Cinderella - Act II
After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sits upon her
rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat named
Bob for companionship.
One sunny afternoon out of nowhere, appeared the fairy godmother. Cinderella
said, "Fairy Godmother, what are YOU doing here after all these years"?
The fairy godmother replied, "Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since
I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns? I will
grant thee three wishes."
Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after so me thoughtful consideration,
she whispered, "The prince was wonderful, but not much of an investor. I'm
living hand to mouth on my disability checks, and I wish I were wealthy to carry
me through these difficult times."
Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold. Cinderella said, "Oh, THANK
you, Fairy Godmother!"
The fairy godmother replied, "It is the least that I can do, Cinderella. What do
you want for your second wish?"
Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, "I wish I were young and
full of the beauty and youth I once had."
At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful young visage returned. She
began to feel stirrings inside of her that had been dormant for years. And then
the fairy godmother spoke once more: "You have one more wish; my fair
Cinderella. What shall it be?"
Cinderella looked over to the frightened cat sitting in the corner and said,
shyly, "I wish for you to transform my old cat, Bob into a kind and handsome
young man." Fairy God Mother smiled a knowing smile. And magically, Bob was
suddenly transformed into a handsome and complete gentleman, indeed!
Fairy Godmother winked at Cinderella and said, "Enjoy your new life. You have
earned it." With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, Fairy Godmother was
gone as suddenly as she had appeared.
For a few eerie moments, Bob and Cinderella just looked at each other.
Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most beautiful, stunningly perfect man
she had ever seen. Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her
rocking chair, and held her close in his young muscular arms.
Cinderella blushed coyly and lowered her eyes.
Bob leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath and whispered,
"I bet you're sorry NOW you had me neutered!"
