Snow White (17) MURDERED
(Article appeared in the FarAway Times, by K.M. Flint)
An announcement has been made from The Palace this morning that our beloved Princess Snow White (17) ‘Fairest in the Land’ has been killed yesterday by person(s) unknown.
The whole country is in deep mourning.
Our beloved Regentess the Queen (age unknown) has announced ‘There will be a thorough investigation into the true happenings, the Hunter (44) will look into the demise of Snow White (17)’
Sources from the Palace whisper that SUSPICION already leans heavily on the 7 Dwarves, the likes of whom our beloved Princess, unfortunately, frequented these past months.
These Dwarves who for reasons unknown live in a rickety shack deep in the woods, gave a statement to your reporter early this afternoon.
Their spokesdwarf (a shifty individual wearing glasses) declared:
“We the Seven Dwarves, hereby announce that yesterday afternoon the Princess Snow White(17) has been robbed of her life by a cowardly but successful assassination attempt. We are deeply saddened but the attack was not unexpected. An ugly old witchy woman was sighted around 3 o’clock nearby our house in the woods. Shortly thereafter we received word from a trustworthy friend that Snow White(17) had become unwell and we hurried home from our place of work. There she was, already lifeless. We, the Seven Dwarves shall make Her Highness a glass coffin so everybody will be able to still see our beloved Princess. She will spend her eternal slumber in a clearing not far from our home. We keep holding out hope for a happy ending.”
This statement dear readers is of course extremely suspicious in and of itself!
Our dear Princess never had to fear anything or anybody! Only the bad company she kept this last year could have meant her any harm at all!
How much importance must we accredit to the socalled apparition of an old witchy woman, ugly or otherwise?
No one except for this ‘trustworthy friend’ of the Dwarves has seen her.
And what to think of this wild idea of a glass coffin?
Why can she not be buried decently in the Family Crypt?
It’s not like there will be a Prince Charming riding to that clearing to kiss Snow White(17) awake!
Our dear Queen Regentess (age unknown) now ‘Fairest in the Land’ has by statement announced to take thorough and definitive measures against whomever who attacks or defies The Palace, now or in the future. The Hunter (44) has been dispatched to investigate and if necessary remove any threat against our Queen Regentess (age unknown).
Not only persons like these Dwarves but also potentially dangerous elements like Dragons and Unicorns must as of this day forward be sharply observed and when necessary forcibly removed from our happy Land.
As soon as there is more news in this utterly mystifying case, our reporters from the FarAway Times will make it known to you in our usual elaborate and truthful way.
