Guest Post: Maleficent
A young boy would not stop badgering me with his requests that I make an appearance at his place of primary learning. He had read the book The Kingdom Keepers which reveals my role in the dark side of the Magic Kingdom once the park closes at night. His request was that I bring some of my darkest magic and present it to the underlings in his classroom.
I finally consented to appear. However, I do not have the time to trifle with the admiration of peasants so I brought some novice magic in all confidence that it would impress them sufficiently.
I was not mistaken... and they were not disappointed.
First I used my magical powers to slice an unpeeled yellow fruit before their eyes.
They were awestruck by my abilities.
Next I had one of the little minions think up any name he could muster and the lot of them could not believe their shifty little eyes when they realized that I had already written that name on a piece of parchment in a sealed envelope.
I had initially planned to depart at this point, but the young boy who had invited me begged for more. I do love to see children groveling at my feet, so I consented to perform a bit of black magic. I exited the room as the boy and his classmates chose an object and when I returned the child would point to various items, asking if they were the chosen entity.
As anyone would expect, I chose correctly every time.
I had planned to make my departure with a flourish, disappearing in a cloud of amethyst smoke, but I instead opted for exiting through their learning portal as I had seen others do.
I had obviously already astounded them sufficiently and did not want to over-stimulate their tiny brains.
I am confident in the fact that they were all exceedingly impressed by my mere presence.
As well they should be.
