually feel empty, knowing her affection from Santa's divided selves is really for someone else. You can't steal love. It must be freely given for it to mean anything.

LOL. Your prose is so good that you have me talking of them as real people. Great job, Roland

Summer Ross said...

Thank you Roland, I'm glad you liked it.

Pk Hrezo said...

A fun combination of ideas for the christmas theme.

Ellie said...

Ooo...I didn't see that coming! Brilliant twisted tale.

The Golden Eagle said...

I love this twisted tale! :) A great read!

N. R. Williams said...

I'll think twice before eating cookies now. I half way expected to see Hermione save Snow White from that spell. Nice.

Oh perfect; snatching the hair and adding it to the milk!!!

And I am so glad to see you used Christmas in this entry. I was beginning to think I was the only one who tied it to Santa.

I love this possessive Mrs. Claus.

Well done, Summer.
