"Eye of the Beholder" by apple_spritzer
Every day after the preliminaries, Lilith eagerly checked her Neomailbox for confirmation of her certain acceptance into the top ten. She knew in her heart she had made it, you know, but still desperately needed the affirmation that she had. We’ve all felt that way at some time, I’m sure.
Well, when a letter finally did arrive after what had felt like months of anxious waiting, Lilith could feel her heart flutter in her chest just like the wings of her precious purple Buzzer, Huckleberry. Her head felt light as she realized that this envelope looked far different than the standard white rectangles she had received from the official Cybunny Beauty Contest coordinator in the past. No, this envelope was made of a thick cream colored paper and sealed with a fancy wax stamp, one with a carrot right in the middle of interlocking vines. Lilith could barely breathe she was so ecstatic.
She absolutely had to open it right then and there. So that is what she did, carefully removing the wax seal and then tearing the fancy cream envelope away to reveal an equally fancy letter handwritten in flawless cursive script. After reading the first sentence (Dear Lilith, we are pleased to inform you that you have been chosen out of hundreds of applicants to participate in this year’s annual Cybunny Beauty Contest), Lilith sprung into the air with glee.
|The Eye of the Beholder|
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some say. Well, that may be true. But, it does not answer to the truth that there are some who benefit from their looks far more than others. That is why we have models and enviable celebrities and popular students at school who use their appearances to their advantage. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, are there some eyes whose opinions carry heavier weight? Or, is it simply that more eyes perceive these lucky individuals as the most beautiful?
You'd think two adventures would be enough for a girl. Between dodging Captain Bloodhook back in the Pirate Caves to recover the Mermaid's Tear and rescuing Bori in the Ice Caves and all. Yet I was hungry for more. I had a thirst for something new, something more bold than before.
|One Way Out: Part Three|
As much as Merida loved traveling on the steam ship, she couldn’t believe it when she finally saw the shores of Mystery Island appear off the bow. “Land ho!” she yelled, from her precarious perch up by the steam stack, to anyone who cared to hear, “Land ho!”
|Dreaming of Adventure: Part Four|
“Hey, look who it is! Cairo!” Stevie interrupted Ramona and Sweet’s conversation and pointed with his stubby trunk.
The adults turned to look and Stacie stirred on Sweet’s lap. The eventide Wocky had just entered the inn. The dinner crowd had just begun to enter.
Sweet looked at Ramona and tilted her head towards Cairo. “Would you mind if I spoke to Cairo? There are some things I feel must be said to him. He is the cause of all of this mess that we are currently in.”
