Thursday photo prompt – Peace – #writephoto

Sue’s back with her #WritePhoto Prompt this week!

“Now this,” tour guide Tim indicated, “is the famous bed!”
His words were greeted by coos of excitement and eightened whispers in all manner of languages.
The 20-strong group were the fifth he’d taken around today already.
“Yes, here is the bed where Snow White lay, after consuming that poisoned apple, given to her by her Evil Stepmother. Here is where the seven dwarves congregated each day and night, keeping watch over the body of their beautiful princess. And here is where the Prince came to kiss her, and wake her up!”
Cue the phone cameras and proper cameras clicking, image after image from all angles.
“What, you want to lay there and have your photo taken? With your own Prince Charming kissing you? Hmm… Well this is a historical landmark… I’m not sure I can bend the rules. If everyone was to request the same, the bed would be worn away by now. But, if you are prepared to make it worth my while…”
Pocketing another £50, Tim happily clicked photo after photo. Several others came over and requested a similar photo opportunity in various forms of Pidgin English
He led the group back to the coach half an hour later, patting his pocket… Nice little earner! These tourists are so stupid! Don’t they realise Sleeping Beauty was just a Fairy tale!
And that bed? Just knocked up by a friend of his! Or so he was told. Who cares, anyway? He was making a packet with this Fairytale tour!
Unbeknownst to him, seven pairs of eyes followed him back, peeking from a nearby bush…

    Who is fooling whom??? Pretty funny. I like the ironic ending.

    Now, who’s saying those seven pairs of eyes belong to dwarfs? I reckon they could be killer Gnomes.
    Nice touch on a classic fairytale, Ritu.

    I don’t fancy Tim’s chances once those dwarves get their hands on them!! He is going to get his come-uppance that’s for sure! 🙂

    I had the same feeling as Sue. Rotten, little boy. 😉

    Anyway, nice take on this. That photo has such a fairy tale feel to it. Magical.

    As I read your tale Ritu I had a sneaking suspicion there was a twist coming up, and I was right..so well done.

    Nice cycle through the tourists’ belief to the guide’s disbelief and back to belief again with those seven pairs of eyes.

    Tim is in for a rude awakening (and not with a kiss)!

    This is great, Ritu! I also thought of Snow White when I saw the prompt, can you believe it?! Great minds think alike 😀
