The Puppet and the Lady

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Stealthily sneaking through the dark shadows in the tent the puppet made his way to the tent of the world’s smallest lady. He does this routine every night and every night he hopes he doesn’t get caught. He loves Irina, the world’s smallest lady and she him, but the world doesn’t know that he isn’t really a puppet, but a prince who had a spell cast on him hundreds of years ago. Irina is beautiful, but she too had a spell put on her by the same wizard. Fate had put them in the same circus. They fell in love.

Although the wizard made him a puppet, he didn’t take his life away from him so he could still love his lovely Irina. They lived for their nightly tryst. They hadn’t kissed as the wizard warned them that if they did, he would freeze them forever as the puppet and the beautiful statue. They were too afraid to test whether he was serious or not. There love would remain unrequited.

    Nice love story. Used to hear in childhood how wizards and witches would put a hex and transform an individual. Seems like little lady and the puppet are following the same story line. Hope there will be someway the curse will be lifted.
