An Ugly Duckling

This is a story of an ugly duckling that turns into a beautiful swan… Temporarily.

Rosemary’s childhood memories were far from sweet. Even though her father was good looking and her mother was a real beauty, Rosemary was just a fat little girl with a ton of freckles, pale skin, and black hair. Boys and girls mocked at her because she was fat and had frizzy and poofy hair. She cried a lot, but it didn’t turn her into a bitchy and cruel woman. She was lonely.

At the age of 10, Rosemary moved out of town because her dad received a better job. Nobody missed her, yet no one forgot her.

At the age of 22, she came back to her hometown and surprised everybody, including her childhood friends (friends, really?). The ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan. She was slim and her freckles had gone. Her hair? It was flawless brunette hair.

Why did she come back? She said she missed her hometown despite what happened in the past. Her father had passed away and her mother had a new boyfriend. She wanted to be independent hence she looked for a job in her hometown.

Soon after she moved, Rosemary became the talk of the town. During the day she worked as a scientist, while at night she usually went out with many many guys. She did not settle for one guy, and all the guys she dated left the town for no reason, including the last single guy in town. People assumed they were so broken hearted.

Well, they were not.

Rosemary had a secret for her beauty. She had to drink one glass of blood of every man she dated once every seven days before she went to bed. That was the dark promise she made together with her mother to keep the beauty. Before Rosemary’s father passed away, her mother drank his blood every day. Now that he died, her mother had to hunt for men, that was why they could not stay together.

Rosemary told her mom that not a single guy wanted to be with her once she sucked his blood. They freaked out and suddenly left the town. She desperately tried to find someone who was like her father, accepting her mother despite everything.

One day, tired of keeping her effort, Rosemary broke her promise. After seven days, she did not drink a glass of blood and went to sleep right away.

In the morning, police cars gathered together in front of her house. Apparently they heard a scream from inside the house and found Rosemary’s body on the floor, in front of a full length mirror. It seemed that Rosemary was died due to heart attack. She was shocked and disgusted by what she was seeing.

Herself.
