“Mom is going to kill her for this mess,” I exclaimed gleefully. My sister replied, “And look at the time, it’s almost midnight. You were right to leave the party early to check on her.”

After waiting for almost an hour, we heard the door handle turn. We leapt excitedly out of the closet, and shouted, “Busted! Your days here are numbered.”

But she ignored us completely, and with a strange dreamy smile on her face, fell on the bed. And as we were leaving the room in frustration, I think we heard Cinderella say, “You have NO IDEA!”


Written for the Friday Fictioneers – A story in 100 words or less. Thank you Rochelle for hosting the challenge and the photo prompt. To read the other stories inspired by this prompt click here.
