The Seven Deadly Dwarves

It was a clear evening for my eighteenth birthday party. I decided I did not want a big bash. Instead, I only wanted the people I cared the most about around me. It narrowed down the list a lot. I invited Joanne, my best friend since first grade. We are never apart. I guess the fact that we are the only kids in our families made us close.

Then there is Collin. I made it a point to invite him. He was everything that my dreams wanted. In real life well he tends to be the opposite of the dreamy Collin. Finally, I invited Evy. She graduated from Preston University last year, but we became close over the summer holiday. She was not the person she was portraying to everyone. She was my rock.

“Amanda come down and let’s get this started.”

That was Arnold my cousin who had to come because well—he’s Arnold. You’ll see what I mean when I get down there. I looked one more time in the mirror and gave myself that “They are going to die when they see you” look. Then laughed.

I ran down the stairs to see that my party was a little bigger than I anticipated. I walked out and the three most heinous girls from school were there. “Why are they here?”

“Amanda, you need to be more social. Collin brought them. He said that you told him he could bring someone.” My mom whispered. Then she kissed me and went out to the backyard and served refreshments.

I managed to move and go out to my guests.

“Amanda, wow you were hiding a lot with those baggy clothes you wear.”

And here we go.

“Yeah, I really did feel the need to show the goods until today,” I told Willa one of the three girls.

I looked at all three in order of importance. There is Yona, the leader with the white hair anyone has ever seen. Viola, yup her name is Viola after the instrument. Her second in command and then there is Willa. Willa is thin, endowed on top and it matches the bottom. The one thing about Willa that you need to know is she’s that she is the mistress of deceit.

You want a fabrication of what you did last weekend when you were with your family. Willa will be there for you.

The music was good, and the party was on its way. Joanne made it over to me and gave me a hug.

“Welcome to the newly adult group. How do you feel?”

I looked up then back at her and stuck my tongue out.

“Oh girl, you got a tongue piercing. Does your mom know?” She looked genuinely concerned.

“Yes, no worries. I wanted to have something to signify that I am eighteen.”

“Ok, but it also attracts certain people.”

“Don’t believe everything you hear,” I said then looked at Collin looking at Yona.

“Is it me but does it seem that they are closer than they were before?”

Joeann slowly turned away from me.

“Spill it.”

“Well, you don’t want me to believe everything I hear.”

“Joany spill.”

“Remember in math when we learned about Vectors.”

“Yeah, it’s an object with magnitude and direction.”

“His object increased in magnitude and aimed in her direction. Which she did not deviate from.”

Did she just tell me that those two are —

“You mean that they are adulting. The adulting that adults do behind closed doors?”

“You got the point.”

We still speak in code since we have not quite adjusted to being considered an adult around our parents.

“This party is nice but a bit too dull for me,” Viola said as she licked some frosting from my cake off her fingers.

“My sentiments exactly.”

I knew that voice. That was grans she made it.

“Oh no the elderly arrived,” Willa whispered.

I went to my grans and gave her a hug, she smelled of vanilla, cherry, and something spicy. I pulled away and I saw that she looked different too.

“Gans, you look different.”

“Well, that’s what happens when things come out of retirement.”

What did she mean?

“I cannot stay but I did promise you something and I will keep my word.”

I looked at everyone staring at me, and I wanted to curl up and die.

“Grans you can give to me another day.”

“What are you embarrassed about? What could she be giving you that is turning you that shade.”

“Well, I promised a story.”

Everyone laughed and I wanted to run but Grans held me in place. I looked at her and she had a mischievous look in her eyes.

“Elise, can you bring me a chair.”

“Are you going to sit on her lap?” Yona asked.

When my mom brought the chair, my Grans whispered something to her, and she nodded her consent.

What was going on?

“Alright from my understanding all of you are now “New Adults”. So I do not have to hold back. If you still consider yourself innocent then please leave now.”

Everyone stopped laughing and looked at me.


“This is the story of The Seven Deadly Dwarves.”

“Oh boy a retelling of Snow White,” Arnold said.

“There is snow in the story but this is not what you think it is.”

“Fine. Let’s hear it.” Arnold said.

Evy finally made it to the party, and she looked tired. Her outfit looked great, but she made it to my party after she had to work.

“Did I miss anything?” She whispered.

“Everyone sits, relax, and let me tell my story.”

Everyone found a seat and waited. I went over to Joeanne and sat near the potato salad.

“ The door slammed open from the sheer force of Janette riding Lucus to orgasmic completion.”

“Wait, what did you say?” Willa asked the question we all wanted to ask.

“Do you want this story or not?”

We all nod in unison.

Well I felt like beginning a fairy tale of my own. How it warms you. Fia xoxo
