"The tragedy of modern life is how simply each one of us can be replaced", said the light bulb and flickered gloomily.
She said I'm heartless, so I ripped my chest open to prove her wrong.
See? In your face, bitch!
With every cookie she ate, her body grew a bit bigger
and with every comment they made, her heart grew a bit smaller.
I: Wow, you can fly, that's awesome!
SHE: Not that awesome.
SHE: I cannot land.
I: You cannot land...?
SHE: Haven't touched the ground in four years.
SHE: I miss running.
I: Running? Running's not a big deal.
SHE: Ever watched Forrest Gump?
I: Yeah, okay, so just running?
SHE: I wish I could pick up a flower. Or Join my friends in school- I go too high, I can't enter the class. People keep asking me to get their kites out of trees and I'm dreaming of holding the string.
I: Oh... what if I'd pull you down real hard?
SHE: It won't work and you may rip my arm off.
I: So what can I do for you?
SHE: You can climb this tree and hug me. I miss those too.
Some people are allways wrong, and she was one of these people. Even when she knew what the right thing to do was, she still got it wrong. And that's how she got lost that day.
At the morning she found herself in an unfamiliar place, so she made the wrong turn, and then another one, and another one and by then she was already in a really spooky place from which she wouldn't know how to get back, even if she wanted to.
So she simply stood there, waiting for the piper to show her the way back. She simply stood there, knowing very well that this waiting is wrong as well.

The look on her face expressed deep loathing and excruciating pain, but I refused to apologize. I mean, I can't be blamed, I'm nothing but a LEGO brick.
I came up to him all excited and he gave this cute childish yawn and said "hey, where's my dragon egg" and I was like all shocked and WTF, it was supposed to be a surprise but he just mumbled "oh, never mind" and came up to say hello and a kiss and whatever.
The original ending makes my brain scream 'WTF??' Are we telling unpopular kids that one day they will be cool and pretty? And if they won't?
This story shouldn't be about waiting to find out you are actually great [I'm a swan now! All the ugly birds can go to hell!]. It should be about loving yourself as you are.
