(OOC: First story featuring Corona. For those of you who didn't read her WG
and are wondering what the heck is going on, the answer is her stories are
written in poem form, as opposed to the usual prose. Hope it works out okay.)
Her maiden name, Corona Sky
Her life, begun on Cinnabar
Her destiny, a quiet town
That lay beside the seas afar.
The name of this simplistic place
Was merely known as New Bark Town
And it was home to Bellatrix,
The reason for her wedding gown.
Her day of union come at last,
She felt a quiet sense of pride
That she had found her chosen love
And on this day would be his bride.
A smile formed upon her lips
As she stood there, adorned in white
And studied her reflected face
That flickered with the candlelight.
A final check, to see for sure
That all was as it ought to be
She made her way into the hall
In elegant simplicity.
Her dress, as white as any star
And perfect as the rising moon
Surrounded her with radiance
As brilliant as the sun at noon.
Then suddenly - a man, in black!
He sprang up from the dark nearby
Her mouth was covered by his hand
And stifled was her fervent cry.
His prey secure, he sprang away
A deadly smile on his face
And in a moment, she was gone
With naught but mem'ry in her place.
And there, before the altar stood
A doubly apprehensive pair
Nurse Joy, the makeshift minister
And facing her, Bellatrix Flare.
Nearby, a nervous Ronan stood
An unused ring still in his hand
With unsure looks all roundabout
And a non-playing wedding band.
The lights were on, the people watched
And muttered impatient remarks
As whispered questions spread about
Like miniature fiery sparks.
And everybody waited on
Expectant of the bride-to-be
The seconds slowly ticked away
With nothing left to do, or see.
