The Burning Kingdom

by I. Stewart | Score: 1800

She walked away from the kingdom, a fiery blaze setting alight behind her.  The walls of the kingdom begin crashing down as she walked calmly through the gates of a place she once called home. 

Although people were running around panicking, she swore she could hear a piano playing classical music. She began to hum while still walking as if nothing had happened.

As if it was simply a brief moment of exercise. She heard the ambitious town shoemaker yelling at her. Whether it was in anger or distress she could never make out.

She just hummed and kept on walking. Adding a little twirl of delight every now and then. 

'What a lovely day to ruin the world," She thought to herself.

Yes, she just destroyed her own kingdom. But why?

We never listen to the villain's side of the story anyway so why should we now?

So yes, there are many being killed and lives being ended as she twirls around in happiness.

She finally escaped the place she was forced to call home.

And so she twirled.
