Summary : Snow White, a princess who looked like a globe, had a big dream to marry a charming lonely prince.
A long time ago, in Piatto Delizioso Kingdom, far far away, there lived a beautiful queen and charming king. They had a daughter whose name was Snow White. Although her name was Snow White, she’s not as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as ebony wood. She looked like a globe, as if you could find whole countries on her body. Then, why was her name Snow White? It was because her parents highly expected to have a child like Snow White.
One lovely morning, Snow White just woke up and looked at her face in a magical mirror.
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most gorgeous woman on earth?” Snow White asked.
Her mirror yawned widely and answered, “Angelina Jolie, dear.”
“Hhmmm. I see. Then, who is the most gorgeous woman in this kingdom?” asked her while hoping to get the ‘expected’ answer.
“Of course, it’s not you, dear.” told the mirror, feeling so sick of her million same questions.
Feeling unsatisfied with the mirror’s answer, she got really mad and wanted to throw it to the floor. Fortunately, a messenger of the kingdom came to bring good news from La Pizza Kingdom and the mirror was safe. Snow White read the letter hastily as she was extremely curious about it. It was about an invitation for all the eligible ladies in kingdoms so as to find Lonely Heart Prince a wife. “It seems impossible because there might be some ladies from other kingdoms who are much more beautiful than you,” the mirror said. No matter what, Snow White put him into her potential husband list and had an idea to propose him undoubtedly. “How can he refuse this beautiful, kindhearted, humble, and sweet princess?” she said with full of confidence while looking in the mirror. She sat down for hours to think about how to steal his heart. She finally decided to meet Lonely Heart Prince and propose him before the party was held. What a slick idea. Food, drink, money, and clothes were ready for her long journey.
The long journey started. She kept on running, running, and running for her love. No matter how big her body was. No matter how big the obstacle she faced. She had to pass through the woods, jump over the swamp, climb mountains, and sail through an ocean. It took forever to reach La Pizza Kingdom. Having arrived at his kingdom, Snow White immediately found Lonely Heart Prince. Sadly, he rejected her proposal since she didn’t meet the criteria, one of which was good-looking. She walked away, still thinking how to steal the prince’s heart. Nevertheless, she kept doing a lot of efforts, one of which is begging the dwarves to change her to be a beautiful slim princess.
She entered a mushroom house, in which those ‘tiny’ creatures lived. Since there was nobody, she decided to sleep for a while. Some hours later, the seven dwarves arrived at home and found a stranger there. They asked what she was doing there. After that, she told them about her intention to buy a magical formula which could make her beautiful. All of her money weren’t even enough to pay it, so she had to work as a part-time maid in their house. She turned into a beautiful slim princess right after drinking it. She looked in the mirror and smiled widely, “I bet Lonely Heart Prince won’t neglect my love again.”
Day by day, she had been waiting for a right time to meet the prince. When Snow White was washing clothes, suddenly someone knocked on the door and shouted “Yuhuuu. Is anybody home? It’s me, Lonely Heart Prince. I came here to play with you, folks.” The prince often played with them since he felt so lonely that he had no siblings. Snow White was surprised while opening the door. At the same time, the dwarves appeared and said ‘hello’ to the prince. “Do you still remember me? It’s me, Snow White. Look at me! I’m beautiful now. You must be falling in love with me.” “I may not fall in love with you even if you’re as beautiful as Kristen Stewart,” he answered. The following day, Snow White begged the dwarves to give her a magical formula to make him love her. The dwarves said there was no formula to make someone fall in love. She might be able to buy ‘beauty’ but not ‘love’. Afterwards, Snow White decided to call a witch to buy a magical formula.
“Hello, madam. I want to buy a magical formula to make someone love me.”
“Well, I have three kinds of formula. Which one do you want?”
“I want the cheapest one.”
“The cheapest one? Well, I’ll give you this poisonous apple. I bet you can make him love you. After eating this apple, you will die. I mean sleeping. The only thing to wake you up is a kiss.”
Soon, she ate the apple and collapsed. Coming back home, the dwarves and prince found the collapsed princess. The dwarves and prince tried to wake her up. They panicked.
“Is she drunk?”
“She is sleeping.”
“You’re all wrong. She was poisoned.”
“She committed suicide because of the brokenhearted feeling. You must be responsible for it.” The dwarf said while staring at the prince with a sharp gaze.”
“You guys think it’s my fault? I only told her the truth. What should I do now?”
“But I don’t love her. It would only work if I loved her. I have no feeling for her.”
The Prince reluctantly kissed her, yet nothing happened. A kiss didn’t even wake her up. Since then, Snow White never opened her eyes. It’s so sad but it’s true. This happened not because she chose the cheapest formula, but it was because there’s no magical formula to make someone fall in love. Nonetheless, that’s not the end of the world. The life of the prince and dwarves kept going on.
