in a room filled with tuxedo and endless white, the “you’re next” that is whispered in your ear is welcomed with merely a smile.
they’ll never know that you wish those words to be prophecy, a harbinger of what will come.
but they are as much prophets as you are content with wishes.
#a little princess
I think it’s no mistake that she is my namesake. My parents must have known what joy her films would bring to me, especially with my eternal fascination with secret princesses and happy endings and tap dancing. Although she’s sadly gone, we have those indelible films and that beautiful Shirley Temple smile.
