Tags: Kingdom, fate, de.ath, beauty….

By Tofunmi Nikky


It has always been a dream, each night the dream haunts her. Her ugly self torments her the more together with everydays ridicule. And there she is dreamimg for the prince of Madagascar kingdom to be hers.


And there came a night, she’d cried to bed after giving herself scars like she always does when her usual dream leads her to a path she’d never trend before.

A path that leads to a land which serves as a solution to her facial problem……

A land that no ugly creature ever lives in,if you are one, you have to sacrifice a special thing to be like them….

And that land, Sabrina is really to trend on it and go explore it till she finds the great sorceress that will make her ugliness be a thing of the past.

Where is that wonderland?

It’s the BEAUTY LAND…..A kingdom where beauty dwells.

“Oh de.ath, why is it that you don’t attack those who really desires you? Am waiting, arms spread to usher you in.

Please, take me away. This life is just too unfair. I want you de.ath…..I really do”sobs and whimpers filled the toilet where Sabrina is.

As she cried;letting those tears pour freely, she kept cutting herself with the knlfe. Instead of feeling any pain, a feeling of fulfillment filled her.

She had gone a long way with cutting herself that pains no longer scares her, it’s the pain itself that runs away.

She’s Sabrina Killian, seventeen going to eighteen years of age. That’s the only introduction about her that any other human being would have pleasure to hear.

Yes?..But only if you will want to talk about her ugliness. In the whole of Kingdom, if it comes to ugliness rating, trust her, no one can drag it with her, no one can take the position, she is rated #1 in ugliness; top winner.

And that exactly is what she hates herself for.

Her parents has always been avoiding her, they don’t like the villagers seeing her together with them. Neither does her younger sister, Nina.Only her elder brother has a soft spot of care for her.

“Sabrina*her elder brother, Austen’s voice could be heard outside of the toilet as he knocked the toilet door.

“Open up Sabrina, those visitors we have been expecting are finally here.

You told me you can’t wait to see them, remember doll?”Austen said at the door, placing his ears on it to see if he would any sound whatsoever

“Go Austen!…..I don’t wanna see anybody, ok? so just let me be”she shouted her voice trembling “…..For now”she added, her voice now down

Austen scoffed, still not backing off

“Don’t tell me that Doll, you know I won’t take that from you….

You’d better open this door cause you know a minute is too much for me to break down this fking door”he said

And this time, Sabrina couldn’t help but notice how much seriousness his voice held. She knows him, he never jokes with his words

Sabrina quickly starts cleaning up the place, she took the blade from the floor and threw it into the trashcan in the toilet.

She then looked down at her hand and the bI.ood glared back at her, she really has to do something about it.

Cause if Austen happened to see this now, she knows how rageful he’ll become

“The countdown doll…..”Austen informed her

“……9….8….7….6….5….4…..”he paused to examine the door, it doesn’t look like she’s going to come out.

“Don’t let me do this Sabrina”he said with a sigh *…..3……..2…..and…..”he was about calling out the last number when she jerked the door opened and ran out

“You saved the dmned door”he said and before she could protest, he held her hand and dragged her to the sitting room.
